President Obama speaks to students...

Tomorrow, September 8th, President Obama will be speaking to students, encouraging them to stay in school, set personal goals and work hard. Yeah, pretty controversial stuff. You can read the suggested classroom activities online:

Menu of Classroom Activities (preK-6)

Menu of Classroom Activities (Grades 7-12)

Later today, the text of the president's speech will be available here.

*Update: It is now available here.
I just finished reading it in its entirety. I see NOTHING objectionable or partisan. If you want to read a partisan speech to students, take a look at one Reagan gave here. Whether you agree with Reagan or not, you have to admit his speech was far more political and partisan than what Obama will be saying tomorrow.

You will be able to watch the live speech tomorrow here:
