The MEA has no power or authority to recall public
officials, including “local school board members who seek to save money by
hiring private contractors to do non-instructional work like prepare meals,
drive buses and clean the schools.”
The power to recall school board members lies solely in the
hands of a district’s voters.
Yes, MEA and its minions may push for, and even organize
recall efforts. But let’s not
forget that any school board member ousted in a recall election is ousted by
the district’s voting public. That
is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
What do I think about this?
Well, it is important for communities to be well informed
about what is going on in their midst.
That’s what I think. Well-informed
communities are poised to make quality decisions on matters like recall and
Propaganda of the sort dispensed by organizations like the
MEA, the Mackinac Center and any and all of a jillion other special interest
organizations often contains kernels of factual truth. But because of its bias that propaganda
seldom, if ever, is accurately informative. Trouble is, few local news organizations will dig for the
truth either, preferring, instead, to “stand neutral” by quoting the special
interest mouthpieces on various sides of any given question. So from those media all you really get
is a synopsis or sampling of propaganda being dispensed.
Voters are advised in all cases to tune up their BS
detection gear (brains) in considering issues of importance to their
communities, counties, state or nation.
And from there, they should make their own, independent decisions.
