Obama Surprises Maryland School

Expect to hear about this on Glenn Beck: President Obama made a surprise visit to an elementary school in Silver Spring, Maryland on Monday. According to a school spokeswoman, the visit lasted 30 to 45 minutes, and Obama dropped by during lunch because he “really just wanted to interact with students.” Obama chose Viers Mill Elementary School because it became the first Montgomery County school with a large number of low-income students to become a National Blue Ribbon School for closing the achievement gap between white and minority students.
