Just heard Fox News is at Brookfield Central?
I don't have cable TV, but you might want to watch for the piece if you do.
These 2 communities are not alone; all across the country school districts are opting out of showing the speech and doing the lesson plans.
President Obama's speech is available now online. Transcript: I did like the section where he said, "Every single one of you has something you’re good at. Every single one of you has something to offer," because it stresses personal worth.
Original email from Secretary of Education Arne Duncan: Why was this portion included? "Educated people are more active civically [sic] and better informed on issues affecting their lives, their families and their futures. Issues like living wage, health care, increasing militarism? torture?" (That's not even a sentence. What action did Arne intend be taken on those topics?)
