“Educators for Obama” buttons are no longer worn by teachers at Soquel High School.

The buttons began sprouting up at the Santa Cruz County school and parent John Hadley complained that teachers were attempting to politically influence his 16-year-old daughter and other students. Hadley is a John McCain supporter.

Am I missing something? I understand how any teacher could think that it was OK to promote any political viewpoint while on the clock. I’ve always understood the teacher should be neutral in politics during the time we’re in contact with students.
