To the editor:
Another chaotic confrontation took place at the Hooksett Town Meeting on Saturday. On both sides good folks were confronted with the reality that the school budget is choking taxpayers. Thanks to Steve MacDonald's excellent granite Grok article on 2/4, citizens of NH were treated to an accurate picture. Cutting the school budget consumes most tax revenue, not only in in New Hampshire, but throughout the nation.
Since the COVID lockdown of schools, parents got a taste of what their children are exposed to in public schools. Most good folks do not appreciate tax-dollar's wasted on the globalist UNESCO/U.S. Department of Education perversions of true education such as gender studies, CRT and DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion), that have nothing to do with true education. In all fairness, would you the reader like to teach all these divisive Marxist programs to innocent children under the the threat, so to speak of taking the highway or big brothers way?
What is true education? Noah Webster draws a complete picture of true education in his 1828 dictionary:
The bringing up, as of a child, instruction; formation of manners, education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations. "
Do you see anything in the definition that includes LBGTQ+ , CRT or DEI ? Perhaps more revealing: ask yourself, do you think all of the good qualities of discipline, correct of temper and manners are being taught to reinforce the upbringing of your children?
Hooksett is a town with approximately 9 or 10,000 people that let a small minority of voters represent their views. Is this the type of apathy that blindly trusts the so-called experts a product of public education? Too many Federal Bureaucrats are forcing un-American DEA/UNESCO globalist education on your children. Many of these jobs need to be cut first. The John Birch Society legislative alert demands the "defunding Public Schools." Those who say this is too extreme, consider how the Marxist revolution is demanding defund the police.
