Controversy is brewing in southern states about sending students to school Monday.
Some districts WILL have class on Martin Luther King Day, a federal holiday, to make up for cancelled school after last week’s snowstorm. Fox News starts us off:
“Superintendents in Fannin and Gilmer counties -- there’s the map -- say they have little choice but to use the holiday as a school day to start making up for nine days missed because of the foul weather recently. But civil rights leaders who long fought for a day to honor the work of Dr. King say this is an insult to his memory and shows disrespect for the holiday in his name.”
Most southern academic calendars only reserve three or four bad-weather days, but many schools lost more than a week of class during the storm. School districts must adhere to state laws, which require a specific number of school days each year, before June rolls around. But local civil rights leaders say -- they aren’t buying the excuses:
“It is a desecration. Martin Luther King’s birthday is a very significant and important day to African Americans... he is the ONLY African American who has been recognized in the history of this country, to have a holiday.”
School administrators insist they mean no disrespect, but their hands are tied. A district in North Carolina tells CNN it’s not just MLK Day they also have to give up Presidents Day and Memorial Day, maybe even parts of Spring Break too:
“It's not that we wanted to do any of this. I'm losing holidays, my colleagues are losing holidays just like students are losing them.”
Even more pressure for schools -- late spring is standardized testing season. A Georgia school official tells CNN, students need all the extra days now, not later, so they can prepare.
"With high-stakes testing that occurs in late April, we're trying to maximize instructional days before these high-stakes tests as much as we can.”
Finally, one former regional NAACP president says -- you know what? Send the kids to school. It’s a better way to honor Dr. King.
"I think that our children would be doing a disservice, and it would be a slap in the face to the life of Dr. King by sitting at home playing video games."
So what do you think about sending kids to school on Monday? Disrespectful -- or necessary?

President Obama, Aretha Franklin, civil rights leaders and tens of thousands of others turned out to dedicate the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Sunday.
OBAMA: “Let us not be trapped by what is. We can’t be discouraged by what is, we’ve got to keep pushing for what ought to be. The America we ought to leave to our children, mindful that the hardships we face are nothing compared to those Dr. King and his fellow marchers faced 50 years ago.” (The Washington Post)
Hurricane Irene postponed the original August dedication, meaning thousands of visitors have already gotten a look at the 30-foot-tall granite sculpture, which CNN describes.
“What you have in the background is this monument, or mountain rather, and here, you have the image of Dr. King himself. And there’s a reason why it’s designed that way, why it looks like he emerged from that mountain. And that reason is something we just saw in the video, something I can zoom into here, the enscription on the side: ‘Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.’”
ABC says the 14-year road to completion hasn’t been easy.
“There’s also been controversy, first over the selection of a Chinese sculptor, Lei Yixin. Some thought the sculptor should have been African American, or at least American.”
As well as over an inscription which reads, ‘I was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness.’
“In his actual speech, King condemned people who act like they are a drum major, the leader. He actually said, ‘If you want to say that I am a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice.’ Maya Angelou, among others, said the truncated quote, lacking the word ‘if’, makes King appear arrogant.”
The King children approved the monument, which marks a growing number of D.C. memorials to African American contributions. A founder of the future Smithsonian African American museum tells the Kansas City Star:
"What's happening here is, finally, the world of museums and monuments are recognizing what we have known in the last 50 years, and that is the history and import of African-American culture is one of the most important things in our history...The African-American experience is a constant in defining America. The African-American story is everybody's story."
But The Washington Post reminds readers, Sunday’s celebration started with a revolution.
“There are plenty of warm feelings flowing now about King as his memorial on the Mall is officially dedicated. But remember, the reason it’s there is because his words and actions -- along with hundreds of thousands of foot soldiers -- forced people to listen.”
The 120 million dollar memorial was largely funded through donations.

This is a video depicting the scenes from 9-11. Many videos are hard to get and many pictures you have not seen before. The speeches on the video include many famous speeches from JFK, FDR, and MLK Jr.
