Does this look like suspicious double-speak.......or what?
Peace and Justice sound so honorable.
They want to teach our "teachers" (dealing with our kids) just exactly WHAT?
Check out this non-profit "Center" online. You will start to see their True Agenda.
They want to teach our Teachers how to teach about:
Click here: We are the 99%
Click here: Occupy Wall Street

The 99%’s Deficit Proposal: How to create jobs, reduce the wealth divide and control spending

10 Things We Want: A Proposal for Occupy Wall Street, Submitted by Michael Moore

Peace and justice, my a_______!
This is all about bringing a certain POLITICAL AGENDA into the school systems!!!!
And the "school system" is giving 5 units of Continuing Education for this.
We need to find out which teachers are attending this propoganda machine....and which people in the School District/System are accrediting 5 units of CED to this skewed BS.

Also, WHO from Danville Express posted this ADVERTISEMENT? Why is their no AUTHOR listed?

Dear Editor,

Again, this another commercial (non-profit) venture, Web Link, violating your terms of use against commercial promotion.

Peace and Justice are a very worthy causes but this promotes a paid event.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
