I thought President Obama did very well addressing the children on education. He pin-pointed exactly what almost every child goes through when it comes to education. He also address the fact children have to work hard for what they want, to achieve the goals no matter what people say. It was very inspiring and I admire his confidence in telling the children like is. The parents who were scared or upset about the speech need to learn to face the facts and the truth behind it, because that's what is happening around the world or maybe just in the U.S. Most parents just do not want to open their eyes to what is really happening, that is a sad and upsetting thing.
