Past Musings from The Lady

NC State Superintendent and President of the CCSSO Dr. June Atkinson recently spent time speaking to the Carteret County Democrat party. Atkinson assaulted the current legislature for teacher pay while conveniently leaving out the role both she and former Governor Perdue played in freezing teacher pay in the first place.
Despite having the highest graduation rate in the history of the state, North Carolina’s public education system needs support to survive the recent wave of changes enacted by the General Assembly, State Superintendent of Public Instruction June Atkinson said on Saturday to county Democrats.

My latest went up at Da Tech Guy: Re: About Those Abuse Cases
On Monday, DaTechGuy wrote about the sexual abuse cases taking place in schools as highlighted by Stacy McCain:
Lately Stacy McCain has been doing a large series on sexual criminals. Yesterday he focused on Teachers
If you pay attention to the news, it’s hard to avoid the conclusion that America’s public schools are staffed by sex-crazed perverts
It’s not his first dive into these waters but this time Glenn Reynolds linked with the line:
Obviously, we need to end mandatory celibacy and let high school teachers marry.

My weekly column at Da Tech Guy is up here: A Primer On The Left In NC (PT III)
In Part II of A Primer on the Left in NC, we looked at the leader of the “grassroots” Moral Monday movement, Reverend William Barber. This week, it’s important to learn about the start of Moral Monday and their tactics because, as I predicted, it’s spreading. Just this past week, Barber met with various unnamed activists from 12 other states with the intent to help organize Moral Monday’s elsewhere. One of the attendees was Democratic state Sen. Hank Sanders of Alabama. I view this as the reaction of the organized Left realizing how much power is held by the individual states. Too many for the comfort of the Left are under Republican leadership. Continue reading
First, an obligatory I told you so.
From the Atlanta Progressive News, emphasis added:
(APN) ATLANTA — Since August 19, 2013, a “Moral Monday” movement has been building in Georgia to take back our State government from the interests of corporations and wealthy people. The Moral Monday Georgia Coalition, which includes people of faith and citizens of Georgia, has been meeting every two weeks to plan for progressive actions during the 2014 Legislative Session.
