The group behind this rally issued a press release, which Sykes proudly posted on his blog. This release starts out with this:
Holding signs that read "Don't kick me out of school, I didn't do anything wrong" and "This Vote Will Go on Your Permanent Record!" a crowd of more than 1100 students, parents and educators rallied at the Wisconsin State Capitol Wednesday afternoon.
Gee, it seems to me that before this, whenever there was an education-related protest or demonstration or rally in Madison, Sykes would be the first one out there, squawking like a wet hen, about how those darn kids should be in school, and not out there trying to protect their schools.
I think the kids should have held a virtual protest. It would have been more apropos.
UPDATE: Ken Mobile raises some interesting questions about virtual schooling and has a link of his own to a site raising even more.
