Norah O’Donnell (MSNBC) apparently sees nothing wrong with you school kids being taught to Sing Obama's praises during school time as an official school activity (Berman Post: School Children Taught to Praise Obama? and Berman Post: School Kids Being Taught to Praise Obama Was an Official School Activity). I wonder if she would feel the same way if they were singing about a Republican? It really should not matter. It is completely inappropriate for a teacher to be pushing political ideology on students regardless of age, but is especially troubling when it is done to to children so young.
