Pres. Obama’s Very Good Speech

Posted by madjillmom on September 8, 2009

Pres. Obama gave a nice speech to the nation’s school children this morning.  I would take issue with his use of  “I” in the part about fixing up the schools and getting them computers and such.  The pronoun isn’t a good choice but reflects the ego of the speaker.  I honestly do not know how my kids were able to get through High School without such a wonderful speech.  Oh, yeah, I threatened them with a fate worse than death if they didn’t.

I think that the President should use his bully pulpit to address the performance of black and hispanic students who historically under achieve or have higher dropout rates.  He should take that issue and push it.  No Excuses is a good theme for that kind of speech.
