What Our Kids Should REALLY hear in School Today!

by Steve Ray on September 7, 2009

First, is a link to the proposed speech Obama will give to schools across America. If I had kids in school they would be home with Obaba flu today. And below is what every kid should hear in school today presented by comedian Red Skelton.

I would also like to see the Lesson Plan that goes along with this speech — “How can you help your president?” is the title, if I remember correctly. And it will be interesting to see how teachers are going to “editorialize” Obama’s talk and expand upon it.

I just read in the incredibly liberal International Herald Tribune (which is the only English paper we have easy access to here) that school districts are getting more angry calls from parents over Obama’s planned talk, than any other topic in recent memory. Many thousands are keeping their kids home.

One Commenter in my post a few days ago (I’d Keep My Kids Home on Tuesday) a poster made fun of the resistance because of the seemingly innocuous content of Obama’s speech. I posted my response to him under that previous post.

Here’s what our kids should hear in school today!

Steve,

I wanted your thoughts on this Obama speech thing. My daughter’s Catholic (that’s right, Catholic) school is planning on showing the taped Obama speech (from Tuesday when he spoke to the public schools) tomorrow. My daughter will not be attending.

However, is this just as scandalous as Notre Dame allowing Obama to speak to its students? Both are Catholic institutions, both are “inviting” Obama to speak, and both are implicitly holding him up as someone worthy of honor. I would argue that my daughter’s elementary school (she is in kindergarten) is more scandalous because those kids are children, whereas the graduates at ND were at least adults.

Your thoughts on my being right, or if not, where my logic is astray, would be appreciated.

Thanks, and keep up the great work!

STEVE RAY HERE: JASON, I THINK YOU ARE RIGHT. IF I PAID TUITION TO THE SCHOOL I WOULD MAKE A SERIOUS PROTEST AND KEEP MY CHILDREN HOME.

I also didn’t allow my son to go to school that day.
