Video of the Week: Obama's Speech to Students

This was the big controversy? Seriously? C'mon, everyone... let's all take a big deep breath. Think straight about this. 2nd graders can't vote. They don't care about healthcare reform (or do they?). This isn't an attempt to brainwash kids. It's a solid message every student should hear. I hope yours did.

Unfortunately the speech didn't tie to any of the No Child Left Behind objectives. I know of one teacher who said she couldn't spare instructional time for non-objective related activities.

The speech was benign, I think the furor was really over the original iteration of the support materials that the DOE offered up - and later revised.
