That's because of a televised Address to the Nation's School Children by President Obama. Schools were given the choice wheater or not to air today's Address or to use curriculum the White House sent to supplement the speech. Missouri Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder a Republican has issued a statement calling for any parents who keep their kids from listening to the speech by keeping them home to be held harmless from any absentee rules.
