So, this happened today:
A woman who ran for office on a platform of being pro-public schools.
For someone who was as accomplished an educator as she was, her move to a party that is embracing the dismantling of public education is rather sadistically ironic. She recently retweeted a pro-school choice blurb from Corey DeAngelis, well-known for being a Betsy DeVos hired hand to promote privatization.
Cecil Brockman, a Democratic representative from Guilford was quoted as saying he does not “blame her a bit.”
Pushback for not showing up to vote on an important issue? Interesting that it take just that to switch someone who at one time was called the “darling of the progressives.”
From that same (rather conservative) report, Cotham had been quoted as saying on record and staunchly being on a certain side of issues that make one scratch his head at the switch to another party.
She just joined a party that is pushing a six-week limit on abortions, pushing legislation that targets LGBTQ people, giving more tax cuts to the wealthy and corporations, and is about to steer even more money to unproven charters and opaque voucher schemes.
I wonder what the people at East Mecklenburg and Independence High Schools think of what their former administrator is helping to do to their schools.
One thought on “This Former Public School TOY & Administrator And Now Representative Just Switched Parties To Ensure More Money Is Taken From Public Schools”
