The Louisiana Purchase of BESE Continues
We now know that some of the best and most sincere supporters of public education have been removed from BESE and some extremely good educators have been barred from service for the benefit of our children. The billionaires now own BESE, but do they have any idea what to do with it?
I want to express my sincere appreciation to Dr Lottie Beebe and to Carolyn Hill for their support of our public schools and for fighting so passionately for democratic control of our public schools. Your efforts will never be forgotten. I only hope that you will continue the fight for our public schools in whatever capacity in which you choose to participate.
Thank you also to Lee Barrios, Kara Washington, Glynis Johnston, Johnny Fatheree, Jason France, and Mike Kreamer who all fought a good fight against the takeover of our public education system.
Lets all join together in supporting Mary Harris who is in a runoff in District 4 and Kathy Edmonson who is in a runoff in District 6. They will need our wholehearted support to succeed in maintaining a force for reason and democracy on BESE.
John Bel Edwards in his quest for governor is also a bright hope for the continued support of our public schools. Please support John Bel.
