Wisconsin: 4th Grade Teacher Takes Class to Protest at Capitol

Remember when school field trips were to zoos or historical landmarks?

From Fox6:

Every weekday at noon, the “Solidarity Singers” gather around the Capitol Rotunda to vocalize their displeasure with Governor Walker’s agenda.

On a Tuesday in late September, FOX6 watched as elementary school children were led into the middle of the protest, and encouraged to clap and sing along.

According to Reeder, it’s not the first time this has happened.

“When they are here, we do try to sing ‘This Land Is Your Land’ or ‘If I Had A Hammer,’ things they might be familiar with that are a little less political, so they would feel welcome to come into the circle,” Reeder said.

Suffice to say, I’d be unhappy to say the least if my kids were taken anywhere near “the circle.”

Click the pic for the video at The Right Scoop. The only thing missing from the “Solidarity Singers” footage is Nurse Ratched walking around dispensing meds:

Students who display an aptitude for anti-Scott Walker protest will be automatically enrolled in Wisonsin’s “Junior Fleebagger” training program.

But at least the lyrics of the protest songs offered the kids a good grammar lesson:

The Superintendent is clearly anxious to get to the bottom of this:

I’ll bet he’d have been concerned if the kids were taken to a Tea Party.

Privately though there’s a chance the Superintendent is berating the school’s educators for allowing 4th graders to participate in a left-wing protest… that’s 3rd grade curriculum, people!
