0140_Why to vote no on 3A and 3B_2016-08-8 –“The Latest Big Education Fad, Social-Emotional Learning [SEL], Is As Bad As It Sounds” By Jane Robbins–Townhall.com

At this moment, in Jefferson County Colorado, the school district administration, superintendent, all 5 current school board members (who are all union-supported), the education unions, and “education experts”, are pushing for us to cough up more money in November.  They are mistaken to think that this will help or fix declining education.  3A and 3B ask us to finance their failing policies — and to expand them.

On this November’s ballot, VOTE NO ON 3A AND 3B.
— More money to the schools will only make worse
the serious problems we have in education.

Today I got an email from Frank, a leader in the South Jeffco Tea Party.  In just a few sentences, he reported on the June 9th meeting they had.   You can read their brief summary of some of the things that will be on our November ballot.

One thing they didn’t mention at that meeting, but probably will at next month’s meeting, is a Mil Levy Override.  The Jeffco School Board will talk about and then take action on the Facilities Master Plan, the Bond, and the Mill Levy Override at this coming school board meeting Thursday (June 16).

Consider testifying before our school board on Thursday, June 16.  Let people know what our school board is planning to do.
