Parents Protest Obama's Speech to Students

Ad Feedback

Angry parents are flooding schools with phone calls about President Obama's upcomming address to students.

The administration sent out a series of activity suggestions for teachers to go along with the speech he plans to deliver next week, and many parents think that crosses the line.

"We've probably had about 40 to 50 calls today and probably about 10 or 12 e-mails today from parents," said Susan Meek of the Colorado school system.

"Just like parents like to preview things that their children see, we like to preview things before we present them to our kids at school," explained Tim Gresham of the Virginia School Board.

Some school districts have even decided not to show the speech at all.

In response to the uproar, the president is now posting his speech online early Monday so parents can decide whether or not to send their kids to school that day.
