If you live in Texas, you can opt your child out of this.You don't have to keep them home.
Also your school board can call a special session tomorrow for a Labor Day meeting to abolish presentations like this from your child's school. See details below the video.

Subject: Obama Using Schoolkids
I'm sending this report out as an urgent alert. As many of you
probably already know, Barack Obama is staging a political
propaganda event on Tuesday September 8th where he will address the
nation's schoolchildren in a live speech. Fox News has the details
My State Board of Education member Barbara Cargill, R-The
Woodlands, said parents are complaining to her about the speech
taking up valuable and precious instruction time.
Even more Orwellian though are the follow-up activities that go
along with the speech.
Students are encouraged to "write letters to themselves about what
they can do to help the president" and to consider and ask
questions such as "Why does President Obama want to speak with us
today? How will he inspire us? How will he challenge us?"
Children are young, impressionable, and eager to please. They
should be considered off-limits to a politician pushing a socialist
Thankfully, there are things that can be done.
1. Parents can choose keep their kids at home if their school is
going to show the president's propaganda message.
2. Texas parents have the right to opt their kids out of programs
to which they object.
3. Principals and superintendents do NOT have to show this program
in their schools. It is not a mandate from the federal government
(at least not yet) and is optional. Contact your local school and
tell the principal and superintendent that you do NOT want this
shown at school and taking away from precious instructional time.
Remember it's your tax dollars that are paying to show this
program! Obama isn't paying for this out of his campaign funds.
4. School boards have the authority to implement a Local Policy
that would prevent this from taking place. They would have to work
quickly to call a Special Meeting (which requires a 72-hour notice
in Texas). This could be done as late as Friday afternoon to allow
for a School Board Special Meeting on this coming Monday, Labor
Day. At that meeting your school board can implement a revision to
one of their Local Policies, such as Policy EMB (Miscellaneous
Instructional Policies : Teaching About Controversial Issues), to
create a local school district ban on a category of events such as
video presentations by politicians. Contact your local school board
members and let them know that this is an option that they can
excercise. This is an unusual circumstance and most of them will
not be aware that this is even possible.
It is unfortunate that so many school districts across our state
are treating this as a "news event" and allowing a political speech
to displace classroom time. Imagine: millions of our students
being propagandized to accept Obama's socialist rhetoric under the
authority of their classroom teacher.
This is not "news" nor is it "history," it is simply a political
stunt. It is imperative that action be taken to prevent
impressionable children from being used as political fodder.
Contact your local school and see if this propaganda event is being
broadcast. Time is of the essence because if your local school
board is going to take action, then it requires a Special Meeting
that takes a 72-hour notice here in Texas. This makes Friday the
absolute last day to call a meeting in time to prevent this from
