How can a political speech be mandatory for schoolchildren?

My friend Vandana Murthy writes: “My son has to go to school tomorrow 5th September, 2014)  from 12.30 noon to 6.30 pm. It is compulsory to attend…to hear the PM’s speech!!! Even their test has been postponed. This is unprecedented political marrketing/brainwashing…Orwellian!”

How is it that schools are taking this kind of political mandate to the students? They have not given parents any time to protest, either. There should be a protest against such tactics by the schools, and the government that mandates it.
