It Just Gets Worse

The administration today sent an email to the staff that indicates that future walkouts will be met with tough penalites including expensive truancy tickets. But give the school's past of laying down the law and then randmonly enforcing (if at all) concerning L.A. clothing, Raider clothing, hats, phones, etc. neither the students nor the staff are ready to believe that this time the administration actually means what it says.

What further infuriates is the following line from this morning's email: "We would also appreciate it if you would not make any personal comments for or against the protests."

Here is the text of my response:

Since when did speaking out to uphold the laws of our nation become wrong in the Covina Valley Unified School District? Is the "C" for citizenship and our responsibility to be role models just talk for WASC, or does it really mean something?

I understand the desire not to exacerbate the problem in an election year, but I am not a Machiavellian. I do not plan to be a blowhard and incite the students. I shall lead by example which is more than I can see from our superintendent.

God Bless America!

I am sick and tired of the anti-American tone taken by some of our students and, apparently, the administration of our school district.

And remember the words of the Purdue band!
