Obama school speech: Watch it here. Video.



Hats off to Mr. Obama. He gave a very nice speech, this speech was not only for the children of America but was for every child in this world. It depends upon us that how we can contribute towards our country through education. I believe that every person around this world should see this video.

Thank you

Thank you Mr. President for speaking to the school children of America. What a wonderful speech! As a retired teacher, I can recall saying some of the exact words of encouragement to my children in the classroom. All students need to be motivated--they need to know that they are of some value and that they can achieve. Hopefully your address will inspire them to "GET EXCITED ABOUT LEARNING!"
