The website bizzyblog.com points out that a daily local newspaper, in this case the one in Cincinnati, is all in a tizzy because local school boards are being taken over by …GASP…conservatives.
“Though this is a local story, I believe it deserves wider attention. That’s because it likely reflects an attitude frequently found in local media around the nation.
“A January 21 story at the Cincinnati Enquirer worried that fiscally conservative candidates who have begun winning local school board elections ‘may be philosophically opposed to the way public schools have been traditionally operated and funded’ – as if that’s automatically a bad thing. Here’s some context the Enquirer’s Michael D. Clark ‘somehow’ forgot to include: ‘40% of Ohioans need remedial math or English in college.’ Gee, maybe ‘the way public schools have been traditionally operated and funded’ isn’t working. Clark also let a former local school board president engage in an unhinged rant about ‘those that have a goal to destroy public education’.”
Conservatives winning school board seats and actually assuming control upset the nice, cozy arrangement the liberal intelligentsia has to tax and spend ad nauseum. When the apple cart is upset, the liberals go into a child-like tantrum.
Could it happen or has it happened in your school district? It has in Franklin.
BTW, the school board member referred to in these blogs decided not to run for re-election.
