At union's request, city kids offer action plans for Obama

Here’s an idea for the new president: Make people happy by giving them pennies.

Miah sent the story, which you can view in full below the jump, to the state teachers union, NYSUT, after it asked schoolchildren to offer advice to Barack Obama. Other letters suggest insulating schools against budget cuts, reducing class sizes, and providing bigger file cabinets for teachers. (Via Edwize)
