10 reasons why we can’t let our kids — or ourselves — “Get Schooled” by Obama

Barack Obama is going to take time out of his uberbusy schedule of actually doing things presidents do — y’know being an active president, it means actively presiding over the country — namely making your kids aware of the importance of a quality education, and engaging them to pursue said education (which relates — but is not directly correlated — to Viacom’s “Get Schooled” campaign, though Obama will be appearing with King James for the special).
