Obama urges kids to “stay in school”

President Barack ObamaPresident’s Barack Obama’s speech to school children across the nation today caused a stir of controversy among schools and parents alike. Although America’s schools were not required to show the President’s back-to-school speech to students, some schools forwent showing the speech altogether. The President urged students to pay attention in class and listen to their teachers.

“The truth is, being successful is hard,” the President said, “You won’t love every subject you study. You won’t click with every teacher. Not every homework assignment will seem completely relevant to your life right this minute. And you won’t necessarily succeed at everything the first time you try.” He also told students that by giving up on themselves they not only let their country down, but they also let themselves down.

The kids have a lot of homework to do starting now.
