Iowa City board buckles to demand to cancel learning on King Day

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Students in the Iowa City school district are currently scheduled to attend class on Jan. 20, the federal holiday observing the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

MLKIn addition to getting their daily instruction, students are scheduled to participate in special activities marking the day, including a mock civil rights march to demonstrate what King was all about, school assemblies based on his life, and projects to benefit local social service agencies.
We think Dr. King would approve of that plan. He was all about children – particularly minority kids – having opportunities for a quality education. He wouldn’t want them to waste a single minute of learning to celebrate his birthday.
Unfortunately some people who claim to represent King’s legacy have complained to the Iowa City school board about having classes that day, and the cowardly board voted Wednesday to instruct staff to devise a plan to cancel classes and reschedule that day of instruction, according to the Des Moines Register.
Why would they do that? So kids can sit at home playing video games or watching movies and learn nothing at all?
Royceann Porter, a member of the Iowa City Coalition of Racial Justice, said the school board’s initial decision to have classes Jan. 20 has hurt race relations in the city.

NORDIC THUNDER-GUN CONTROL
So what has happened to all your rights
Been taken away without a fight
Speak your mind youre locked away
An American citizen without a say
Theyve stolen your guns but you don�t care
You think democracy is just and fair
Youll find out its all al lie
When the government comes and sucks you dry
Fear the government that fears your guns
When youre unarmed you can only run
Preparation will decide your fate
When your rights are abolished
For the good of the state
So what has happened to the American dream  
Red, white, and blue is not what it seemed
Bureaucratic shit has tied your hands

In their game youre just a pawn
But youll find out its all a lie
When the government comes and sucks you dry
Gun Control-dont believe their lies
Gun Control-cause no ones safe
Gun Control-our freedom dies
When the systems laws make you a slave
