You are sorely mistaken...

...Martin Luther King, Jr. was NOT an historian in any fact of the matter. MLK was an American clergyman, activist, and a prominent leader in the African American civil rights movement.

Now with History 101 behind us, lets focus more on reality here. Most of the kids in school (along with yourself), know very little, if anything at all about who MLK was, what he did, or many his great accomplishments. It is only another day out of school for them. As a matter of fact, maybe if MLK day was spent in school as a makeup, the kids could do a little more learning about the man and his accomplishments. I doubt seriously MLK would want young students using his legacy as an excuse to avoid meeting school requirements, when that was an integral part of what he indeed fought for.

Do you want to rant some more about this subject that you seem to actually know so little about?
