I'm not saying I don't trust you. I'm just saying -- no, I am saying I don't trust you, now that I think about it.More at Memeorandum, Exurban League, 24Ahead, The Daily Paul, Michelle Malkin, Moe Lane, Hot Air, Dr. Melissa Clouthier, And So It Goes In Shreveport, Pundit & Pundette and Caught Him With a Corndog. UPDATE: Michelle Malkin follows up with a column:
Obama's White House Teaching Fellows include Chicago high school educator Xian Barrett, a fierce opponent of charter schools who founded a "Social Justice Club" and bussed students to protests and Michelle Bissonette, a Los Altos, Calif., teacher who is "focused on developing my leadership as a more culturally and racially conscious educator."Read the whole thing and, please, parents, ask yourself: "Why am I entrusting my child's education to unionized government bureaucrats?"
The activist tradition of government schools using students as junior lobbyists cannot be ignored. . . .
UPDATE II: An excellent suggestion from that role model for America's youth, VodkaPundit:
In impossible times, the only way to be a responsible parent is to do the irresponsible thing. If my son were in a public school…VodkaPundit's a dad now, and I'm sure this will be a teachable moment at his house: "OK, son, today we're going to learn how to make Daddy a martini . . ."
I’d call him in sick next Tuesday. I’d keep him home. I suggest you do so. I urge you to do so. If pressed, be honest about your reasons -- but be reasonable about presenting them. Otherwise, don’t offer an explanation. Make it a silent protest.
