It pays to speak up folks! Looks like Obama and company are having second thoughts about his first attempt at indoctrination into his personal ideology. Keep up the good work and keep Obama pedaling backwards.

They are basically rewording everything so it doesn't sound so dictatorial.



Among the activities initially suggested for pre-K to 6th grade students was to "write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president." Another assignment for students after hearing the speech was to discuss what "the president wants us to do."

The suggestion about writing letters has since been changed to: "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."



The Washington Times was first to report. Thursday that the plan was being reconsidered. Presidential aides also acknowledged to the newspaper that they helped the U.S. Education Department write the suggested assignments, which stirred criticism by many who say Obama is trying to indoctrinate the education system


Too bad he isn't canceling the event altogether.
