Strong Talk For West Bend

Apparently, two students in Mr. Cobb's class objected to the idea of the speech, saying (loose quote here): "I don't want to listen to Obama's socialism indoctrination."--or something similar. Supposedly, Mr. Cobb then decided NOT to show the speech, saying he did 'not want to have to end up talking to a bunch of angry parents.' I don't know what the official policy of the school was, but I find it interesting that two students with obvious intellectual challanges (or, they parot their parents well) get to decide the educational curriculum at the high school. I don't suppose any student--or parent--complained when Reagan/Bush 1 made their speeches. How unimpressive.
