You've probably already heard about some of the controversy about President Barack Obama's address to students Tuesday. We ran a story yesterday about what some of the local schools and politicians are saying.
Durham Public Schools say it'll be up to individual principals to decide whether or not to stream the speech. But I know one school that'll definitely be watching: Southern High is getting a visit the day of the speech from Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson.
The White House is sending officials from different departments to schools around the region to encourage students to work hard and watch the live streams with classes.
Obama is not the first president to directly address students, but he's being accused of pushing a political agenda during the height of the health care debate. Then again, the White House is planning to release an advance copy of the speech Monday to quell parental fears.
What do you think about Obama's plan to speak directly to students Tuesday?
