    Anybody heard about this?

    If your child's school allows 'Day of Silence' propaganda, keep your child at home April 15
    Let your school officials know that if they are going to allow social and political action in class, your child will not be there.

    The Day of Silence, which is sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), fast approaches. This year it will take place in most public schools on April 15. On this day, thousands of public high schools and increasing numbers of middle schools will allow students to remain silent throughout an entire day-even during instructional time-to promote GLSEN's socio-political goals and its controversial, unproven, and destructive theories on the nature and morality of homosexuality.

    Parents must actively oppose this hijacking of the classroom for political purposes. Please join the national effort to restore to public education a proper understanding of the role of government-subsidized schools. You can help de-politicize the learning environment by calling your child out of school if your child's school allows students to remain silent during instructional time on the Day of Silence.

    Parents should no longer passively countenance the political usurpation of public school classrooms through student silence.

    If students will be permitted to remain silent, parents can express their opposition most effectively by calling their children out of school on the Day of Silence and sending letters of explanation to their administrators, their children's teachers, and all school board members. One reason this is effective is that most school districts lose money for each student absence.

    School administrators err when they allow the classroom to be disrupted and politicized by granting students permission to remain silent throughout an entire day.


    TAKE ACTION

    1. Call your local schools and ask whether they permit students or teachers to remain silent in the classroom on "Day of Silence." IMPORTANT: Do not ask any administrator, school board member, or teacher if the school sponsors, endorses, or supports DOS. Schools do not technically sponsor the Day of Silence. Technically, it is students, often students in the gay-straight alliance, who sponsor it. Many administrators will tell you that they do not sponsor the DOS when, in fact, they do permit students and sometimes even teachers to remain silent during instructional time. Also ask administrators whether they permit teachers to create lesson plans to accommodate student silence.

    2. Find out what date the event is planned for your school. (The national date in 2011 is April 15, but some schools observe DOS on a different date).

    3. Inform the school of your intention to keep your children home on that date and explain why. (A sample letter is available.)

    Reason #4,215 to consider a private school or home-schooling, if there's ANY way you can make it happen. Leave the government-mandated indoctrination for the sheeple.

    The public education system in America is a failed system. I say shut in down now. We have no constitutional right to an education. Parents that care will educate there children themselves and those that don't will not and no I don't give a **** about those left behind.

    My grandfather rode a horse to a one room school house. The school year was November to April he dropped out in the 5th grade and got farther in life than I have.
