Obama Calls Absent Black Fathers to Task
Misty referenced part of this speech in one of her posts, but I felt it deserved full "blog" status. I love how Obama wants to address such tough issues, even if they might be controversial. That's what a true leader does. As a teacher, I was so happy about his comment on students trying to earn A's instead of B's. I can't tell you how many of my students (and even their parents) seem totally fine with D's because it's "passing." Obama can help us raise the bar!
