From, an October 6, News & Observer editorial commenting on the Johnston County Commissioners decision to have the school board ban critical race theory before receiving county dollars:
School boards should have the autonomy to decide what’s best for our schools and our children. The Johnston County school board failed to defend that autonomy, but it never should have been compromised in the first place. County leaders don’t get to strong-arm school boards, or dictate what or how kids learn. Their only job is to bankroll it, no strings attached. Politicizing that process is a dangerous game.
What can you say?
The highchairs are empty. The safety cups and silverware have been hurled at the wall.
This is progressivism – and no one should stand in their way.
