Douglas County Board of Education Receives Schooled by Audience

It was a further wild 7 days in Douglas County.  During a March 22 meeting that ran almost eight hours and failed to conclude until finally the early part of March 23, the Douglas County Board of Instruction, in the most significant surprise considering the fact that the solar rose in the east, voted to retain the services of the controversial Erin Kane to provide as superintendent for the Douglas County College District. Kane will exchange Corey Sensible, who was fired on February 4 by the four-member conservative bloc of Mike Peterson, Kaylee Winegar, Becky Myers and Christy Williams elected in November 2021.

But that wasn’t all: The college board also approved incorporating a different lawyer to its legal staff, also-controversial former Colorado Secretary of Condition Scott Gessler. That workforce is combating a lawsuit filed by Douglas County resident Robert Marshall that prices the board with violating open up-meeting policies in firing Wise…and could before long face lawsuits from Clever himself.

In their reviews on the Westword Fb write-up of the latest Douglas County moves, audience go on to grade the university board…and the county alone. Says James:

The soap opera in no way finishes.

Provides Boyd:

Anything but the children. Pathetic posturing.

Make me an present, this impartial is attempting to bounce out of the place. Are you an affluent Karen and Chad fam who hates progress and loves the white Jesus with blue eyes and bleach blonde hair who is indignant and deplores little ones in public educational facilities? Do you appreciate wide open prepared green areas but can not tolerate an open up brain and development? Have I received a household for you!!!

Responds Jeanne:

Liberals have been jogging for Dougco for above five many years. The board flips and now this new board is accountable for the troubles they were being supplied? You can market your house for around inquiring price tag Anywhere in this state and discover your exact perceived challenges Any where, even in the most bluest counties. The new board did not ban the America flag or free of charge speech at conferences. The new boards folks will not put on T-shirts or make memes defaming the board. People are the liberals.

Counters James

My desire is that the 4 wingnuts on the board, along with their lawyers, wind up in Gitmo. I very absolutely sure my prayers will never be answered there, so I’m proposing that we reinstate corporal punishment in the educational institutions. But not for college students: for faculty board users. I volunteer to administer the punishment.

Concluders Jack:

I really do not even like to travel thru Douglas-freakin’-County… there is anything in the h2o down there. Not great!
