  1. “Brown-Taylor invoked the names of Michael Brown”

    The glorification of criminals and wanton ignorance over the actual facts of cases like his and Trayvon Martin’s are matters of religious adherence to the left. It’s bizarre, and frankly sad to see. It should also be a red flag against taking the advice of an adherent when it comes to topics of education. This is not a person connecting with reality.

  2. Also, the staff at the ap likes to insist they are balanced, but they sure give a lot more detail about what the leftwing nutjobs say at these meetings than they did for the parents trying to keep racists and child groomers out of education. Might be the writer they have assigned to the beat or a leadership issue, but it doesn’t serve the public fairly.

  3. Skyler is definitely biased. Read the headline to this article. “Parents speak out against book banning.” I believe there were parents there expressing both sides but the headlines are what set the tone for the article. Disappointing. We know which side of the issue the writer is on.

  4. With Austin Rhodes’ family connection to the schools keeping him silent on school board issues there’s really no major local voice willing to highlight the boards willful negligence on these issues. It’s deeply unfortunate for Columbia County.

  5. As I go door to door campaigning, I find that nearly everyone opposes critical race theory and all its many acronyms, but the School Board and Administration chose to remain silent and wait for a state policy. This is unfortunate for our children that no one was willing to be proactive in a fight that should have started many years ago to protect our children. I hope you will join me in voting out the incumbents.
