President Obama to address school children Sept. 8th
Big speech to young people on importance of education
September 1, 2009

President Obama announced that on September 8th he will deliver a national broadcast address to school children about the importance of education, staying in school, how he wants to improve the education system and why it is important for the country. U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan sent a letter to school principals encouraging educators, students and parents to use this opportunity to help students get focused and begin the school year strong.

The speech will be broadcast live on at 12:00 PM EDT (Noon).

The Department of Education has also asked a group of U.S. Department of Education Teaching Ambassador Fellows to develop some suggested classroom activities around the speech to help engage students and stimulate discussion on the importance of education in their lives.

Here's how the President described the speech in a recent interview with 11 year-old reporter Damon Weaver: "On Sept. 8, when young people across the country will have just started or are about to go back to school, I'm going to be making a big speech to young people all across the country about the importance of education, the importance of staying in school, how we want to improve our education system, and why it's so important for the country. And so I hope everybody tunes in."
