Obama disses American students……in Australia

Obama To Aussie Students: Our Kids are Behind

by Keith Koffler on November 17, 2011, 9:28 am

There’s an unwritten rule in politics that politicians must not criticize the president when they are overseas. How about adding America’s school kids to the list of untouchables?

Speaking at a high school in Australia, President Obama told a group of Aussie students that their counterparts in his country had “fallen behind” when it comes to math and science, saying he wants to reform the public school system.

Obama also asserted that poor children don’t get “support they need when they’re very young’’ and are “already behind’’’ when they enter grammar school, according to a press pool report.

Obama might have thought twice before casting America’s public school kids in a negative light to foreign students. Especially since he can exclude his own children from the system by paying for them to attend private school.

One might feel uncomfortable saying many types of unpleasant things about our country to people overseas. But then, one would have to be an American exceptionalist.

  1. WTH?? So did he have any type of plan for what he is going to do to fix our school system? Or did he just want to give some Aussie kids a pat on the back for having leaders that value their education over personal gain. So sad that this is our “Leader”
