Sometimes fear holds us back. The fear of retaliation, the fear of being shunned, the fear that our students will be mentally and maybe even physically harmed.   

The only thing more harmful, is not holding those that are charged with ensuring a fair and equitable education system for our students ACCOUNTABLE for doing the job they are being paid a fair wage to do with OUR TAX DOLLARS.

A school district or school shall not offer course credit or privileges related to educational activities in exchange for money or donations of goods or services from a pupil or a pupil’s parents or guardians, and a school district or school shall not remove course credit or privileges related to education activities, or otherwise discriminate against a pupil, because the pupil or the pupil’s parents or guardians did not or will not provide money or donations of goods or services to the school district or school.
