Hampton School District Flunks Civics

Tomorrow, the President of the United States will address the country's school students. He plans to urge America’s schoolchildren to dream big dreams, respect their teachers, to study hard and learn from failure.

It's the kind of message that students need to hear. But not at Hampton Township School District, in Allison Park, PA. Hampton's website posted a message informing residents that "Hampton Township School District will not broadcast President Obama's live speech on Tuesday to any of our students. Further, it will not be shown at any time to students in Grades K through 8."

The notice further notes that after review, some or all of the speech, if appropriate, may be considered for inclusion in social studies classes, although, if included, students will be allowed to opt out.

You just scored a big red F in Civics, Hampton.
