President Obama’s address to students Tuesday was broadcast to local classrooms without much fanfare, despite all the political contention in the days leading up to the speech. Several Republican leaders and conservative groups had protested the planned speech as opening up the possibility for the president to introduce politics in the classroom, but by Monday, the White House had posted the text of his address, largely silencing the clamor.

Middle School teachers worked diligently Tuesday to prepare for students' return to school Thursday.
