Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?

Will and Bud both have thoughtful posts up about "the speech" next week. I'll just point you to some fifth graders at East Elementary in my school district who will be watching the speech and live blogging it. They'll watch, ask questions, and - knowing their teachers Chris and Niki - have a meaningful discussion about working hard and the importance of a good education.



  1. I loved Will's post about the was right on--certainly more than any of the "heads" that were talking about it this morning on the network Sunday shows.

  2. Sad: For various reasons that are still unclear to me we will not be watching it live in any of our middle school's classrooms.

    Maybe our kids should stay HOME to watch it instead of wasting time in school?
