Teachers for Peace. Last month, a group of anti-war teachers met with like-minded activists in New York City. Their goal was to find new ways to oppose the war in Iraq. Why should teachers be relevant to a political or military operation? Well, aside from the well-know
statistic about colleges being quite liberal, it seems that Bush's dismantling of the education system and the economy has actually been beneficial for military recruiting. Obviously, if you can't find a job, and the military is deluding you into thinking that enlisting is your ticket to success (because they're heavily recruiting on campus), well, maybe you start thinking about that option. But if teachers can start to fight back, and educate children about their career options, and get them to realize that war is never a good answer, then these kids can hope for something a little bit bigger than just being a grunt in an unnecessary war. Maybe we can train them to be diplomats!
