Have Confidence in Our Kids: An Anecdotal Report on Obama's School Speech

Granville High Schools gave students a choice of watching the President’s speech or attending their regular classes.  We have a 17 year old, V, living with us this year:

Me:  Did you go to the speech?

V: No, I decided I did not want to hear Obama.

Me: How many kids went?

V: I would say most.

Me: What did the kids who went say about it after?

V:  Most of them just wanted to get out of class.
