Recruiter Offers Picketers Fake Notes

A U.S. Navy recruiter in the Pocatello area offered to use his power to excuse students from class to help some pupils rally against Superintendent Tom Luna’s education reform package Monday.  Aaron Cavin, a Navy reservist and recruiter, used his Facebook account to offer to help students avoid being marked truant from classes missed while protesting. Madai Montes, a student at American Falls High School, helped create a group on Facebook called the “Statewide Idaho School Walkout” in which she and two other students coordinated protest efforts across the Gem State. On Sunday on Montes’ public Facebook wall, Cavin posted a message encouraging students to visit recruiters to get fake notes in order to avoid being marked truant during the protest/Dustin Hurst, Idaho Reporter.

Question: Is this copasetic?
