Parkville Middle Prepares For Presidential Visit

PARKVILLE, Md. (WJZ)– A fight over money. The president will use a Baltimore County school Monday to lay out his budget plan for the entire country.

Weijia Jiang explains why President Barack Obama chose to give this critical speech in Maryland.

The Commander-in-Chief will visit a Baltimore County classroom with a very important message. He says his budget priorities for 2012 are aimed at getting students competitive globally, and he’s using Parkville Middle School and Center of Technology School as his backdrop to talk about it.

At Parkville Middle, students know the focus is on science, technology, engineering and math.

The president’s hour-long visit to the school is expected to begin Monday at 10:15 a.m.

“We are studying about the stars in the galaxies, and I think that’s fun,” said one student.

“Our science classes are very focused,” said another.

“It’s one of my favorite subjects,” said a student.

That focus on math, science and technology is part of the reason why Obama will tour one of their classroom laboratories on Monday, emphasizing the investment in education he talked about during his State of the Union Address.

“We need to teach our kids that it’s not just the winner of the Super Bowl that needs to be celebrated, but the winner of the science fair,” Obama said.

The president wants new investments in education, including money to help train 100,000 new math and science teachers over the next decade.

“If we want to win the future, if we want innovation to bring  jobs to America, and not overseas, then we need to win the race to educate our kids,” President Obama said.

“I think Parkville’s got a really great science program,” said Patricia Devon, parent. “I wish that more of the schools offered the program that they have.”

Devon says she is proud of Parkville Middle School and thrilled to learn of the president’s visit.

“I think something like this will really encourage the children,” she said. “I really do.”

Be sure to stay with WJZ for complete coverage of the president’s visit to Baltimore County.

    THESE NEW MATH TEACHERS CAN TEACH MARYLAND HOW TO COUNT PAST A TRILLION, AND THEN OUR CHILDREN CAN LEARN CHINESE TO PAY OFF THE DEBT

    1. Will says:

      haha yeah and to like chinese food cause they’ll be going there to work. But really this isn’t anything more than ‘good public relations’ for him. And innovation/technology for jobs probably, but for the benefit of humanity and this planet we live on definatley, already excist and have been suppressed for far too long. A little bit of research might just blow your mind. Even if it is just the moderator’s mind deleting this post. Magnetic motor-overunity-Tesla ever heard of any of these?

    1. DANNIEL BELL says:

      HA HA HA YEAH A BUDGET IMAGINE THAT. A SAD DAY IN PARKVILLE MARYLAND. THESE KIDS HALF TO LISTEN TO THIS WINBAG

      1. David Schappelle says:

        learn how to spell. “these kids HAVE to listen.” you need to learn how to spell.

    2. louise barca says:

      well who do you think is going to pay our debts? president obama did not walk into the oval office with his/our country owing no one. unless those of you that wish to complain must have had your heads in the sand when president obama came into office. he told us of our debts, he told us of needing to plan to reconcil our debts. you may want to attend the meeting tomorrow, just a thought. this goes out to any and all of you that thinks our presidents visit is a joke.you should be honored.

      1. Chichi says:

        He whined about the debt—then immediately tripled it!

    3. Adam says:

      You’re totally missing the point. He’s using the school as a prop, since the budget is going to be more focused on schools and education. Are you that stupid?

  5. Steve says:

    Obama will probably tell our children they need to learn Spanish ( like Obama did say during the election campaign to pander for Hispanic votes ) to make it easier for the thousands and thousands of illegal immigrants that enter Maryland every year. In big part because Gov Martim OMalley supports illegal immigrants, pressures Police not to bother the illegals. And Omalley is a BIG supporter of CASA of Maryland. A group that prints a booklett to teach illegal immigrants how to get Maryland tax paid benefits, Social Services and how to avoid arrest by interfering with police investigations. CASA gets millions of TAX Maryland tax dollars to set up day labor sites to give American jobs to illegal immigrants. Omalley is fully aware of this and does NOTHING about it other then Governor (D) Omalleys continued support for this group in exchange for “Hispanic Votes”. Remember Obama wants to get Amnesty to the 12-20 MILLION Illegal Immigrants who would then get INSTANT ACCESS to ANY and ALL American Jobs. This would also give first in line status for ALLLLL their 30-45 MILLION Family members to steal MORE American Jobs, Make MORE Anchor babies and cost the American tax payer countless and endless generations of billions of tax dollar LOSS thru entitlement programs ( for votes ) for them.

    1. WILLIAM CLEMMONS says:

      STEVE YOU NAILED IT

    2. drew says:

      Steve quit sound ing like a spoiled housewife! Obama isn’t the reason for jobs going to immigrants, it’s the CEOs of these companies that allow them to be hired. The government can’t control who a company hires. SO direct your anger to where it matters not towards our African American President because you’re a closet racist. You sound like you atleast graduated high school so you can’t be that dumb. Punish the real criminal the coporate executives to allow this to happen!

      1. jen says:

        obama is the reason for everything is is a horrible presdient and he always make the uusa look bad and who kares abot stupid grammar and obama sucks.

      2. ron says:

        @ cracker jen
        now you know thats not the truth. you dont even believe that yourself

    3. Adam says:

      There’s no official language in this country, and unfortunately for people like you, Spanish is very prevalent in this country. Don’t like it? Move out, we’ll be happier without you.

  6. EDWARD MILLER says:

    WERE ARE PARENTS AGAINST BAD PRESIDENTS. THIS PRESIDENT IS GOING TO TALK TO OUR KIDS ABOUT LEADERSHIP BY EXAMPLE. GO HOME OBAMMA YOUR NOT WELCOME IN PARKVILLE MARYLAND.

    1. David Schappelle says:

      You also need to learn how to spell and use correct grammar. “We are parents…” Our president’s name is spelled “Obama”. The correct spelling of You Are is “You’re” not “your.” Where did you get your education from?

      1. Will says:

        DAVID SCHATTELLE….. You seem to have nothing at all meaningful or opinionated to add to this topic AT ALL other than the mispellings in other peoples opinions. Is grammer ALL that you know? See things for what they are, not what you want them to be. And what you’re doing is called Trolling.

  7. BETH ANN SWARTZ says:

    OBAMMA YOU ARE NOT WELCOME IN PARKVILLE MARYLAND. GO SOME WERE ELSE AND SPREAD IT

  8. Bryen Glass says:

    It amazes me how vocal the idiots are on these things. They don’t have a clue and show their ignorance by commenting on things that they are obviously to prejudiced to even want to understand. Oh yeah, blame the messenger of hope and answers, not the idiots who got us into this mess 10 years ago.

    1. CHARLES GAUSS says:

      BYREN GLASS ANYTHING AMAZES YOU , NO JOBS, DEFICIT 14 TRILLION, HOUSING MARKET, MEXCIANS PASSING THROUGH THE BORDERS BRINGING DRUGS, DRUG GANGS, THIS PRESIDENT LIKE YOUR SELF ARE DEAD BEAT LOSERS STUMBLING THROUGH LIFE.

      1. Bryen Glass says:

        And your comments confirm my suspicions about you – LOSER. So you think that all of this was brought on by the Obama Administration? The last time I checked, NO JOBS, HOUSING MARKET fiasco was from the George W. Administration. The Mexicans passing through the borders was a common occurrence since the U.S. took Texas from Mexico.

    2. David Schappelle says:

      Wonderful comment, Bryen.

      1. Chichi says:

        Yeah, right—Obama hasn’t fixed it either!

  9. Steve says:

    If someone goes. Ask Obama how does goving Amnesty ( that encourages MORE Illegal Immigration ) to 12- 20 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS who would get INSTANT ACCESS TO ANY and ALL American jobs ( meaning thay would jump from their little jobs to main stream American jobs ) and with their 30-45 MILLION family members who would enter. How would that help the Millions of REAL Americans who need jobs. And ask him who is going to pay with their taxes for this MASSIVE FLOOD of new people ( 12-20 million illegals plus their 30-45 million family members ). You really think these illegals will keep doing their “little” jobs if given FULL ACCESS to ANY and ALL American Jobs for them and ALLLL their family members ? Obama thinks you are stupid and is counting on his drone recipient class to keep pushing the working cloass to work harder for their tax paid benefits.

    1. Bob Portelli says:

      Nothing like some old fashion scare tactics. Pathway to citizenship isn’t AMNESTY. It’s a way for immigrants who are already here working and being productive residents to return home and reapply for Visas and subsequent citizenship in accordance with federal law.

      1. Steve says:

        HA HA HA HA HA , Almost fell off my chair. “Pathway Is NOT Amnesty” ????? Wow, thats the biggest laugh Ive heard. The problem its the biggest Obama lie of ALL Time. It is 100% Amnesty. These ILLEGAL IMMIGERANTS would get REWARDS NOT NOT NOT NOT Offered to LEGAL Immigrants that come LEGALLY. They would get HUGE benefits and be reguired to do almost nothing to get in the USA before HONEST Immigrants who really come to be Americans….. Has anyone ever wondered why NO OTHER GROUP DEMANDS we learn THEIR LANGUAGE in the USA ? WHY ALL other immigrants come and they assimilate to be Americans and follow our laws, Our customs, Our Holidays….. And this “New Group” I dont have to say who. We ALL know, simply REFUSES to do ANYTHING to be “Americans other then steal American Jobs, Steal American tax paid benefits, Commit tax evasion and other CRIMES that would put an REAL American in jail. For them, they get the illegal immigrant discount by Governor Martin OMalley. Who FORCES Maryland to pay MILLIONS of dollars to CASA of Maryland who encourages thousands and thousands of new illegal immigrants to invade EVERY year, they set up TAX PAID Day labor sites to employ Illegals ( they tell the illegals not to say their status and CASA doesnt ask and Omalley is OK with this ). Costing Maryland well over a billion dollars in wasted Tax dollars

    2. Bob Portelli says:

      The Bush administration attempted to pass comprehensive immigration reform in 2006, which included a fairly strict path to citizenship, requiring that illegals demonstrate that they had paid their taxes while residing in the US, that they pay a fine for having broken the law, and that they go through the regular, lengthy channels for becoming a citizen, albeit while being allowed to remain in the country.

  10. Bob Portelli says:

    Last time I checked, you don’t own Parkville nor do you speak on behalf of the Parkville residents. We welcome the president to our neighborhood.

    1. TERRY BURKE says:

      NO BOB PORTELLI I DO NOT WELCOME THIS CLOWN TO PARKVILLE MARYLAND ON MY TAX DOLLARS. BOB LIKE YOURSELF YOU HAVEN’T A CLUE. THIS PRESIDENT IS AS USEFUL AS A BULL WITH TITS. OBUMMER

      1. Bob Portelli says:

        I’m sure he’d refund you your $50 in tax money. Give the man a break. He’s already accomplished more in two years than his predecessor did in 8 embarrassing years. Do you really think anyone can fix in 2 years what took 8 years to destroy.

    2. Linda P. says:

      Thank you Bob, I too welcome our President to my neighborhood and my kids school. He is doing an awesome job cleaning up the hideous mess left to all of us.

  11. Steve says:

    I DO NOT WELCOME OBAMA THECLOSET MUSLIM RACIST CLOWN THAT IS FLOODING OUR COUNTRY WITH ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS !for VOTES.

    Did you all see how Obama FIRST fully supported Mubarak in Egypt. As the riots got larger a group called the Muslin Brotherhood had joined in. About this SAME time Obama had said on TV he SUPPORTS the Muslim Brotherhoods demand to be part of the new Government…

    Remember during the elections Obama said the Illegals dont need to learn English, American Children need to learn Spanish !! What an insult. My children are in French class Ha Ha… No way Spanish. This is America !! God Bless AMERICA !!!

    We ALL remember Obama appology tour as he would go around the World saying America is wrong at this wrong at that. Its all our fault, Everything is America’s fault….

    And then Obama told Senator Kyle of Arizona that he refuses to seal up thye border unless we accept Amnesty … Thats BS.

    Move to Mexico Obama ! This is AMERICA !!

  12. Steve says:

    Obama has already created the LARGEST NATIONAL DEBT in History. Its calculated that he has cost us ( and our Children nowe ) more then all previous Presidents combined.

    And how does Obama want to reward us. By forcing Amnesty for 12-20 MILLION Illegal Immigrants who would get INSTANT ACCESS TO ANY American job they want. Would likely cut YOUR wages to squeeze millions of Americans out of work. And bring in 30-45 million of their non-English speaking , uneducated, unskilled family members who would get TRILLIONS in tax paid benefits.

    Thats Obama’s version of a Jobs Program

    1. Paul Chiericoni says:

      STEVE, tell everyone where your from. I bet money your either not based in this country, or your from Texas. Which as far as I’m concerned we should allow to succeed from the union. It would be no loss for the rest of us, while your at it, take Rush and the Fox tabloid with you.

      Your full of hate, and make no sense. Your facts about the deficit just don’t add up. And tell me what are the repulicans in congress proposing as far as immigration, let me answer that, NOTHING. WHY, because if they even think about following through with any of your harline retahic, they would lose the hispanic vote. You guys are all talk, and short on intelligence.

      As for intelligence, I would put Obama up against any past President.

  13. greg says:

    THE SIGN AT PARKVILLE READS SCHOOL CLOSED PRESIDENTS DAY WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT OBAMA YOU GOTTA LOVE IT PARKVILLE

  14. Jennifer says:

    It was necessary to stimulate the economy and keep people from losing more jobs and housing. When Ronald Reagan was president, they could have calculated the same for him and the previous presidents combined. Out of the estimated 12-15 million illegal immigrants in this country, 60% are from Mexico. The highest influx of illegals were from India at 125% increase. Statistically speaking, the Mexican immigrants are highly skilled workers compared to the other immigrant groups.

    1. steve says:

      Mexicans are highly skilled HA HA HA HA ,,,,, Then why dont they do jobs in Mexico, their OWN Country Ha Ha Ha… Skilled ??? Maybe skilled at illegal border crossing, Tax evasion, Transportation of drugs, Not Speaking English, Ya, all the kid of skills we need to FORCE on America

      1. Jennifer says:

        Maybe you should take the time to talk to some of them. Some do speak English. You’ll realize that they come to the country to seek a better life. The little bit of money that they make over here goes very far in their country. Just because you see some Mexicans doing day labor work doesn’t mean that they aren’t intelligent or highly skilled workers.

    2. greg says:

      Statistically i hope one of them takes your job. Then YOU can do the sheep thing!!!!!!!!!

  15. greg says:

    jennifer if the illegal alien immigrants are so skilled , perhaps they can have your job as a teacher and a pay decrease at the same time.

  16. jennifer says:

    Well at least your job is safe. I’m sure they don’t like romancing sheep.

    1. greg says:

      jennifer i romanced the corp 21 years and the federal goverment for 8 years.as a war hero , and on the borders of mexcio i romanced many mexcians 6 hooves under or back to mexcio to keep drugs from a local city near you or, school near you

  21. Jen says:

    Wow, I think that we should all take a step back and put yourself in the students shoes for a second. They are about to meet The President of the United States! Please do not ruin their moment, he decided to come and meet them and learn about the schools program and success. Lets just leave it at that and leave our bias at home. Not many of us get that opportunity.

  22. Md Resident says:

    I wonder how many teleprompters he’ll need for middle schoolers? “Investing” in education (aka spending money) is not going to make our kids any smarter or work any harder in school. If it did we’d have the smartest kids in the world since we’ve been “investing” in education for years. Their time would be better spent in class rather than listening to another one of his famous campaign speeches. He even campaigns at funerals!

  28. Fred M says:

    Saw a great bumper sticker which read: “Obama, O’Malley, Oh No!”

  29. greg says:

    David, you are a moron.Is this statement spelled correctly?

  30. LIna Beamon says:

    Obama’s popularity was down currently, what about Sarah Palin. Does she know where is Rusia located from her house?

    I support Republican, but don’t agree with Palin’s credentials. By the way, when is Obama’s next round of golf? Sounds like he mastered his golf skills more than politics.

    1. ron says:

      look you cracker, republicans are dumb and dont care about no one but the rich you idiot

      1. Scott says:

        Ron how about you knock off the racists slurs. You call others racist, and not one person has called you a name. If anyone disagrees with this guy you throw the race card into it. Shows how much you know. You said unemployment has dropped right? Do you know why it has dropped? Well let me tell you. It’s because the people who were on unemployment have STOPPED looking for jobs. When their benefits run out, and they stop looking for jobs, their stats are NOT counted in the employment figures. Maybe you should know the facts, before you open your mouth. Your acting like an idiot. When are you going to start blaiming Obama for his mistakes, and spending? Let me guess NEVER! He has spent more money, than ALL presidents combined. Yes that goes back to Mr. George Washington. You can back this guy up all you want, you have that right, but until you know the facts, you will look like the idiot, and you have already shown your a racists. Another Liberal idiot who speaks before knowing the truth!

      2. ron says:

        @scott
        please show me where he has spent more than all the presidents that have been in office. you are a true idiot. also, reports are showing that jobs are opening up so, your stats are off as well. so you can try to down play that obama came in to a whirl wind of a mess and he is trying to clean it up the best he can but you have idiot conservatives like you thats fighting against him. doesnt matter what you say a black man runs your white america lollll

  31. Lina Beamon says:

    Still vote Republican in the next election. Obama Out!

  32. Yep says:

    All of the negative comments are from those who lack intellect but want to bash Obama for being a bad president. Go figure…

  33. frank coffee says:

    Leave for work now,traffic will be a mess all morning. Gee thanks !

  34. MD Teacher says:

    No matter how any of you feel about Obama, this story is about the kids- not about illegal immigrants, or his being a Muslim. He is visiting Parkville Middle to acknowledge its Science and Technology program. It’s an honor for middle school kids to have a sitting President visit their school, and shame on all of you who used this story as a forum for your hate and ignorance.

    1. walter winshaw says:

      teach the kids how to count past a trillion bumper sticker, soccer moms learn another language,and shame on you obama , obama the best thing you can do is decrease pay hikes for teachers

  35. GREG says:

  39. Bernard mc kernan says:

    What a wonderful opportunity to see & hear our sitting President. All of those people on here criticizing O’Bama about their plight, go hell, go to Egypt or better yet, go back to school. Things are bad & it’s not because of O’Bama. He is a Christian & not a Muslim & so what if he were. All Muslims aren’t terrorists. O’Bama has been more responsible for additional extended job benefits, saving social security & enabling you ignorant Americans when it’s your time to have your kids on a health care & no pre existing conditions. We are fortunate to have him after eight years of lies from Bush / Cheney

    1. JOE THE PLUMBER says:

      ha ha ha

    2. JOES OTHER BROTHER says:

      BERNARD MC WHAT HA HA HA

      1. ron says:

        bernard you are so right. but these hill billys and poor white trash on here dont understand what he has done. have you guys been listening, unemployment is going down across the country. but let me guess you idiots didnt here that

    3. Scott says:

      Bernard…..you are an idiot. another one who runs his mouth without facts. These kids have NO idea what a budget is. The parents who like this guy coming to the school have lost their minds. He is only here to endoctrinate the kids. Not one of these 8-12 yr. old kids know anything about a buget, yet you parents think it’s a good idea for someone who is clueless themselves on budgets should speak to the kids. I grew up in Parkville also, and went to that school. I still live in the area. If my kids were going to that school, and he was to visit, I would keep them home. I would educate my own kids on budgets. This visit has nothing to do with science and or math. You are so brainwashed from this guy it’s amazing. Once again you all need to know the facts before you speak. Who needs a 2100 page healthcare bill stating you cannot turn away pre-existing conditions. Not ONE member of congress wants that taken out of the law. I don’t think kids should stay on their parents insurance until they are 26. That’s crazy. At 18-19 kids should have a job. All this healthcare bill has done for me is raise my premiums. If kids can vote when they are 18, and join the armed forces at 18, they should be able to get their own insurance. At 18 you are considered an adult, and if the govt. wants kids to stay on the insurance until 26, than change the adult age to 26. Why not keep them on until they are 50. All this does is teach kids, they don’t have to learn responsibility until the age of 26.
      Your President needs to stay away from the schools, and learn how to run a country. Quit wasting money, and learn how to save, and budget the money. For all of you that like how he spends money, you are more than welcome to pay for mine and my kids portion that will be owed. When do you all say enough is enough? How about you max out your credit cards, in fact go over the amount you are allowed. Tell me how it works out, when you only pay the minimum or not pay the bill at all. This is exactly what our govt. is doing now. Spending way over the limit allowed, yet you people are ok with that. I bet you won’t do it. If you have to budget your money, than so should our govt. How you can be ok with them spending so much is beyond me. It’s common sense. You can’t spend more than you make. If you do, than bankrupt you will be. If anyone disafrees with that statement, please enlighten me, and tell me where I am wrong. PLEASE wake up. Think. It isn’t about black or white. It’s about our country, and our kids money. Watch and see. When our kids start working they may make $65,000/year, but the amount owed from over spending will allow them to only bring home $21,000. Instead of $2400/month gross, they will gross $1500. All because of our govt. over spending. It isn’t about you or I. It’s about our children. They will suffer. Just watch and see.

      1. bernard mc kernan says:

        Scott, from your thought process, you seem to be a bigoted right winger that just says no to everything except guns & Palin. We had eight miserable years of bush & your type & are still now digging out of the mess. I don’t care what your affiliation is politically but please keep your mouth shut & open your mind to new ideas & concepts. When you were a kid in middle, did you have any idea about budgeting? I’ll bet you would remember if the President of the U.S. had visited. If you can’t say positive things please say nothing. It’s just good manners & besides, make your voice heard at the ballot box

      2. ron says:

        really, really scott, your would teach your kids a budget than rather let them get the experience of seeing the president,why because he is black. you are ruining your kids man, with that comment you said its nothing that can back that up. you are teaching them to hate our president for no reason. you all breed racism man. and at 18-19 kids should be in college if they are on the right track, not working, so right there i see how much you think about education. like i said earlier POOR WHITE TRASH

  40. OBUMMER says:

    OBAMMA STAY AWAY FROM CHILDREN. ISN’T THERE A LAW AGAINS’T THIS. THE DEFICIT MORE SPENDING WAY TO GO CHUMP no clue , no ideal how to balance a budget

  41. ron says:

    its funny how people (predominately white people) blame everything on our president. okay you all are not stupid. he came into office with a mass deficit, unemployment was high and the country was in a recession because of the previous administration. the housing market was failing and it was a mess because of bush. he is trying to fix the problem but he cant because you have people working against him and not with him. i just laugh because it doesnt matter he is still the president of the united states, the first black president of the united states. its good he is going to the school to talk to the kids. my nephew is so excited the president is coming to his school he does not know what to do with himself. you people on here are just haters

      Oh Ron and another thing. Bush didn’t create the deficit, and unemployment. Your Liberal friend Barney Frank did. Bush tried 27 times to pass a law that puts regulations on Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac, but the Liberal congress turned voted it down. Barney Frank wanted those institutions to loan money to people that could not afford the loans. Again know the facts before you run your mouth. While your at it, why don’t you tell everyone why you voted for Obama. It’s because he is part black. You knew NOTHING about him, and you know nothing about the country. Admit it, you only voted for him cause he is black. He got 95% of the black vote, and yes all cause he is black. It has nothing to do with his knowledge of this country. Maybe you should read up on Obama, and what he believes in. Maybe before you vote for anyone you understand the person, and what they are all about.

        SC, Excuse me but the mess was generated by the gang on wall street & the financial institutions under the Bush administration & in large part with the ok by the Republican held majority in congress. Get the real facts SC before shooting your mouth off. No watchdog committee overseeing wall st & the banks = chaos & unemployment.

    I can not believe some of the comments I just read. These students are excited to have this opportunity. Those who wish Obama out of Parkville, please just speak for yourself, I was born in Parkville and I am now raising my daughters in Parkville and I for one welcome the President to my child school.

    It is obvious that I can not communicate with hatred & fools. The amount of venom spewing forth against O’Bama is very sad. Those responsible for this need to really look inside their lonely shell of a person & ask why & what did they do to help make this a better country. They offer up no suggestions or resolutions, only hate & NO, NO typical of the Republican & Tea Party right wing Christan god fearing all the while bung holing teen boys in rest t=rooms or extra marital affairs like Sanford in S.C. &the idiot on Facebook barechested. Such hypocrites you all are.
