I'm not sure how to respond to this other than say that this came to me just hours after my wife heard griping on Fox News that the President "might use this time to use the children as a conduit to push his platform":
On Tuesday, September 8th, 2009, the President will address school children on the importance of education. It will be broadcast live from the website, www.whitehouse.gov. at 11:00am central time. [REDACTED] will be showing this address during advisement time at 3:10 p.m.
If you request that your child not participate in this broadcast, please send a note to your child's teacher and your child will be provided with an alternate activity.
A hard copy of this message will also be sent home with students on Thursday, September 3rd.
Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions or concerns.
