No Public School Bias In LA? Well...

A rally was held by against the policies of President Bush in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Adults were urged to attend, and to hold their children out of school so they too might attend. I have no problem with that. I don't believe it's in the best interests of the kids, but parents have the right to make those choices.

You know there's a BUT coming, don't you?

It seems the Los Angeles Unified School District allowed more than 800 high school students to walk out of classes to attend the rally, sending staff and school police with the students. Public school buses were even used to transport some of the students.

That's right. Taxpayer funds were used, and public school staff took part. Think there's any chance they'd make staff and buses available for students to attend a pro-Bush rally? Yeah, right.
