At least 26,000 children will miss school today because their teachers called in sick or took a vacation day to protest proposed right-to-work legislation, which is expected to pass today.

Warren Consolidated Schools, Taylor School District and Fitzgerald Public Schools are confirmed to be closed. It is also suggested that schools in Detroit and St. Johns may be missing a significant number of teachers.

"We've had an excessive number of teachers call in," Warren district spokesperson Robert Freehan said Monday afternoon. "We're concerned about the safety and security of the students, so we're treating it as a snow day."

Remember this next time you hear the teacher cries of, "it's for the children".
