At Woodlawn High, students watch as president speaks
Several of the Sun education reporters went to schools in different districts to sit in on classes as they watched President Obama's speech to them at noon today. I was at Woodlawn High School in Baltimore County, where several classes were able to watch the speech live - and where, according to Principal Brian Scriven, there were plans to record the address for those who had lunch at the time it aired. Viewing the speech was voluntary - as it was throughout the county and in other school systems, too.
I was struck by some of the insights the students had in a discussion prior to the address - and how seriously many of them took the exercise, and the speech (I do remember high school, after all).
Stay tuned...I'll have more to share as we continue working on this story.
