I DID NOT FIND ANY POST WITH SIMILAR MESSAGE AT MIAMI/DADE SHOOLS AT http://www.dadeschools.net/

 

Community Input Needed

On Tuesday, September 8, 2009, Broward
 County Public Schools students will have
 the opportunity to watch an online national
 address from President Obama on the
importance of education. The Web address
can be seen locally in Broward County
at 12 noon on the White House Web site
(
www.whitehouse.gov/live), and broadcast
 live on
BECON Channel 24.

According to Superintendent James F. Notter,
 there have been several calls into the Superintendent’s Office
 suggesting and/or requesting that alternative space
 and activities be provided for those students wishing
to “opt out” of this activity.

“As one of the premier major school systems
 in America, we have consistently encouraged
 civics education in the broadest sense, e.g.,
 Kids Voting, elected officials participating
 in Career Days, countywide broadcast of
Inaugural address, etc.,” said Notter.
“Therefore, providing for a separation
 from this Address does not align with
 our practices and responsibility to provide
 a well rounded, quality education for all students.
 This is the first time an American President
 has spoken directly to students on the
importance of education and the challenge
to work hard, set educational goals, and
 take responsibility for one’s learning.”

Schools will have the option to record or obtain
 a copy of the Address for later educational use,
 due to individual school needs, such as, tests
 at that time, field trips, prior scheduled
events, and other reasonable conflicts.
