Welcome, Pauline! A couple or three things about this list: 1. Never assume
2. We like you already 3. We're all sort of "one size fits few" so you fit
Oh, and don't mind us if we're rude and obnoxious at times-- it's the
conditions under which we work-- no pay, long hours, idiots in control of what we're
My first suggestion as the distinguished button queen here on ARN is that you
get yourself some red slashed PSSA buttons. I can make a starter pack up for
you in a couple of weeks. Right now I'm in the middle of getting this
test-resistance gar-bage cleared away so I can enjoy my son's wedding and the
company and entertaining that goes with it next week. ARGH!!!!
Warning: more shameless self-promotion (though I really like that word
shameless these days, since it's the antithesis of Rod Paige's tactics toward kids,
parents and teachers)
I happen to have a book of my own out, which could be helpful to you: Not
With Our Kids You Don't! Ten Strategies to Save Our Schools, Heinemann, 2003,
which just happens to be an instruction book for test-resistance and
educational activism. Button stories and graphics included. You can get it online at <A HREF="http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?userid=549C7QD4P7&sourceid=00393694018164525297&bfdate=06%2D06%2D2003+09%3A37%3A18&isbn=0325004862&itm=1"
Barnes & Noble.com - Not With Our Kids You Don't! Ten Strategies to Save Our
Schools</A> or Amazon, or some Barnes and Nobles have it in stock or they can all
order it in for you, or you can get it ordered at your local library if they
don't already have it, or I could even send you an autographed copy.
If you like Ohanian and Kohn, you'll like Doyon. Oh, my! I am shameless.
LOL! Actually, Susan O. wrote the intro to my book, not to mention mentoring
me through the writing of it.
One more thing I've found really helpful, if you don't have one already, is
an opt out form right on my website. My website isn't what it should be,
because the son who is a little preoccupied with getting married is the one who
handles it for me, but the opt out form has been used many times, and often I
hear about it much after the fact. People have been printing it out and
distributing it. see <A HREF="www.rereformed.com">www.rereformed.com</A>
Good luck in your efforts. Feel free to write me off-list too, if you want
to give me your address so I can send you some buttons as soon as I can. I can
tell you where best to get a machine of your own too-- hey, it could be craft
time for your kids! They're handy things to have-- the button machines and
Mothers Against WASL
The test stops here!
