UPDATE: Welcome Carolina Plott Hound Readers! A concerned citizen brought me a lesson from a 7th grade middle school class recently. It was a lesson on Columbus Day and whether or not it should really be called “Genocide Day” … Continue reading →
The Guilford County School district has spent $357,448.60 on an “African-American Males Symposium” this Summer. The costs were paid for by a portion of the $1.6 million in Race To The Top funds given to the district, except for the catering. The catering bill came from local funds and totaled around $8,779.90. Stipends were given to teachers to attend the two-day event in the amount of $100 per day. Those stipends represented the bulk of the cost of the event at $264,500.

Over the last 6 months, I’ve attempted to track a protest group named Aim Higher NC. Little public information is available, as the NC Secretary of State only has a name reservation on file for them. Aim Higher has refused to name who funds and runs them. I inquired with NCAE and Organize2020, both said they were not behind the group, which may be technically true, but they are indeed supplying help and resources to Aim Higher. So is Progress NC – in fact, after looking at a recent email from Aim Higher, Progress NC appears to be very involved. Related Read:@AimHigherNC Still A Mystery

Much of Occupy Monday’s complaints have been based on driving a select few narratives. One of the big ones, teacher pay, was just busted. Wonder how this will impact former Kay Hagan staffer Chris Sgro’s activism with very Left leaning Equality North Carolina and in his support of Occupy Monday?
Shocker, former Hagan staffer is all about Far Left Moral Monday. http://t.co/szfp3A4WI4 #ncsen @ThomTillis — LL1885 – A.P. Dillon (@LadyLiberty1885) July 30, 2014
Reminder: “Due to the political nature of our work, contributions to Equality NC are not tax-deductible.”
