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 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
