Parents react to Obama addressing students on Sept. 8th

Posted:

GRAYSON CO., TX -- President Obama plans to address school aged children grades K-12th on Tues. Sept. 8th regarding education.

Not all parents are happy about this stating that government should stay out of their children's lives.

"I just believe we're submitting to our authority, but at the same time, I'd like to go more in depth as to what's going to be talked about in these schools before it's let out," parent Kurt Sutteriffel of Greenville, TX said.

Parent Jay Woodham of Sherman thinks the President is over stepping a boundary.

"I think there is an overreach here and parents need to be the one's guiding their children to the next step," Woodham

Local school district's say they are welcoming calls from parents concerned about this issue.
