Tonight PWCPS Board member Don Richardson held a town hall meeting at Westgate Elementary School to discuss the upcoming school budget and other plans of the School Board (topics I’ll cover in some detail later). What struck me first though was his answer on whether there’s been any thought to achieving some modest cost savings that could be used to pay for teachers by cutting the County’s Multicultural Department. Richardson’s rather surprising answer was that while he was in favor of cutting this department, there aren’t enough votes on the Board to do so.
I’ve been covering for some time the utterly outrageous waste of taxpayer dollars this department has been responsible for as it pursues a clear agenda of radicalizing teachers to indoctrinate students with an agenda of perversion, anti-Americanism, and radical leftist dogma. I’ve managed to embarrass the School Board to the point it dictated that a host of outrageous links on the county website be taken down and for the department to be relegated to “program” status. Still the radicals soldier on, spending taxpayer dollars to promote an agenda that would be an anathema to the vast majority of parents in the county, and we’re still funding it while the School Board pines about having insufficient funds for teachers.
Richardson was too diplomatic to name names here, but we should know just whom among our elected representatives want to continue funding this disaster instead of using those funds to marginally reduce class sizes. What are the member’s individual positions on this? Who on the school board thinks that it’s more important to continue funding leftist political indoctrination campaigns than to deliver a quality education for our children with more classroom instructors?
You might want to ask your elected representative whether they’d vote to cut this program and use those funds for teachers. Apparently Don Richardson and Lisa Bell are in favor of eliminating that department, or “program” as it’s now called. I’d be interested in seeing within the comments how other members respond to your questions on this.
