Honk For Peace? Lose Your Job

When one of Deborah Mayer's elementary school students asked her on the eve of the Iraq war whether she would ever take part in a peace march, the veteran teacher recalls answering, "I honk for peace."

This really pisses me off!!!
What did the other teachers do? just stand around with their hands in their pockets...why didn't they all quit in support of her, after all it could (I mean WILL) be them next. And what is next IDEAS! Looks like they didn't want a teacher..they want a government mouthpiece.

We would love to see her in Montessori education. Teaching peace is a central part of the curriculum - they do workshops and everything.
