School will be held on May 1, despite protests By Larry E. Reider

Description: Important message from KC Superintendent of Schools

Posted by editor - Fri Apr 28, 2006 13:10:49 PDT

For the record, every parent in our community needs to know that all Kern County public schools will be open on Monday, May 1.

I am making this statement because we received reports on April 26 of rumors circulating that schools will be closed on May 1. Nothing could be further from the truth.

We expect students to attend school every day, all day.

We take exception to anyone who urges students to participate in protests that rob them of crucial instructional time. It is our sincere hope that students, parents and organizers of a planned May 1 demonstration recognize that education should be the number one priority for the students of Kern County.

We ask parents to join us in making certain that students that should be in school are in school.

Time lost in the classroom is learning lost that never can be recovered.

Larry E. Reider has got some balls. Good for him. I wonder what will happen to the children who do skip school.

I wonder what will happen to the ones who show up for attendance (so the taxpayers get charged for their presence), and then skip school.

That's exactly what the California State legislature is going to do - show up for attendance so they get paid, and then skip out to the demonstrations.

And money that will never be received.

Punishing the kids won't make a difference. Punish those responsible: Parents.

Enable truancy fees.

Nothing will happen.

To make things worse, we're in the window for taking the STAR tests (reduntand/redundant).

Humph. This is written in English. They have no idea what the heck this says. They probably think this is another communist A.N.S.W.E.R. flier begging them to join the "Anti-American fun"!

Health and medical benefits, that is. Probably food stamps and welfare. Free legal assistance among other benefits.

kids in the school I teach atin NJ (%98 Hispanic ) all had flyers today asking them to join the protest . It mentioned how the illegals will show us who is running the country. Most kids and most parents don't have a clue what this is really all about and I scraped my regular lessons and talked to them about the TRUTH .I had some heated battles but eventually got through in some cases. This is a sad situation and I'm furious .

I have nieces who attend schools in the neighboring county. my sister told me the school's general policy for absences is they have to make up the time on Saturday school, which their kids have had to do in the past at the inconvenience of the family.

I just wonder if the same policies will apply to the families of the students who walkout to protest the laws of our government , but I wont hold my breath,

He should follow it up with . . . any student who is an illegal immigrant or that has parents that are illegal immigrants, upon missing class Monday will be immediately deported.

I wonder if all places of work and schools did this how many would be out protesting Monday during the day. Sounds harsh, sounds resonable to me.

No big deal . Most on here would do the same . The kids for the most part are ok and respect me a lot. But this community runs on emotion and gossip. Half them don't know what the hell this issue is really about ( not 1 kid in 113 knew May 1st is MAY DAY the Communist 4th of July ..no accident there ) None knew anything about immigration laws of the stats of how illegals drain our services and how hard working legal Hispanics and paying for them . I shut them all up eventually. All the community sees is the worn out old story of how whitey is hating on the Latino and they are going to fight back .

Any one here on FR would do the same . I don't care , I have a big mouth and I know what I'm talking about as well. HALF the teachers didn't know the REAL issues here either. ( Damn Democrats getting their info from NY Times ) I was on my soap box in the teachers lunch room all week . I tore up 2 history teachers especially ( Both young kids with a 6th grade knowledge of history in my opinion)This is one time where tenure works because they can't fire me for rockin gthe house like I did ( I'm sure I'll be teaching the worst kids in the smallest classroom with no windows, cpmputers or heat next year)

Jesus hanged on a cross, but look what that ultimately gave back to mankind. You are a very courageous teacher and a damn patriot. Thank you for standing up.

Here in Sacramento county the schools sent out a similar message, saying that despite the protests, school will be held and all students were expected to attend. No nonsense. It's a good thing too. I refuse to put up with any Che Guavara, Cesar Chavez commie crap in THIS family.

I doubt that it's due to common sense. More likely they don't want to lose the Average Daily Attendance money. In general, money trumps ideology, I've noticed.
