Peace Rally, Students Walkout, and Disciplinary Hearings

Show Solidarity for the Students and Teachers in Tukwila
A peace rally turned "witch hunt" ?
In trouble for encouraging peace ?
SAVE THE TUKWILA SIX TEACHERS!!!

On September 16th, over a 1,000 students in Washington State walked out to protest having military recruiters in public schools. Students at Foster High School in the Tukwila organized and 150 walked out, saying "Money For Schools, Not War." Foster students rallied at the school flagpole, marched down to the I-5 overpass, and then decided to go to the Tukwila City Hall. The march and rallies were entirely peaceful. For more on the November 16th walkouts, see yawr.org/nov16/seattle.html
Now the Foster principal and Interim Superintendent are threatening to discipline or fire six teachers at the high school.

WE DEMAND THAT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT:

1) Reinstate Teacher Brett Rogers to His Classroom

2) Drop the disciplinary Hearings Against All Six Teachers

3) Respect Academic Freedom of Teachers and Freedom of Speech for Students
