Obama Poem Stirs Outrage at Public School in Houston

Cy-Fair school officials have pulled what some consider a pro-Obama poem from next week's Black History Month program at Tipps Elementary. This after a parent complained it was too political for his daughter's kindergarten class.

Along with the poem mailed home to parents was an internal memo which read:

"Attached is a chant about President Barack Obama. All Kindergarteners will be required to learn the chant for the Black History program."

Parent Joseph Beaver tells KTRH News he doesn't believe the poem provides any educational value to students.

"You're not learning anything from it," he says. "I can't sit there and say in 20 years I'm going to need to know his favorite baseball team was this. That's just useless information."

I can tell you when Obama was inaugurated the Wicomico County school I work at had this BIG all day celebration.As did all the other schools in this county. I know the reason Margo Handy made us do it. It's funny how we've never done this for any other president's inauguration. I can say I have to agree with the father that didn't want his child to sing that stupid song. Obama is so full of himself.

There was a song about "Obama, Obama, he's our 44th President, Obama, Obama....." --I can't remember the rest of the words-- sung by my Kindergarten student at Delmar Elementary when he was elected. I'm waiting to see what new song they do in 2012.
