Fight the Furlough!

Tomorrow, January 24th, is a Seattle School District furlough day -- that is, teachers are contractually mandated to not work, interact with other teachers or students in a professional manner, or even use their school emails at risk of disciplinary action. In coordination with the teachers opposed to budget cuts, students and teachers are wearing red shirts (or pants, socks, shoes, whatever you got) to draw attention to the opposition to the cuts. Join us! If you go to a Seattle School, please wear something red. If you don't go to a Seattle School, you can (of course!) still wear red, and privately smile to yourself that you are participating (or lecture your coworkers, bus driver, or significant others about the matter). Thanks for joining us in wearing red!!!
