Obama: Students Should Work Hard, Focus on School

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Obama will make that point Tuesday at a Philadelphia school when he delivers his second back-to-school pep talk.

The White House released the text a day early so people could read the president's remarks beforehand and judge the contents for themselves. Schools are not required to air the speech.

Before last year's address, some conservatives accused Obama of trying to foist his political agenda on children. But that type of outcry has largely been missing this year.
