Find out if your schools still show Channel One News and demand that they stop.
Jim Metrock has been fighting Channel One News for nearly two decades, and is close to success. “I hope that you’re mad enough that you’ll do something about it.” Near the end of this video, he tells you how to act:

Go to your school, show them this video, tell the principal you don’t want Channel One wasting school time and bringing this type of content to your kids anymore.

Then get your neighbors to join you, in the school office or at a school board meeting.

Then write letters to the Houghton Mifflin people responsible – contact info provided at end.

Very few schools still have Channel One, thanks to Jim Metrock.
But millions of kids are still forced to watch, and started the school day and the school year with an execution.

We can eliminate Channel One today.
