As I was looking at how various area school districts are coping with President Barack Obama’s request to penetrate every school room in America, I was pointed to Carpentersville Unit District 300’s message to the public:
“Some D300 teachers and principals are allowing their students to watch President Obama’s national address to American school children at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 8.
“The topic is the importance of education and setting/meeting goals.
“Parents who do not want their children to watch this Presidential address can contact their teacher so the teacher may make other arrangements for their children.”
It appears that District 300 is allowing parents to opt out of the “opportunity,” just as Crystal Lake Grade School District 47 is.
