A Baptist pastor in the Dallas suburb of Arlington is concerned about what he sees as one school district's double standard on presidential speeches.

The Arlington school district didn't allow students to watch
President Barack Obama's webcast live in the classroom Tuesday. But
on Sept. 21 the district is busing some students to Cowboys Stadium
to hear former President George W. Bush speak on a school day.

Cornerstone Baptist Church's Pastor Dwight McKissic Sr. told
a television station in Dallas-Fort Worth that he wants the "duplicity"
explained.

The Cowboys Stadium event kicks off the North Texas Super Bowl
committee's youth education program. Obama's back-to-school message encouraged students to stay in school and work hard, several
district's opted out.
