“Malia and Sasha are just wonderful kids ,and Michelle is a wonderful mother,’’ President Obama said in a post-election day education speech on November 4th. “But even in our own household, with all the privileges and opportunities we have there are times when the kids slack off. There are times when they would rather be watching TV or playing a computer game than hitting the books.’’
In the video above, Mr. Obama explains that his daughter Malia,11, recently came home with a 73 on her science test, which is totally unacceptable in the Obama’s household because they have set a “high bar” for both their daughters. After studying hard, Malia later came home with a 95. The moral of the story, according to the president is: “Don’t just expect teachers to set a high bar. You’ve got to set a high bar.”
