I just received a robo-call from the Douglas County Education Alliance. It stated that they want my opinion on education in Douglas County. After asking a lengthy question, which outlined all the “wonderful” things the current board has introduced to Douglas County Schools, they asked me to press 1 if I support the actions of the current board, 2 if I opposed the actions, and 3 if it was too soon to tell. I pressed 2, but evidently, they didn’t like that answer because they asked the question again. I pressed 2 again. Finally after the fourth time, they hung up on me.
Clearly, those outsiders who are pouring money into one side of the critical issues our schools face didn’t want my opinion, once learning that I can see through their agenda to destroy equal, free, public education for all.
I urge your readers to see the Strong Schools Coalition website at strongschoolscoalition.org. This group is not relying on outside funds, so they don’t have the money for robo-calls. But responsible citizens should research all sides. Once on the website, be sure to click on the link to “parent survey” to see what parents and teachers really think about what’s going on in our district.
