Für die Kinder ::: Exurban League: Obama asking every student "what they can do to help the president"

Here we go (adding this to the nuttiness that is asking children to be proponents of the census, from USA Today: Students' take-home assignment: Census kits! now with Sesame St. characters!), but I digress:

On Tuesday, Sept. 8, President Obama is going to deliver an address to all American students. Obama's Department of (Re-)Education helpfully provides detailed instructions so that the teachers can help promote Dear Leader's message.
Teachers can extend learning by having students:
  • Write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president. These would be collected and redistributed at an appropriate later date by the teacher to make students accountable to their goals.
Not surprising they'll be "redistributed." I can't help but be reminded of Michelle Obama's chilling quote from the campaign trail, which I placed on the adjacent poster:
Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.
As a parent, I agree with Ace: "Hey, Obama, can we see the text of your speech to every schoolkid before you deliver it?"
