Another “culture of voting” for public school lackeys

Pratt on TexasA fine citizen residing in Grapevine-Colleyville school district noticed the district had passed a resolution for the Leftwing organizing fad called “culture of voting” and because the language of the resolution was vague and called on district to promote “third-party” tools that support and opposed candidates, he, Steve Waltens, submitted a proper open records request for all emails and the like which involved this effort.

It is no surprise what the school district did next. It claimed almost 19,000 emails were potentially responsive to his request, which was quite narrow actually, and told him it would cost the good citizens of the district $15,012.80 if they wanted to see the supposedly public records.

Waltens had said he didn’t have to have copies and would be happy to inspect on-site but they insisted on the fifteen grand.

Waltens then explained he was going to the Attorney General regarding the outrageous obstruction of viewing taxpayer owned, public records and magically, GCISD dropped the estimated price from fifteen grand to only $375.

Waltens then explained he was going to the Attorney General regarding the outrageous obstruction of viewing taxpayer owned, public records and magically, GCISD dropped the estimated price from fifteen grand to only $375. Still too high in my book but it demonstrates what liars and cheats these folk are.

“A partial release of records requested by Waltens already revealed that GCISD’s superintendent made a presentation to staff that encouraged them to use two websites for voting research. Both websites listed legislative endorsements,” the Texas Scorecard reported. That is illegal.

I’m tired of being told I hate teachers for simply expecting government schools to follow the law, both in spirit and in detail, so I’ll say this: If you are stupid enough to believe that many school districts and administrators don’t play fast and loose with the law and our money then, you are too stupid to vote so stay home. How’s that for a “culture of voting?”

What do you think?...
