If you’ve got kids in the public schools, you might want to double-check and make sure they don’t ditch classes tomorrow. As I noted yesterday, anti-war extremists are holding a nationwide protest tomorrow to moan about President Bush’s re-election one year ago. (So much for Moving On.) As part of the festivities, peace organizers are urging students to walk out of school. On the Left Coast, the Seattle Times reports:

A planned student walkout Wednesday to protest the Iraq war is causing friction and uncertainty in some schools. An advocacy group called Youth Against War and Racism is organizing a rally and march in downtown Seattle as part of a national protest on the first anniversary of President Bush’s re-election. Organizers, who want high-school students to walk off campus at noon, said they’re expecting as many as 2,000 students from 30 schools in Seattle and beyond.

Organizers plan to begin the rally at 1 p.m. at Westlake Center, then at 2 p.m. march to the Capitol Hill Arts Center for workshops, a concert and speeches. School officials are not sanctioning the walkout, which is also meant to protest military recruitment in high schools.

Many Bush-deranged teachers and officials are supporting the student bailout.

While the protest is not sanctioned, some officials are supportive. Seattle School Board member Sally Soriano said some teachers are organizing homework for students who attend, in order to minimize educational disruption.

Soriano said she may attend the rally and is personally supportive of its message and its educational benefits, if it gets students talking about Iraq and world events.

Judging how Seattle public school officials have allowed students to smear American troops under the guise of “dialogue” and “discussion” in the past, you can be sure the “educational benefits” of tomorrow’s demonstrations will be nil…unless the pedagogical objective is to expose the empty posturing of the moonbat Left.

Reason #45,978 to homeschool…
