Obama to tell students to take responsibility

An AP story on SFGate reports on Obama's speech for school students:
Take responsibility for your education. Go to class and listen. Don't let failures define you.

  1. I'm curious whether the speech was shown in many SFUSD classrooms. I don't believe that very many of them get television reception.

  3. My daughter's Spanish Immersion (1st grade) class watched it streamed online on a computer in her class - she was quite taken with the whole event.

  6. Our school showed it but not to the kinders -- they thought they wouldn't be able to sit still or pay attention. My K daughter was disappointed. She loves her President and was really excited by the idea he would talk to her about school. Our big plan for tonight is to watch it on the computer.
