Apparently there is an organized movement circulating around Twitter for a PASS Day--Parent-Approved Skip School Day
--to take place on Sept. 8 in protest to Obama's planned address being televised in all the nation's public school classrooms. In fact, here's a suggested "absence excuse" making its way around Twitterdom today:
To Whom it May Concern:
When it comes to teaching my child about personal responsibility and life goals, I have determined that I am a far better teacher of those objectives than a President who has chosen to surround himself with known anarchists and terrorists.
Therefore, <child's name> will be at home on Sept 8th in order not to be corrupted by the propaganda that will be shown in his class room.
PS--In addition to the Pre-K-6th grade guidelines the Department of Ed sent out to teachers that I wrote about earlier this week, the administration hasn't forgotten about the nation's impressionable teenagers--there's also a 7-12th grade "menu" as well.
