In bitterly divided election in Southlake, TX, opponents of anti-racism education win big
WARNING: NBC News Link

quote:

SOUTHLAKE, Texas — Nine months after officials in the affluent Carroll Independent School District introduced a proposal to combat racial and cultural intolerance in schools, voters delivered a resounding victory Saturday to a slate of school board and City Council candidates who opposed the plan.

In an unusually bitter campaign that echoed a growing national divide over how to address issues of race, gender and sexuality in schools, candidates in the city of Southlake were split between two camps: those who supported new diversity and inclusion training requirements for Carroll students and teachers and those backed by a political action committee that was formed last year to defeat the plan.

quote:

On one side, progressives argued that curriculum and disciplinary changes were needed to make all children feel safe and welcome in Carroll, a mostly white but quickly diversifying school district. On the other, conservatives in Southlake rejected the school diversity plan as an effort to indoctrinate students with a far-left ideology that, according to some, would institutionalize discrimination against white children and those with conservative Christian values.

Candidates and voters on both sides described the election as a "fork in the road" for Southlake, a wealthy suburb 30 miles northwest of Dallas. "So goes Southlake," a local conservative commentator warned in the weeks leading up to the election, "so goes the rest of America."

In the end, the contest was not close. Candidates backed by the conservative Southlake Families PAC, which has raised more than $200,000 since last summer, won every race by about 70 percent to 30 percent, including those for two school board positions, two City Council seats and mayor. More than 9,000 voters cast ballots, three times as many as in similar contests in the past.

School boards, public utility boards, zoning boards, etc.,

The left has had free reign in these areas and has used them to launch into bigger things.

It's time to take control of these local areas.

Author is lying. Any diversity in Southlake is from Indian and Asian folks coming in with high paying jobs and theyre buying the same million dollar houses as the white people. The darker skin colored minorities are there for athletics and that’s not the “increasing diversity” that they would be seeing at Carroll HS. It’s a very misleading statement by the author of the article

So a PAC was only involved on one side? Where did the money come from for the other side?

Home of Kenny Trill.

Factoid: we kicked their arses in the 1990 3A semifinal game.

Then DFW swallowed them up: we still 3A.

Lol. No way that had a chance of passing in Southlake. If it is, in fact, “quickly diversifying”, all minorities added to the community will still have a household income of six figures.

This happened somewhere else recently regarding masks and opening schools. The parents got together, fired the school board had new elections and opened the schools.

That says it all.

The 21st Century 'Racist' accusation is akin to the 17th Century 'Witch' accusation.
