Letter to the Editor: To the editor: They’re doing this as a scheduled school activity!  Led by their teachers, these kids are being indoctrinated with leftist propaganda, all funded by taxpayer money.  Leftist teachers and administrators are using the power of the state to teach impressionable kids to hate their own country and its president.

Doctors will no longer be the final authority on medical exemptions from vaccinations and could be investigated if they write too many.
