Greene County Schools Show Obama Speech

Students in Greene County Schools were among those who watched President Obama's speech live Tuesday.

The president's speech was geared towards school age children and he spoke of the importance of education, and staying in school, plus some of his experiences as a kid.

Ever since the speech was announced it's been a controversial topic of whether schools would allow a live broadcast. Greene County superintendent Patrick Miller decided to let the parents make the decision for their child. The school district sent home permission slips. He says he's glad the schools were able to accommodate the students that did want to watch it.

Superintendent Miller said only a handful of parents opted to have their students not see the speech at West Greene Elementary.
