There's two very salient points here. One is that the teacher LIED about the kids writing the song, that's WAY not OK. The second is that political indoctrination has NO place in the classroom. If this was a teacher writing an anti-Obama song and having the kids sing it, you'd be carrying the lead torch for the mob. Just because you agree with the sentiment in the song, does not mean that it's OK for the teacher to do this.
Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush
