Letter to the Editor on Taylorville School Board Elections



Posted March 28, 2023


Dear Editor:


I notice a few “Vote for Me” yard signs around posted by school board candidates. I ask you and hope that you will publish statements from the various candidates, new and those seeking reappointment, that explain their positions. 
We had a flurry of coverage when the new auditorium and gymnasium project was being considered but most of that discussion was about spending money. While the buildings are important, we also need to hear about what is being taught in our schools. Since our U.S. President has declared any citizen who voices an opinion at a school board meeting as a “terrorist” and becomes subject to examination by the FBI, we don’t hear much about the curriculum being taught.
Public news talks of teachers Grooming, that is convincing young students that they need to change their gender (and not allowing them to discuss it with their parents). There is a lot of discussion about teaching youngsters, first, second, third grade about sex. We hear of text books that if an adult had them, the adult would be arrested for possession of pornography. Some schools are teaching that the United States was started in 1619 by slaves and  whole populations have been abused for years. And then there is Critical Race Theory that drives a wedge between races and teaches hate.
I would like to see the candidates address these “modernizations of teaching” before we have to vote and your stations are the perfect venue for this discussion. It will be much easier to not elect someone than to fight with them for an entire term about things we don’t want our children exposed to.
And no, I don’t believe there is any reason the children, including high school, need to see a Drag Queen performance, especially in school.  Stick to the basics.
Dr. William Harryman
