From Roberta’s letter:  “All of this is not BECAUSE Trump was elected, but his election has REVEALED what already existed.  The hatred and anti-Americanism was already there, . . . ”

The hateful supplemental material (Educator Resources) — recently recommended by Superintendent Jason Glass, for K-12 teachers in Jefferson County (Colorado) Public Schools —  is only an expansion of what public school children have been fed for years (this includes the teaching of AP U.S. History in recent years).

At the end of this blog post, is   1)  how to write and send letters to the editor; and 2) other blogs on this site, that talk about the superintendent’s new controversial resource list and curriculumNote:  The School Board of Education is supposed to decide on curriculum to be used in the classes — not the superintendent3)  list of blogs on this site about the AP U.S. History mess.

Trump Era Chaos”
Letter by Roberta Sutton
_____________________________________________________

We’ve all noticed what chaos has emerged since Donald Trump’s election.

Right away there was a march of women against Trump who were wearing “Vagina Hats.”  There has been the surfacing of Antifa with their masked assailants, and their destruction and mayhem in Berkeley.  The NFL players have complaints about our police, and because of that, they  refuse to honor our nation and its flag and anthem.  All of them “attack” the President.

All of this is not BECAUSE Trump was elected, but his election has REVEALED what already existed.  The hatred and anti-Americanism was already there, but it was stirred up and brought to the fore because someone with a different belief than theirs was in charge—and Trump was going to be leading the nation in a different direction—one they didn’t agree with.

0260_Is Jeffco committed to teaching “white guilt” in our K-12 classrooms? (by Kim Lawrence Gilmartin)_

See previous blog (0259) which is a companion to this blog – about John Newkirk’s talk about his recent op-ed which has caused a rabid stir among the Left and their followers.

An October 17, 2017 post by Kim Lawrence Gilmartin

During John Newkirk’s presentation this morning, he told of an October 16, 2017 post by Kim Lawrence Gilmartin.  See Blog Post 0259 for companion piece.

Her post can be read in a printable pdf on this site, is liked here to her post, and can be read below:

Is Jeffco committed to teaching “white guilt” in our K-12 classrooms?

Having grown up in our post-60s world, I have admired the words of Martin Luther King, who professed his “dream,” that we should all be judged by something other than the color of our skin. Specifically, MLK spoke to a group of civil rights marchers in DC: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Of course he was right, which is easy for most of us to recognize today in retrospect. Skin color should have absolutely zero bearing on the world we live in.

And so it’s worth asking another question of my fellow citizens in Jeffco Colorado: Did you know that our new Jefferson County Schools Superintendent, Jason Glass, has taken a stance that advocates Jeffco schools should teach our kids about “white privilege?” In fact, Glass believes our children need to know the “importance of examining their whiteness: It’s impossible to see the privilege and dominance associated with white racial identity without acknowledging that whiteness.” That’s verbatim from the article “Why Talk About Whiteness” which Glass recommended in a list of “educator resources” he sent to EVERY teacher in our school system. He provided these “resources” for use in our classrooms to “address” hate and racism in America. And we are paying Glass over $1,000,000 in tax dollars over the next three years for this kind of “leadership.” Most people are not aware of this; but I think you should be.

This morning John Newkirk (former secretary of the Jeffco Board of Education) attended the High Country Republican Club breakfast (see Blog 0254).  He said that he has had the most vile negative responses to his recent opinion editorial — more irrational and raging responses than for any other of his articles over the past 2 years.   He says he has written many controversial articles before; but he must have hit a nerve!

Let the superintendent hear from you, and send in a letter to the editor of the Canyon Courier, or other papers, letting them know you appreciate John’s opinion editorialhttp://www.canyoncourier.com/content/letter-editor

John Newkirk’s presentation was excellent this morning, which was no surprise.  He spoke about the arrogant disregard for rules that our Superintendent Glass has displayed.  Read Superintendent Glass’ letter.

See Blog 0257 for 2017-08 message to jeffco schs on charlottesville va on this subject and comments.  These letters were sent to all legislators, and Representative Tim Leonard forwarded the document to me.  The second letter from Superintendent Glass has his recommended Charlottesville Educator Resource Guide, for new K-12 curriculum, which went to all teachers in the school district.

0002_Feb. 8, 2014 – Mayhem caused by Union, Cindy Stevenson and Democrat School Board members

November 7, 2013, Superintendent Cindy Stevenson
announces she will be leaving her position as superintendent
June 30, 2014.

YouTube – On Nov. 7, 2013, Cindy Stevenson announces ahead of time that she is retiring.  The announcer in the video below gives the information that she said her last day would be June 30, 2014.

The above tearful event, on November 7, 2013, (2 days after the election of the 3 new board members) is a sight familiar to people who have attended Jeffco Board of Education meetings over the years when Cindy Stevenson was superintendent.  Stevenson has displayed a lot of emotional tears during board meetings.

Then Superintendent Stevenson asked to be relieved of her commitment
to stay on until the end of June – leaving almost 5 months early.
She had another job.

There was a school board meeting February 8, 2014.  Among other things that the board members had wanted to accomplish at that meeting, was settling the separation pay agreement that Stevenson requested take place.   She wanted to leave almost 5 months before she had agreed to stay.  She would instead abruptly leave the school district children, and leave the school board with the task of replacing her over four months before they expected.  This caused them to turn much of their focus off other important end-of-the-school-year things, and school district matters.

But Stevenson and the democrats on the school board, in concert with the PTA and the unions, wanted to accomplish something much greater.   They were beginning their war to win a recall in early November of the following year.  They orchestrated a mob situation, and forced the meeting to end after Stevenson made her disingenuous, tearful scene.
