DCSD no place for radical agenda

Referring to Alex Dewind’s Jan. 24 online article “Douglas County teacher on leave following Twitter post,” most of us who follow the news are aware of Michelle Grissom, a seventh-grade social studies teacher who described a Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky student as training to be part of the “Hitler Youth.” A vile Twitter post that went viral, joining a social media mob falsely accusing students wearing “Make America Great Again” caps of harassing a Native American at a DC March of Life.

Those of us who are property owners are also receiving our annual property tax bill increased by the 5A mill levy override and the 5B bond issue that in addition to funding maintenance increased teacher salaries. A major argument for the bill was to decrease the teacher pay disparity between Douglas County and Cherry Creek, the second highest average teacher salary district in the state. Well guess what? We shouldn’t be afraid of losing teachers as long as we have teachers like Ms. Grissom to offer Cherry Creek, and if we had an accountable school board, there are probably a host of socialist teachers we would be better off unloading.

Ms. Grissom was on the union’s liberal left executive board, where she felt very comfortable in this school district and secure in her position pushing her radical agenda against American values — polarizing, and to many, un-American.
