The president is acting like a schoolboy who didn't get his way.

Immanuel Lutheran School in Valparaiso is scheduled to visit Washington, D.C., in April and on the agenda is a White House visit. Now we find out that since the president did not get his way on the sequester, he has shut down visits to the people's house.

The eighth-graders have planned and worked for this opportunity over the past seven months and now, because of the narrow mindedness of the president, they will not get the visit.

Security will not be affected there since we all know that for the protection of the president no changes will be made, so what reasonable answer can be given to stop the visits not only from Immanuel but also all the other schools across the nation that have planned a trip there?

- Michael Millikin, Valparaiso
