CMS Middle School Distributes Sales Tax Referendum And Voting Info Flyers At Open House

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.

  1. Reblogged this on Femininican and commented:
    Something tells me this is not an isolated incident. Not isolated to that school, that county, or that state.
    I would not be at all surprised if it was discovered that this sort of thing is actually a widespread occurance.
