IMPORTANT! READ NOW!

I just heard about this! I took it from THIS website. Remember to let the schools know WHY you are keeping your kids home, if you so choose to. It's just another way to make our voices heard.  How dare the CTA speak for ALL the teachers in California!

Students!  Teachers!  Parents!

Join the State-Wide School Sick-Out!

Tuesday Oct. 21st

Protest Peacefully!  Show your school how important traditional families are to their survival!

Students, teachers and parents are going to take action regarding Proposition 8 on the same day… Tuesday, October 21st.  This story about the California Teachers Association (”CTA”) donating  $1 Million to preserve same-sex marriage made many people ill.

Therefore…
1.  STUDENTS Many children are coming down with something. Many California public school students are going to be sick and ABSENT FROM SCHOOL on Tuesday, October 21st. This would be a good time for them and their parents to write letters to the editor about how they feel about CTA’s donation. Many are puzzled why the professional group hired to educate them is spending so much money to push their own social agenda.

2.  TEACHERS With all those students out sick on Tuesday, October 21st, many California public school teachers intend to DEMAND $300 POLITICAL REFUNDS from their union dues using these instructions here:

(http://www.nrtw.org/special-legal-notice-california-teachers-how-get-least-300-refund-cta-nonbargaining-expenses )

The magic number is 3,333. If that many teachers demand political 0D refunds from their union on the same day, CTA will notice because the total amount will equal the million dollars it wasted fighting to neuter marriage. If these 3,030 teachers turn around and donate their $300 refunds to Yes on 8, CTA’s whole cockamamie scheme will have backfired completely.

3.    PARENTS Many parents of public school children are going to try to counter CTA’s meddlesome donation on Tuesday, October 21, 2008, by DONATING $35, $50 OR $100 TO Protect Marriage here: https://www.icontribute.us/protectmarriage/initiative/main .   Make sure to put “CTA” in the referral box!

CTA President David Sanchez donated over 1 million dollars of our teacher’s money to the No on 8 campaign.  These people fought to take away parent’s right to be notified of gay marriage indoctrination in their schools.  Get the facts! Let them know your opposition!  Make a difference with peaceful protest!

Today? My kids are already at school. Maybe they'll plan another one, like on a Friday so I can have a three day weekend.

Oh, dear, I wish I had seen this sooner! Too late! Well, we knew about the donation. Maybe I am too much into giving people the benefit of the doubt but I am guessing the reason the CTA is against Prop 8 is because of the whole bullying issue. If kids aren't taught that homosexuality is normal, then that leaves room for bullying. Kids who are bullied bring guns to school and teachers get shot and killed. So, I see their reasoning (if indeed that is what they are thinking) but I would have done something about it today if I had known. :)

how did this go? Do you know?

So proud of you for putting this out there. Every little bit helps. I live in Washington State, but we are all watching this prop8 thing. It affects us all.

THIS IS AWESOME!! My husband is a teacher and has been furious about his dues being used for political purposes AND about the ad that says
"California teachers ...." He has been in a running war with the Pres of our local teachers union (who coincidentally is a member and has pretty much stopped going to church because of this...)This is wonderful, thank you!

Not only did the CTA give 1.3million to fighting proposition 8, they gave another 450k to fighting prop 4, parental notification for abortion law. That was AFTER the teachers had voted to use that money for lowering class sizes. Neither prop 4 or 8 has anything to do with schools. The teachers are just as angry as we are. See some of the fallout from the backlash here:
