This So-Called Post-Post-Racial Life

To My Fellow Hamilton County, IN Residents:

As you know, our country is under attack by right wing extremists who are hellbent on convincing us that our President cannot be trusted and is a Facist-Communist-Socialist, etc. These same folks are now tearing down our President by way of our public schools.  This Tuesday President Obama plans to address students across the country on what is considered the official first day back to school. In this historical address, President Obama is to speak on the importance of good grades, not to drop out and to encourage the setting of short and long-term goals.

Instead of allowing our students in Hamilton County to listen to this important message and participate in this historic moment, school officials are either blocking the address altogether or taping it for review and possible edited re-broadcast later.

Below are some of the school systems that have made it public that they are not allowing the live broadcast of President Obama’s address.  Please contact the school in your area and let them know that this is unacceptable.  Instead of teaching our students the values that they need to be productive citizens, we’re teaching them that they can’t trust our President enough to hear him out.

Noblesville

Carmel-Clay
Dr. Barbara Underwood, Superintendent

Thanks for all of your support.  I can only hope that these schools reconsider their partisan stances.

Sincerely,

Keith Clock, Chair
Hamilton County Democratic Party

Do you know what your local school system is doing with regard to this issue?

  2. I just read that, Nordette. Well done. I emailed my school superintendent, as well as my kids’ principal and both of their teachers. We will see what the response will be.
