        They've had our kids since the 70's, when they took over the schools. That's why so many young people don't know what socialism is (and why it's bad) or what it is that made this country the greatest one in the entire history of the world. :(

          WH withdraws call for students to 'help' Obama

          By Matthew Mosk (Contact)

          UPDATED:

          President Obama's plan to inspire the nation's schoolchildren with a video address next week erupted into controversy Wednesday, forcing the White House to pull out its eraser and rewrite a government recommendation that teachers nationwide assign students a paper on how to "help the president."

          Presidential aides acknowledged the White House helped the U.S. Education Department craft the proposal, which immediately was met by fierce criticism from Republicans and conservative organizations who accused Mr. Obama of trying to politicize the education system.

          White House aides said the language was an honest misunderstanding in what was supposed to be a inspirational, pro-education message to America's youths.

          Among the activities the government initially suggested for prekindergarten to sixth-grade students: that they " write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president."

          Another task recommended for students immediately after listening to the speech: to engage in a discussion about what "the president wants us to do."

          The novel curriculum plan brought sharp criticism from conservatives, including some who complained that classrooms were being used to spread political propaganda.

          In response, the White House last night confirmed they were revising the lesson plan that was distributed last week by the U.S. Department of Education.

          "We're clarifying that language," White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said.

          By Wednesday evening, the sentence asking children to think about how they can "help the president" had been replaced.

          The rewritten line said students should "write letters to themselves about how they can achieve their short-term and long-term education goals.

          These would be collected and redistributed at an appropriate later date by the teacher to make students accountable to their goals."

          Mr. Vietor said the reaction to the lesson plan may not have been so strong had the curriculum been circulated after people heard the speech, which he said does not mention any political issues and does not stray from a clear message encouraging children to excel and stay in school.

          The speech is "about the value of education and the importance of staying in school as part of his effort to dramatically cut the dropout rate. It's not a policy speech," Mr. Vietor said.

          But the revisions did not appear in time to head off the rapid-fire reaction that spread all day on conservative-oriented talk radio and Web sites. Critics of the president argued that some of the messages included in the " menu of classroom activities" strayed dangerously close to politicizing the classroom.

          "While I support educating our children to respect both the office of the American president and the value of community service, I do not support using our children as tools to spread liberal propaganda," said Jim Greer, chairman of the Florida Republican Party.

          The conservative radio host Dana Loesch even urged parents to keep their children home on Tuesday, the day Mr. Obama's speech is schedule to air.

          Not everyone was outraged by the president's decision to send a videotaped message to America's schoolchildren something President George H.W. Bush did 18 years ago, though without the accompanying homework.

          "I can't think of anything less partisan than this," said Mo Elleithee, a Democratic strategist. "It's admirable that President Obama would challenge our schoolchildren to do their best, and it's the kind of message that most level-headed Americans can easily get behind."

          Mr. Elleithee called the moral outrage " beyond silly" and said it was " the kind of hyper-partisanship that people so soundly rejected last November."

          Longtime political analyst Norman Ornstein said he viewed the strong reaction to Mr. Obama's speech as a sign of the coarsening of American politics.

          "The fact that a standard issue speech by a president, with a good, common sense, even conservative message about education, school, hard work and perseverance, is being hit hard by the right tells us how dysfunctional our politics are, how shrill the discourse is getting from the president's foes, and how some people are blinded from common sense by their visceral hatred for Obama and his side of the aisle," Mr. Orenstein said.

          The idea of adding a lesson plan to the package of materials being sent to schoolteachers was hatched during meetings between the White House and officials from the Department of Education.

          The lessons themselves were developed by educators, White House officials said. But some of the assignments, they later conceded, may appear to be inartfully worded without also knowing the context of the speech.

          "Does the speech make you want to do anything?" is one suggested question for the discussion. " Are we able to do what the president is asking of us?"

          The packet of activities was sent out electronically with an Aug. 26 electronic letter from U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan. Mr. Duncan encourages school administrators to air the presidential broadcast, which was timed to coincide with the start of school for most of the country.

          "The president will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning," Mr. Duncan says in his letter.

          Of the activities, Mr. Duncan added: "These are ideas developed by and for teachers to help engage students and stimulate discussion on the importance of education in their lives."

            It's always an honest misunderstanding when there is a huge discontent for what they are doing.


            "We're clarifying that language," White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said.
            They always come back and clarify what they say. Mean what you say and say what you mean!


            Mr. Vietor said the reaction to the lesson plan may not have been so strong had the curriculum been circulated after people heard the speech, which he said does not mention any political issues and does not stray from a clear message encouraging children to excel and stay in school.

            The speech is "about the value of education and the importance of staying in school as part of his effort to dramatically cut the dropout rate. It's not a policy speech," Mr. Vietor said.
            In the teacher's guides before, during, and after the speech, there is NOTHING addressed on these messages. The lesson plan clearly states a "what can I do for you" and message.

              I am glad for the tea parties and the town hall people, this ungodly cabal has a pattern of pushing as far as they can, then backing off at the first sign of resistance. Obama seems to be testing the boundaries.
              I am going to the nearest 912 meeting next time. We have to stay vigilant.

                    A LOT of parents from my daughters school ( including us) went to the school board and the principal to--uumm-- discuss Sept. 8th. We were very glad to see the number of parents that did not want this in the classrooms and we were also glad to see that the school had no intentions to ever show it. I have learned from other websites that a majority of schools here in Arkansas will not show it to the students.

                        I find it interesting how many people forget that both Bush & Reagan did this. I have no love for Obama and think he will bankrupt our country, but so far, he has not done any worse than Bush.

                        I think the whole government should be disolved and every one of them precluded from the election to form a new government.

                          my kids don't go back to school until the 9th, so they should be safe from this!

                          I WOULD let them watch it . I think it's important to know what you're enemy is about. And we would discuss our views afterwards. My kids are 12 and 15.
