I think you are actually missing the point of teaching children about politics.
You teach children about how politics works, what the Constitution is, the Bill of Rights, etc. so that they can become responsible, socially acceptable, CONTRIBUTORS to society...... able to form their own OPINIONS.... CHANGE the world in the way THEY see fit...
What you don't do is teach them to worship the President, that any political view is the RIGHT view, nor do you do ANYTHING that pushes a teacher's (or school's) agenda, current political agenda, or anything else for that matter.
Oh....in case you were wondering, that goes for Republicans, Democrats, Independents, etc.

Find out the name/location of the school, call them and demand that the teacher be put on administrative leave. This is absurd and an outrage. I won't go as far as to say this is indoctrination, but this is a teacher forcing their views to children.
And you're right, if this were Bush, this would have been headline news and ALL the MSM networks would have been talking about it. I can see Chris Matthews now or Keith Olberman spouting off at the atrocity if this were the case.
How the tables have turned.
Call them up yourselves.. I just did.
They are a public school with very liberal values. Kids aren't forced to go to this school, though the entire district appears to have very liberal values as well.
Personally, although I know it offends many here, I believe that the teacher was acting within the spirit of the school.
Alright I'll say it..... We know Hitler was a bad man and tried to exterminate the Jews. When has President Obama tried to do something similar that we should be outraged?
The Court's opinion must be quoted to be believed:
[The wheat] supplies a need of the man who grew it which would otherwise be reflected by purchases in the open market. Home-grown wheat in this sense competes with wheat in commerce.
As Epstein commented, "Could anyone say with a straight face that the consumption of home-grown wheat is 'commerce among the several states?'" For good measure, the Court justified the obvious sacrifice of Mr. Filburn's freedom and interests to the unnamed farmers being protected:
It is of the essence of regulation that it lays a restraining hand on the self-interest of the regulated and that advantages from the regulation commonly fall to others.
After Wickard , everything is mere detail. The entire edifice of civil rights legislation stands on the commerce power. Under this maximum commerce power, the government has been free to regulate nearly everything, including a restaurant owner's bigotry. The Court has held that if Congress sees a connection to interstate commerce, it is not its role to second guess. www.fff.org...
The food borne illnesses making headlines in recent years, did not happen by chance.The food safety bills are not about protecting consumer health. The full horror of these bogus Food Safety bills can not be appreciated until it is understood that greedy corporations and corrupt government officials have colluded so that a select few can profit from the pain, and suffering caused by illness and by the starvation of children around the world. Worse our main safeguard against unethical corporate behavior and government corruption, the mass media, sold us out for the price of their advertising dollars yupfarming.blogspot.com...
This section of HR 875 would apply to you. Penalties would be "administered" by Monsanto.
IN GENERAL- Any person that commits an act that violates the food safety law (including a regulation promulgated or order issued under the food safety law) may be assessed a civil penalty by the Administrator of not more than $1,000,000 for each such act.
(B) SEPARATE OFFENSE- Each act described in subparagraph (A) and each day during which that act continues shall be considered a separate offense.
An order assessing a civil penalty against a person under subsection (a) shall be a final order..
STANDARD OF REVIEW- The findings of the Administrator relating to the order shall be set aside only if found to be unsupported by substantial evidence on the record as a whole.
Hooray, Mr. President we honor your great plans
To make this country's economy number one again!
For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say "hooray!"
Your birth we celebrate.
You helped to make
Our country free;
You helped to make it great.
We salute the presidents.
We give thanks for time they spent
Holding high, and passing on
Our country’s freedom song.
In a statement posted on the Burlington Township School District Web page, school officials said the students were performing the song during an activity for Black History Month, which is celebrated each February. It said the recording and distribution of the class activity was were not authorized by the school.
The full statement is as follows: “Today we became aware of a video that was placed on the Internet which has been reported by the media. The video is of a class of students singing a song about President Obama. The activity took place during Black History Month in 2009, which is recognized each February to honor the contributions of African Americans to our country. Our curriculum studies, honors and recognizes those who serve our country. The recording and distribution of the class activity were not authorized.”

This is embarrassing. How about you teach the kids to have some self-worth, instead of focusing on someone who will never directly influence their lives?

I am just not understand why music programs are cut across this nation because the kids need more and more education time, but then it seems there is time for this? Time would be better served seeing if any one of these children (I believe they are 1st to 2nd grade) can perform arithmetic off the top of their head, recite the Preamble (NOW THERE IS A MESSAGE OF HOPE!) but alas I highly doubt it
I'd have to agree with ya there...

Most of you do not realize that to change the social structure of a society the children must be indoctrinated.
You do this by first infiltrating the educational system.
This has been a Socialist/Marxist agenda for generations.
Most of you are to ignorant to realize all this "fundamental change in America" that this guy is talking about is socialism and Marxism.
Get a clue learn about socialists and Marxists in America and their agenda.
What the media is not telling you.
It is there if you seek it.
