Hi wwesleyj,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

I've read the article that you've made reference to and I don't view it as President Obama thinking he would do nothing but sit behind a desk.  In fact, he is one of the most proactive presidents we've had in a long time.

We can't point fingers or place blame on the schools, the teachers or our government when our children have setbacks or failures.  It is our responsibility as parents to be proactive and involved in our children's education.  Just as we don't blame the church when our child does something immoral, we don't blame the government when they have not received proper education.  

As taxpayers, we want higher quality schools, proper learning materials, and a safe environment for children to learn in.  We expect the highest quality teachers with the best educational background and morals and we expect the funds to be available to provide such needs.

Thankfully, we have tools, such as Education.com to provide us with informative, helpful solutions and materials to assist our children with their education.

We are responsible to provide our children a well balanced lifestyle that will promote their academic, health, and overall respectful qualities and insure a promising future for the next generation.  Together we can make a difference, but it must start at home.

Best wishes!

Well, we all want our presidents to do all things: to have the oratory of JFK, the confidence of FDR, the resonant patriotism of Reagan, the common-sense toughness of Harry Truman, the military temperament and restraint of Ike, the human feel of Bill Clinton. If fact, you learn the more you pay attention, that you can't have it all. You give here to get there. You accept this so you can keep on cheering that. You grow up and realize not all kinds of greatness comes even with a great man. Politics, too, is a profession. It's the profession to gives us our leaders in this form of government. I think we have a president who could thrill us as a candidate, direct a complicated, deadly serious operation like getting the killer of 9/11. Democracy works.

Break the word "politics" into the original Latin and it translates to "many blood sucking creatures". While this may be funny, it also rings true in that politicians make promises that they cannot always keep. However the first role of a parent is that of educator. It is not JUST the teachers or JUST the schools responsibility. The parents should be involved, the child needs to understand that their "job" is student. Also I think the lack of respect for educators in this country is appalling. Teachers are our allies NOT the enemy!
