I just got off the phone with the NC Board of Education. I asked them 2 questions about the Obama speech to school students scheduled for September 8, 2009.
1. Will the state of NC participate in this?
2. Will opposing opinions be allowed?
The answer to both questions is that this will be handled at the local level. In NC this means the county school boards or other local governing body.
I am requesting that all NC citizens contact their local school boards, ask the above questions and voice your concern about allowing Obama to influence your children.
I am also requesting that citizens in other states contact your state board of education and find out what their policy is and likewise voice your concerns.
Exercise your First Amendment Rights and protect our children and our country.
