Attention-Palm Beach & Broward Counties-“TRUTH IN LEARNING PROTEST”


NOTE: This protest has been postponed – see attached comment.



A call to Action from my friend and Patriot Alison Rampersad

Join Alison and Me at the:

“TRUTH IN LEARNING PROTEST”

—Fix School Textbooks!—


Hi Everyone.. just want to let you know that I’ve stepped up as

Chair of the Palm Beach County Textbook Action Team (TAT)

to address the issue of the flawed textbooks our children are using.

The Palm Beach County School Board has received a letter and

a list of many of the errors/omissions in our children’s textbooks.

They have been asked to work with us to have textbook discrepancies addressed and rectified/explained to students by their teachers in

the classroom. They have also been asked to notify the book

publishers that no additional textbooks will be purchased until

the present issues have been resolved.

A statewide protest, targeting those counties whose school boards

have chosen not to respond or to work with us, has been scheduled

for Tuesday, February 22, 2011,(George Washington’s birthday).

To date, I have not received a response from the Palm Beach

County School Board. I am therefore requesting your help with the

protest. Please let me know if you and any members of your group

will be available for the protest.

Below are some suggestions for signs –

Here are some possible signs:

· Truth In Education

· Remove Faulty Textbooks

· Children Believe What They Read

· Just because it is in Print – Doesn’t Make It True

Please send me your suggestions.

Please pass this on to everyone you know.

For those of you in Broward County, check with
Andrea Joy Bellitto,

Broward County TAT Chair.

In the event the Palm Beach County School Board decides to cooperate,

the protest will be cancelled and you will be notified.

WE NEED BODIES!!!

Any questions, contact me.

Thanks in advance for your co-operation.

Alison Rampersad, TAT Chair

PROTEST LOCATION
3300 Forest Hill Blvd.

    Note: This event has been postponed. From Alison Rampersad:

    I met with the Palm Beach School Board Social Studies group this morning. They danced around the issue and tried to get me to go in another direction, ie…the FDOE at the state level as they’re the ones who actually recommend the books. I stayed the course, however, and told them that we are expecting them to educate the classroom teachers by giving them the same handout I’m sending you so they can explain to students what the problems are and why they’re erroneous. They said they’ll run the list of textbooks through their legal department and comply pending Legal’s reply. They also invited me to a June meeting where they will be reviewing various classroom materials.

    Soooooo…THE PROTEST FOR TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 22ND, IS POSTPONED…FOR NOW. If this isn’t stonewalling tactics, and they do comply, we’ll drop it. But I have my doubts. Thank you to all of you who were ready with your time, your effort, and your signs. I’ll keep you posted.

    Alison
