A fill-in teacher at Kell High School in Marietta Monday handed out a social studies assignment asking students to compare President Barack Obama to Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin. Students were asked to find evidence to compare Russian efforts to transition from a capitalist country to a command country, to Obama’s effort to change the United States from a capitalist country to a socialist nation.
