The Boxer for Senate campaign in California is brazenly recruiting public school students through the teachers’ union.

Jon Coupal at FlashReport has the scoop and a copy of the solicitation:

Today the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association notified the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles Board of Education today that, in abject ignorance of California state law, the political campaign of Senator Barbara Boxer has openly solicited teachers employed by LAUSD to urge their students to volunteer for her campaign.

HJTA’s letter to the school district urges LAUSD to immediately inform all its personnel, credentialed or otherwise, that it would be a clear violation of law for teachers to recruit their students on school property during school hours to volunteer for a specific political campaign.

Pursuant to both case law and a specific provision of the California Education Code, what Boxer wants would leave LAUSD subject to both civil and potentially criminal sanctions. Common sense should also tell her that seeking public resources and classroom time from teachers to do her political bidding is just wrong. Barbara Boxer should know better.

Make sure to read the letter, which promises students “extra credit” and credit for fulfilling “class volunteer hours” — and recommends that government and social studies teachers share this video with their students:

This comes on the heels of educators in Ohio using students as Democrat voting guinea pigs — and a long history of the Left using your children as their junior lobbyists.

What did your kids do in school today? Ask them.


Question: What happens if the children call her “ma’am?”
