Re: The President’s Speech

Regardless of anyone’s personal opinions of President Obama’s policies, the author of this article makes a very valid, quite centering point.

Students: Whether you watch the speech, read the prepared text, or choose to do neither, please be aware today of the importance your personal responsibility and genuine ambition play in your education.

Parents: Whether you encouraged your child to watch the speech or discouraged them from it, please realize what a valuable opportunity for discussion this controversy is. Take the opportunity to have a family conversation about the state of education, and of our nation in general.

As always, I remain neutral on all political policy matters when discussions arise in my classroom.
