Ohio Students Watch Important Message from Dear Leader
From The Dispatch:
School districts across central Ohio learned today that the list of things parents want their children protected from — drugs, predators, violence — now includes the president of the United States delivering a “stay in school” message.

The U.S. Department of Education has billed the 15- to 20-minute speech as one that will talk to students “about persisting and succeeding in school.”
But critics, fueled by talk radio and conservative bloggers, have objected nationwide, fearing the address from a high school in Virginia will cross the line into politics.
