As President Obama spoke to students at Wakefield High School in Virginia, the controversy surrounding his remarks seemed the farthest thing from their minds.
The Wakefield Warriors, wearing their green and white school colors, gave Mr. Obama a hero's welcome. Students sat transfixed as he told them they couldn't "drop out of school and just drop into a good job."
After the President's speech, students said they couldn't understand the controversy surrounding his address. Ashley Carbajal and Kimberly Hernandez called the controversy "nonsense" and "crazy." Jacob Firman offered what he called a more likely explanation. He says detractors are likely "jealous" of Wakefield High.
