New Jersey's Department of Education Commissioner Orders Review of School Children 'Indoctrination Song'

Education Department spokeswoman Beth Auerswald said that New Jersey's Department of Education Commissioner has ordered a review of the children being taught to sing Obama's praises as an official school activity on school time. The superintendent has been directed to investigate, but the person already put out a statement indicating they were more upset it was video taped and released then it happened (Berman Post: School Kids Being Taught to Praise Obama Was an Official School Activity).

"The commissioner of New Jersey's Department of Education ordered a review on Friday following the posting of a YouTube video depicting school children singing the praises of President Obama.

In a statement to FOXNews.com, Education Department spokeswoman Beth Auerswald said the commissioner has directed the school's superintendent to review the matter. Auerswald said the commissioner wants to ensure that students can celebrate Black History Month without "inappropriate partisan politics in the classroom."

"In addition, it is our understanding the teacher in question retired at the end of the last school year," the statement continued.

Auerswald declined to indicate exactly what the review would entail or possible ramifications.
