According to a JT article yesterday, 200 Horlick High School students campaigned in favor of the recent school referendum. The effort was aided by teachers, by a group called Voces de la Frontera, and by a $1,000 donation from the Racine Education Association.
In the past, the political activity by Horlick students has been justified as non-partisan educational activity aimed only at increasing voter turnout. Not this time. There was direct advocacy going on here.
These children are being used and manipulated by teachers with the support of the teachers union. If the teachers union wants fliers distibuted in favor of a referendum, they should distribute the material themselves, instead of relying on unpaid child labor.
These kids should unionize and demand a living wage. Now that would be an educational experience.
