Update On Cox Mills HS “TownHall”

Several weeks ago, I reported on a “townhall” that was held at Cox Mills High in Cabarrus county. That “townhall” included political candidates, one of which made a political speech. That candidate is Earle Schecter, the NY transplant running as a Democrat against incumbent Larry Pittman. State Superintendent and CCSSO President, June Atkinson, was also present but Rep. Larry Pittman confirmed to me that he was not informed of this event. I asked the question, was this a Democrat campaign event or a townhall?

The answer is a bit of both.

I’ve received official word from both Cabarrus County Schools AND the Cabarrus Democrat Party. Let’s run this down in order. Continue reading

Atkinson Accuses Common Core Opposition Of “Bearing False Witness”

This past Wednesday, an attempt at a town hall for “Friends of Education” was held at Cox Mills High School in Cabarrus County. In the previous article, I touched on the comments made by Dr. Atkinson and said I would follow-up with more in another article. This is that article. For more details read: Town Hall Or Campaign Event?

Here’s a brief summary to bring readers up to speed:

Citizens who attended reported to me that in addition to a 15 minute speech by NC State Superintendent Dr. Atkinson followed by a short question and answer session, the event was begun with a campaign speech by Democrat Earle Schecter. Mr. Schecter made claims directly attacking his opponent Rep. Larry Pittman. This political speech identifying and attacking his opponent arguably qualify this “town hall” a campaign event. The public was notified of this “town hall” in the local online paper the day before, yet Democrats in the area were aware as early as April 5th. No Republican candidates were present or invited.

I also gave a quick look at a few of the comments made by Dr. Atkinson. This is where we pick up. The Independent Tribune has an article up, but it misses quite a bit of what was reported to me by attendees and instead, goes mostly with the teacher pay issue. Read it here, I’ll be referencing it later on. Continue reading
