First Lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to stop in Miami today (Tuesday) to recruit volunteers for President Obama’s reelection campaign. But the location for the campaign event,  Barbara Goleman Senior High in Miami Lakes,  has some Republicans members of the school board highly upset.

Miami-Dade School Board member Renier Diaz de la Portilla has asked that the event be cancelled, while board member Carlos Curbelo has asked the board attorney to consider whether holding such an event is even legal.Diaz de la Portilla said in a statement:

“The use of public schools whose only focus should be to educate our children for political gain is downright wrong. Don’t these liberals have boundaries? Our schools are places for learning, not places for politicking.”
