The Day of Silence, which is sponsored by the Gay,
Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), fast approaches.
This year it will take place in most public schools on April 16.
On this day, thousands of public high schools and increasing numbers
of middle schools will allow students to remain silent throughout an
entire day-even during instructional time-to promote GLSEN's
socio-political goals and its controversial, unproven,
and destructive theories on the nature and morality of homosexuality.
Parents must actively oppose this hijacking of the
classroom for political purposes.
Please join the national effort to restore to public education a
proper understanding of the role of government-subsidized schools.
You can help de-politicize the learning environment by calling
your child out of school if your child's school allows students
to remain silent during instructional time on the Day of Silence.
Parents should no longer passively countenance the political
usurpation of public school classroomsthrough student silence.
If students will be permitted to remain silent, parents can
express their opposition most effectively by calling
their children out of school on the Day of Silence and sending
letters of explanation to their administrators,
their children's teachers, and all school board members.
One reason this is effective is that most school districts lose
money for each student absence.
School administrators err when they allow the classroom
to be disrupted and politicized by granting students permission to remain
silent throughout an entire day.
1. Call your local schools and ask whether they permit students
or teachers to remain silent in the classroom on
"Day of Silence." IMPORTANT: Do not ask any administrator,
school board member, or teacher if the school sponsors,
endorses, or supports DOS. Schools do not technically sponsor
the Day of Silence. Technically, it is students, often students
in the gay-straight alliance, who sponsor it.
Many administrators will tell you that they do not sponsor the
DOS when, in fact, they do permit students and sometimes
even teachers to remain silent during instructional time.
Also ask administrators whether they permit teachers to create
lesson plans to accommodate student silence.
2. Find out what date the event is planned for your school.
(The national date in 2010 is April 16, but some schools observe
DOS on a different date).
3. Inform the school of your intention to keep your children
home on that date and explain why.

I was telling a good buddy about this event over the phone and he had no idea it was taking place. This is because he has his children in Christian School. With Kevin Jennings as our safe school czar this is only another step to indoctrinating our children into the homosexual lifestyle. What God calls wicked abomination our Schools are now celebrating with "The day of Silence" Again, I just shake my head. I appreciate the information you shared to help speak out. I received much of the same information from the AFA Action Alert.ReplyDelete
It has been happening in the Washington State schools for several years. A couple of years ago, a neighbors son was sent home on that day for wearing a T-shirt that said "Straight and Proud." It was to provocative. Can you believe?!ReplyDelete
