Baldwin: Speech like any current event

Baldwin school system spokesman Terry Wilhite said teachers and principals will decide whether to work President Barack Obama’s speech Tuesday to the nation’s schoolchildren, and related assignments, into their lesson plans.

He said parents will be able to decide whether their children will take part

Wilhite urged parents opposed to the speech not to pull their child out for a whole day, but contact their school’s office and inform administrators to give the child an alternative activity during that time.
