The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) is once again spearheading the Day of Silence in public schools across the nation. If your local public school is participating (and many are) they will allow students to remain completely silent throughout the school day - even during class time - to advance their perversion-promotion goals. Most people (even some gays) understand that this is not a proper use of the tax dollars we all pay for public education.
Please find out if your school is participating in it. When you call, don't ask them if they are sponsoring it, since technically they aren't. Ask only if they will allow the silence on that day. If they do, please keep your child home from school that day. Let them know why. Schools do lose money for each absence so your protest is not merely symbolic; it will hurt the schools in their purses.
