You may have watched or heard about President Obama's speech to students on September 8. A few days before the speech, "Secretary of Education Arne Duncan sent a letter to the nation's principals, inviting schools to watch the speech and included suggested classroom activities." [Source: USA Today] Read this letter here.

As you know, many schools had already started the school year. (See our back-to-school poll.) Schools already in session faced some opposition from parents about airing this speech. Some parents threatened to keep their children at home.

We invite you to get the facts (read the articles below) and tell us your opinion about this controversial issue!
