This week’s “The Democratic Voice” podcast is about the growing outrage at school board meetings.

La Crosse County Democratic Party Chair William Garcia talks with me about why school board meetings across Wisconsin, including here in the area, are becoming hotbeds for outrage, arguments … and headlines.

Garcia’s has discussed this previously. It’s about the idea that there is a concretive effort by conservatives to manufacture outrage over things like masks and critical race theory at local school boards to prolong divisive ideas, which don’t play well with a majority of people but might help win local elections, where only a small number of people vote.

New podcasts drop every Monday and can be found wherever you download podcasts or on the WIZM website here.

    You are so right. The people of Loudon County , Virginia are pushing back big time and they are educated.
    Citizens across this country are pushing back. The Republican candidate for governor has stressed that all need a good education. An African American group has for the for first time endorsed a Republican candidate for governor.
    Terry McCauliffe, the Democrat told the truth: parents have no right to tell school boards what their children should learn. The statement sums up how the progressives and left feel.
    Minorities in New York are begging for more charter schools; the opposition— Democrats and the Unions. Same story in a lot of places.
    We need these children to learn how to write, read and. Do math highly proficiently. The barrrier: the Democratic Party and the unions.
