You see, it matters not whether Troy LaRaviere is correct on education, but it is very important for him to be politically correct. More proof that's it's more about politics, teachers, and teachers unions, and not the education of the kids.
Yes, he is making a stand for what is right, and the school board has deliberately scheduled things to ensure he cannot attend. This is pure nonsense across the board.
If they do fire him, I hope he continues to wage his war outside of the system. The corruption has to come to an end, and Common Core has to go down in flames.
I thought it was extremely difficult to fire federal workers? Or is it only horrible liberal ones that are tough to fire
TheGrt, I wish you were right, but sadly in Chicago politics it’s Bat S Crazy vs. Super Duper Bat Sh Crazy. I did a quick google search and found out that LaRaviere supported the Super Duper Bat Sh Crazy guy, Jesús "Chuy" García . García was a pawn of the teachers union.
That being said, I still support his right to free speech. But sadly, he is not smart nor is he fighting corruption.
If he was smart he would go along to get along and take his pay check and be quiet. That would be the self serving move to CYA. However, he might actually care about the welfare of children and teachers. That is not a very good attitude to have and survive in the public education system that only cares about money and proper political indoctrination.
This perfectly illustrates the difference between authoritarianism and totalitarianism.
Authoritarianism = You will do as we say, whether you like it or not.
Totalitarianism = You will do as we say, and you WILL like it.
He is fighting evil. Pray he has all of his ducks in a row. They may come after him and try to trash his reputation. Hopefully his school has his back like he has theirs.

Then there’s the hypocrisy of those like you…
‘A gay hairstylist has refused to offer services to a woman simply because she supports traditional marriage!’
If the state where this happened didn't have anti-discrimination laws, then this unfortunately can still happen. Kim Davis is a sworn-in elected official who has sworn under oath to complete the duties of her position. Not anything like a hair stylist.
Snowblown. Apparently you didn’t read the article. You should, it’s quite illuminating. The state in question was New Mexico. And it DOES have anti-discrimination laws.
Also, non sworn-in positions include bakers, photographers, florists, etc. Doesn’t stop the lawsuits…
TheGrtDcptn… Thank you for the link. Great article.
(Should have said 'the articles. Just noticed those below. TY.)
Always like that "those like you" term. Used often in anti-semetic and racist rants. Careful your prejudice may be showing.
You sure know how to Forum Fight.
GJ. Did my work for me!

Doesn’t matter where they live, muslims are refusing service in the U.S, Canada, and the U.K.
‘So a lesbian walks into a Muslim barbershop, and asks for a businessmen’s haircut’
‘When Camara told his supervisor at a Costco branch in the Sunset Park neighborhood of the New York City borough that his muslim faith prohibited his working with pork, the boss obliged, changing Camara’s job. And now Camara is suing Costco for religious discrimination’
