Why bother with the readin’, ‘righin’, and ‘rithmetic when you can teach them that firearms are evil:
About 40 students in Increase the Peace, a club led by Esposito, will head to Albany next week to lobby for legislation that will hold the gun industry more accountable and keep drunken drivers off the road.
“We’re going to have fun on this field trip, but we’re also trying to save lives,” Esposito told students at an after-school meeting of the club this week. “There’s a good chance these bills will be passed. If they’re passed, you guys are a part of it.”
If I were a parent, I’d be having a cow right about now, and would be taking it up with the school board. What do you think classmates would say about a student who, in protest, chose to stay behind, at school, rather than get a day off to go to Albany?
If you’re a reader, and you live in this school district, it’s time to raise hell. It’s only when we’re silent that we lose.
