    Political propaganda posters have no business in public schools. The poster in the opening post, while obviously conveying a good message to students, is still a political propaganda poster. What are we trying to start, another cultural revolution? Ultimately, its no different than this:

    I think it does more to promote the personality cult of Pharaoh Obama.

    That aside, Kids who have decided to drop out are comfortable being losers, appealing to their patriotism is like appealing to my sense of style, that is a futile exercise.

    Are you saying that the CHICOMS invented reading ?? Is the encouragement of reading a Communist thing ? Wait, wait a minute now. Reading Is Fundamental !!! That came out of Wshington right ? \Are you accusing Washington of being Comunist ?

    Wow look at this from RIF iNC. Welcome to Reading Is Fundamental These people are Communists I tell you ! Only Communists would want all children to read !
    These people have to be stopped !!! If they are not all of the children will be able to read and then they will want democracy!!

    "Reading Is Fundamental, Inc. (RIF), founded in 1966, motivates children to read by working with them, their parents, and community members to make reading a fun and beneficial part of everyday life. RIF's highest priority is reaching underserved children from birth to age 8. Through community volunteers in every state and U.S. territory, RIF provides 4.6 million children with 16 million new, free books and literacy resources each year. "

    "
    What??? I am accusing no one of being communist. I am merely pointing out the dangers of creating a cult of personality around a sitting president. If you start using the president's glorified image to promote education in public schools, then you open the door for future presidents to use their image in public schools for more political purposes.

    When a national leaders sees fit to indoctrinate children it rarely has a happy ending.
