Valley School Boycott?

October 26, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
Some valley parents may keep their kids home from school Monday because of Proposition 8.The California Teachers Association opposes Proposition 8. It even donated one million dollars to the say no to Prop. 8 campaign.

Some parents who support it are choosing to pull their children out of class for a day. They did it last week as a form of protest, and they may do it again Monday.

George Melendez, CTA Board Member, says "It's unfortunate because kids should not be kept out of school because parents disagree with a position the California Teachers Association has taken."

Melendez says every election year the group decides to support propositions they feel are vital to the state of California.
