RPOF Criticizes President’s Back-to-School Address

September 3rd, 2009 by flanews

Republicans are claiming the president is planning to indoctrinate students with a socialist agenda.

President Barack Obama will deliver a back-to-school video message to students across the country next week. State Republican Party Chairman Jim Greer say the president is bypassing parents to spread liberal propaganda to kids. Party Spokeswoman Katie Gordon said reading assignments sent to accompany the message are a major cause for concern.

“He is really concern with the teaching materials sent out to the schools for lessons before, during, and after the speech. I think his main concern is just the content of the specific teaching materials where there are phrases such as ‘What can I do to help the President or what new ideas is the president trying to tell me’ and I think if you read, in detail, the teaching materials, it was a clear attempt by the Obama administration to really use this address, which is suppose to be about education, to further the presidents agenda,“ said Gordon.

Florida Democrats Spokesman Eric Jotkoff said Greer has no basis for his allegations.
