The Superintendent for Loudoun County Public Schools in Virginia says students will be allowed to watch President Obama's education speech Tuesday if they want to.
Tuesday is Loudoun County's first day of school.
Edgar Hatrick, Loudoun's Superintendent, had originally said schools in his district would not adjust schedules during an already chaotic day to make time for the President's speech to students.
But in a letter addressed to parents and posted on the district's website over the weekend -- Hatrick says middle and high school students will have the opportunity to watch if they want.
Parents of elementary students will be told at least a day in advance before the speech is shown in class...that will give them time to decide whether or not they want their children to watch the presidents speech.
