This is getting bad!
Would you be willing to protest your local public school teacher lay offs? How about get arrested?

The head of the Los Angeles teachers union was among 39 people arrested Friday during a sit-in outside the school district headquarters, one among dozens of peaceful protests around the city by teachers and students outraged by plans for deep cuts in education spending.
"Don't raise class size!" the protesters chanted before Los Angeles Police Department officers moved in to break up the demonstration.
United Teachers Los Angeles President A.J. Duffy was among those who had raised his fist in response to police requests to disperse, and who was bound with plastic handcuffs and taken away in an LAPD bus for booking on a charge of blocking a public street.
