Right Wing Propaganda vs the Right to Education

Editorial in the New York Times rightly criticizing the right wing attacks on our President's addressing the issue of education.
I wonder if this is more of this excess parental hovering--the attitude and behavior that keeps children overscheduled not playing creatively enough--an attitude that will ultimately lower a child's ability to use their mind nimbly enough to learn how to judge information critically.

You want parents to be able to guide their children, but to guide them into not listening to OUR president, whom we elected hands down, no hanging chads about it! That is outrageous.

I want to call on all thinking, reading, examining people to encourage their children, their nieces and nephews to listen to President Obama. Then if you don't like what he's saying, go ahead and disagree, thoughtfully and not by namecalling or stereotyping.
