Your Opinion: The President's Education Speech

Are you planning to watch the president's speech on education?

President Obama has a back-to-school speech coming up on Tuesday.  We'd like to know your thoughts about it:  Does it make a difference to you that the president is specifically addressing students, or does this seem like just another speech?  Are you planning to watch it, either at school or on your own?  And will hearing the president speak about the importance of staying in school influence you to do it?

We know that most of you wouldn't want to give up your MySpace and Facebook passwords to anyone.  But keep this in mind:  The school in South Carolina that could require students to do this is private.  As the principal says, parents always have the option to move their students to a different school.  He adds that his school has to protect its image.  If students don't appear to be doing their part, then the school could monitor their behavior on their MySpace or Facebook sites.

So you hear what he is saying; you hear what an attorney is saying; you hear what parents are saying.  We'd like to hear what you are saying.

Texting, Driving, and a Nationwide Law

Should the government outlaw texting while driving?

We've blogged about this a couple of times here, talking about what a bad idea it is to text while driving.  But now, the Governors Highway Safety Association is calling for a complete ban on it.  If that goes through in Washington, it could soon be illegal to text while driving anywhere in the U.S.

A recent study found that 24 percent of drivers under 20 years old say they often text while driving.  Should that be illegal?  Would a law make the roads safer, or do you think many people would risk a ticket or an accident and text anyway?
