Cut class for climate change!

The Department of Education will excuse city kids who ditch school next Friday to partake in a Manhattan climate change protest, officials said Thursday.

“TEN YEARS. We have ten years to save the planet,” Mayor Bill de Blasio cautioned in a tweet. “Today’s leaders are making decisions for our environment that our kids will have to live with. New York City stands with our young people. They’re our conscience. We support the 9/20 #ClimateStrike.”

Legions of adolescent activists across the globe are expected to demand immediate action to combat climate change in advance of a major UN conference on the issue next week.

As long as mom and dad sanction their principled truancy, absent kids won’t have attendance records dinged, the DOE said.

“We applaud our students when they raise their voices in a safe and respectful manner on issues that matter to them,” the DOE tweeted.

Younger children will only be able to leave school and join the rally in the company of a parent, the department said.

Participants will assemble at Foley Square in Manhattan at noon before a rally at Battery Square Park expected to last until 5 p.m.

“No longer can we allow the fossil fuel and agricultural lobbies to control the climate change debate,” a group of organizers wrote. “Instead, we are holding our governments morally accountable to youth and the already numerous victims of the crisis.”

While the DOE was widely lauded by students, parents and local officials for the allowance, support was not universal.

It's not much of a "strike" if the powers-that-be are all but TELLING you to skip class.

By the way, arent we supposed to have separation of church and state? Why is NYC propagating this climate emergency cult in the first place? Someone should be sued over theis overt brainwashing of our children.

Retard Nazis calling proponents of climate change legislation a cult, and then attempting to liken it to a religion, doesn't make it true. Sorry.

Hood,

It's a science-free ideology centered in a belief of an imminent doomsday, which can only be escaped by committing the species-level equivalent of mass suicide.

What else would you call it?

So their indoctrination to liberalism is delayed one day. No big deal.

Bill de Blasio is a hypocritical moron.

Here is the Swedish churches online newspaper calling her a profet of our time.

Here is a Swedish article on a German church comparing her with Jesus.

Here is Sarah Silverman saying she is the second coming of Christ.

Do with that, what you will.

“Won’t somebody *please* think of the children?!”

I wonder how many of these kids would show up if the rally was at 9AM on a Saturday?

I thought that link would take us to a video of Pat Schroeder crying about the children. She made a career of it.

This is the stupid shit that conservative media gaslights their idiot followers with while Trump is brazenly doubling down on corruption.

It's so sad how stupid and reactionary Rugian is.

Dukhat,

How is expressing criticism of the recent trend of government bodies all but pushing youjg students in their ward towards protesting for certain political positions considered being "gaslighted?"

Until you demonstrate an understanding of what that term actually means, you are hereby banned from using it. Violating this ban will result in being subjected to my usual amount of contempt for you, with the added bonus of being reminded that you made yourself yet again look like a fool.

Dukhat you think they would let children skip a day of school to attend a pro life rally?

"“We applaud our students when they raise their voices in a safe and respectful manner on issues that matter to them,” the DOE tweeted."

I'm willing to bet this only applies when the students raise their voices in support of the liberal stances on any issue.
