    Honestly I am divided on the issue. While on one hand, what they are doing is criminal, sometimes civil disobedience is required for justice. Come to think of it, this reasoning may apply to the doctors as well, so I may reverse my earlier statement. I need to think on it some more.

    I am all for protest if you truly believe in the matter. But to lie or use fake excuses and get someone to forge one for you isnt very tactful. What is this showing the youth? Lie and you may be what you want?

    The problem is that there are those who will try to unduly punish the teachers for ideological reasons over and above a normal day of not showing up, which means that they would be in the right to attempt to protect themselves.

    Sure protect themselves..Take a vacation day. But do NOT lie about it. If you truly believe in your cause, stand up for it but honestly.

    I was not under the impression that teachers get vacation days with summer and all.

    If it was a real doctor, how are the notes fake?

    I do believe some teachers get personal days. This is not sick days. My apologies for using "vacation"
