We need a community to come together and discuss these issues, but it needs to be a discussion among our county’s citizens, parents and children. We do not need more government and we certainly do not need outside progressive activists instructing our communities on how to live, work and get along with each other. If we work together, we can do it ourselves. I urge everyone to read this petition, see it for what it is, reject it and then tell the school board that you oppose the notion of progressive authoritarianism with respect to your children’s education and nurturing. Then make a commitment to get involved and make a difference in your student’s lives and schools.
