A middle school in the Charlotte Mecklenburg school system distributed two flyers to parents this past week. One was an informational flyer on a sales tax referendum for the county, the other was information on voting. Several parents reached out to me and sent me copies of the flyers. See the flyers here.
These are the same flyers that were objected to by County Commissioner Bill James that this constituted political activism by the school. I covered that story and I agree with that assessment. These flyers, whether created by an outside entity or not, were distributed by official channels and in many cases on school property. That’s using tax dollars for political advocacy purposes.

More fliers and activism in North Carolina schools. This time it’s not an NCAE/Organize2020 protest flier that went home in the backpacks of our children. This time it is Charlotte Mecklenburg schools and a slanted flier about a proposed sales tax hike. Charlotte Observer has a write up here, which of course doesn’t ask questions about the validity of the content of the flier.
“CMS spokeswoman Kathryn Block told the Observer the document “was developed as an informational document only.”

Really? Who developed it and why is the informational document not providing where you drew your information from?

While the intent to promote the school’s best interests is clear, what is also clear is the bias.

Just what does the NCAE do with teacher dues? Join ‘days of action’ with far Left groups who get media attention by getting arrested maybe? This letter from the NCAE below looks like political activity, not teacher advocacy. In fact, that’s exactly what it is only Larry calls it “education activism”.
Workshops and skills training? Like what? Chanting and holding signs? Learning how to alienate more and more parents with vitriolic antics?
Hey, at least this time they aren’t pulling a day of action in our schools right? Shocked they sent this instead of their protest arm, Organize2020. Continue reading
Remember that skewed, unscientific “survey” from UNCW? Well, if at first you don’t succeed with your push poll survey, try and try again. This time, the NCAE is pushing it. This one is clearly geared towards teachers, judging by the questions. It’s distribution method is about as sound as the first one by Imig and Smith.
The image below is via Facebook, which is of course where scientific surveys start, right? Continue reading
