Technical difficulties prevent students from seeing Obama
Some Maryland students had difficulty seeing the president's speech today and it wasn't because their teachers weren't trying hard to get it to them. At three schools visited by Sun reporters this morning, the feed through the Internet did not work and students saw virtually nothing of the speech. At some schools, they saw bits of the speech, but teachers gave up after awhile and either read the speech or dismissed their students and said they would let them see it tomorrow morning.
Two of the schools were in the city and a third was in Anne Arundel County. All of the schools were attempting to get the speech over the Internet.
We haven't done enough reporting yet to tell you how widespread this problem was, but we would like to hear from you if your school had problems. And for those of you who heard the speech: What did you think?
