When you want to get the scoop of what's really happening with parents, students, and education in North Carolina, A.P.'s reporting is the way to go. And we're not talking about the Associated Press.
A.P. Dillon is one of the few reporters out there actually doing investigative reporting. Rather than offer cable new's nagging and left-leaning editorializing, or the legacy print media's incurious 30,000-foot views, Dillon gives the "who, what, where, and when" of a story, leaving the why up to you, the reader.
In case you missed it, on Friday we shared with you what A.P. Dillon had to say about our upcoming School Board Bootcamps:
"Over the past two years, parents have become more involved in the education of their children than ever before.
Frustrated by mask mandates, school closures, learning loss, inappropriate materials, and the permeation of Critical Race Theory, parents took to protesting their local school boards in record numbers.
Protesting parents also found themselves targeted by the National School Boards Association, an organization that sent a letter to President Biden comparing parents to domestic terrorists.
To add insult to injury that letter would be used by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to direct the FBI to investigate moms and dads across the country, including applying a counterterrorism threat tag to anyone that crossed their path.
Two upcoming training events have been designed to help parents regain local control by giving them the tools they need to get elected to their local school board."
On February 9th and 10th, we are proud to be partnering with Family Research Council Action to host these two free School Board Bootcamps in Raleigh and Mooresville.
The School Board Bootcamps are for everyone! Even if you’re not a candidate, if you just want to get good school board members elected, these events are for you!
The free events are designed to educate and equip you to make a difference in your local school board. If you feel a passion to run for school board or to elect a slate of school board members who share your values, then we want to invite you to these two free events.
