#SB480 Would Block Politicking In Schools. NCAE and Progress NC’s ‘AimHigher’ Hardest Hit?

Senate bill 480 seeks to limit the political activity of school officials, administrators and teachers on school campuses.  News and Record reported:

Senate Bill 480 is co-sponsored Wells and Sens. Trudy Wade (R-Guilford) and Andrew Brock (R-Davie).

The bill seeks to prevent any employee of a local, regional or charter school board from:

• Actively participating in managing a political campaign, campaign for political office, or otherwise engaging in political activity while on duty or during working hours.

• Using the authority of their position, public funds, supplies, equipment or vehicles to support or oppose any candidate, party or issue in an election involving candidates for office or party nominations or to affect an election’s result.

• Using public funds, supplies, equipment or vehicles for partisan purposes, political purposes or to engage in advocating for or against issues of local, state or federal policy.

“Equipment” would include information such as mailing addresses, email addresses and phone numbers gathered or maintained by the school. Such information could no longer be used to rally parents for ballot issues, school funding or other political causes

Guilford County Commissioner Jeff Phillips said it’s the First Amendment right of all citizens to engage in political activity. That includes school employees, he said.

But those who work for school systems that get taxpayer dollars should “exercise some restraint” while on the job and refrain from using public resources in political campaigns, Phillips said.

“I have heard of a lot of citizens, many of whom have children who attend Guilford County schools, who receive emails and other types of communication that are intended to persuade parents to vote a certain way on a certain issue,” Phillips said

Shorter: Stop pushing politically driven items and protests at schools on the public dime.

How DARE the NCGA make sure all public employees follow the same political rules at work?

WALK IN ORGANIZE 2020Sadly, this bill seems to be needed given the increasing activity of groups like the NCAE, the NCAE’s Organize 2020 and Progress NC’s education protest group, ‘Aim Higher Now’.

This has been going on for years now.

The News and Record continued:

Todd Warren, a Spanish teacher at Guilford Elementary School, said the bill is “a solution in search of a problem.”

“I don’t think that anything that Guilford County Schools does now is political campaigning,” Warren said. “What they have done is messages that are education campaigns, but they’re not advocating for anything.”

What the News and Record fails to tell you is that Todd Warren isn’t just some ‘Spanish teacher’.

Warren is a far left socialist, Moral Monday Arrestee, Occupying kinda guy. He is also one of the leaders of the NCAE’s protest arm, “Organize 2020”.
