… by them. The only thing the Burlington, NJ school district appears to be upset about is … that it was videotaped and distributed (sound familiar?). ExUrban League has the text of the school district’s statement – the link to the official school district website isn’t working at the moment:
Dear Burlington Township Families:
Today we became aware of a video that was placed on the internet which has been reported in the media. The video is of a class of students singing a song about President Obama. The activity took place during Black History Month in 2009, which is recognized each February to honor the contributions of African Americans to our country. Our curriculum studies, honors and recognizes those who serve our country. The recording and distribution of the class activity were unauthorized.
If you have any further questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me or Dr. King, Principal of B. Bernice Young School, directly.
Dr. Christopher M. Manno,
Superintendent of Schools
Michelle Malkin has much more, including detailed information on the woman behind the video, who sounds like a rabid, fanatical devotee of Barack Obama.
