All the fuss was about this? The White House has posted the text of President Obama’s upcoming speech on education — the one which was inspired widespread protest and claims that Obama is trying to teach socialism to the children.
So, does the speech say, “socialism rocks” or “seize the means of production” or “Chairman Mao is my homeboy”? It’s much more boring than that. It encourages students to work hard and study; tells them to set goals and pay attention in class; and mentions the success stories of a few students who overcame long odds.
Perhaps the actual innocuous content of the speech will put a damper on some of the hyperventilating.
