I'll be wearing red today to support our wonderful teachers and Measure G, the school funding measure to support our schools. Vote yes on June 2 to save our schools.
This is getting ridiculous. These pathetic little fashion gestures are USELESS and likely non-compliant with state law. Political statements are not permitted on school campuses. Disguising them as "showing support for teachers" doesn't diminish the fact that this is a BALLOT issue, and should be no more allowed than an anti-Obama or anti-Bush shirt.
And what of the child who just happened to wear BLUE today? One would hope that teachers are professionally bound NOT to comment on politically motivated fashion, but we've seen that many teachers don't recognize professional boundaries. And suppose students (who have no such boundaries) criticize or ostracize a non-conforming fashionista based on politics?
Stop this fashion/political manipulation of our kids!
I actually find it quite comforting to see so many parents on my daughter's campus wearing red when they pick up their kids after school. It gives me more of a sense of how many parents are already aware of the effects that state budget cuts could have on our schools and are following the parcel tax issues.
It puts the opposition I read about here more into perspective, as a distinct minority.
Red should not be worn by anyone. Red is the color that gangs wears especiallly by the Crips and Norteños. Are the parents trying to bring in the gangs to influence the elections?
Red is also one of the school colors at Alisal.
My children worn red on Friday because they did not want their teachers to be mad at them.
We support our teachers. We do not support a parcel tax.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
