Presidential back-to-school address

Second graders in Denver, Colo, watch as President Obama delivers a back-to-school address to school children on Sept. 8. Nationwide, some conservatives over the past week had worried that Obama would use the speech to promote his political agenda. In the speech, the President urged children to work hard and stay in school. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
