    PROPOSAL FOR STUDENTS & TEACHERS: 1/2 day teach-in, then WALK-OUT en mass!
    Participation in this historic and important general strike should be in the spirit of changing/doing away with the system that steals from our schools to pay for wars and lines the pockets of the 1%.

    But, we don’t want our public elementary, middle and high schools to lose out on funding due to absenteeism on this day. I believe that students are required to attend at least 1/2 day in order for the school to receive the allotted $$ per student per day.
    Therefore students, teachers and parents who want to organize collective participation in the general strike should plan teach-ins for the first half of the school day, then walk out en mass! It can even be done field trip style.

    Or, there’s always the good old-fashioned sick-out!
