Give 'em a break: Crist wants schools to let kids watch O's inauguration


Governor Charlie Crist is asking that all Florida schools allow students to watch Obama's inauguration.

He's urging schools to take a break from studies on Tuesday to witness the historic event. Crist wrote that it would further the students' civic education.

UPDATE: We contacted Crist's office to see whether he's decided who will be footing the bill for his own trip to O's inauguration in DC. No reply. So we're guessing it's still "that has not been determined".
