Frisco ISD Superintendent Comes Unglued After Incumbent Loss
The walls are closing in.
Frisco ISD is ground zero for ‘Schools Gone Wild’ in Texas.
Last year, a former trustee proclaimed “this is our meeting” when parents expressed concern about thousands of children being brutally terrorized by the virus cultists.
On April 29th, Current Revolt covered an epic fight filmed in the cafeteria of a Frisco ISD high school. The coverage was lauded, with many people saying, “das on my mamma.”
Later, the husband of a Frisco ISD principal was arrested for distributing some kinky fetish material in a Frisco ISD… *checks notes*… in an elementary school?
Despite one insane event after another, Frisco ISD Superintendent, Dr. Mike Waldrip doubled down and went to Twitter to issue a blatant endorsement of the 2 school board incumbents on the ballot.
Well, on May 7th, voters selected the anti-CRT, anti-porn candidates in 2 out of 3 school board places, with only 1 incumbent barely edging out a victory.
Then, just days later, video emerged showing Frisco ISD students taking over high school and destroying the building. Enough carnage took place to cancel the final few days of school. It also gained the attention of epic State Representative and student-advocate Jared Patterson, who is both a hero and man of the people.
Later that day, Waldrip lashed out in a public letter. In the letter, Waldrip attacked the citizens as well as anti-porn activist Jared Patterson.
I am writing to address the ongoing concern expressed by some parents and community members regarding sexually explicit library books. I know some of you have seen information on this topic in news reports, on social media, or from politicians. I want you to hear directly from me where the District stands and how we have been working to address this important issue.
Our Board, leadership team, and librarians have consistently expressed that we are unequivocally committed to ensuring our libraries do not contain sexually inappropriate materials. Since the beginning of the school year, we have identified and removed five titles from high school libraries, one title from middle school libraries, and no titles from elementary school libraries for containing inappropriate sexual content. Four additional titles from high school libraries are currently under review.
There are hundreds of bizarre and raunchy books in every school district the size of Frisco ISD.
We have also received objections to other books that do not contain sexually inappropriate material, none of which have been removed from our libraries.
This seems to be a statement in defiance of citizen’s objection to CRT. It’s also possible the superintendent categorizes man-on-man anal sex as appropriate and refuses to do anything about those books.
It’s probably both actually.
In accordance with state and federal law, the District does not arbitrarily remove books, but instead reviews these books to determine whether they conform to our selection guidelines. No book is ever removed simply because of the viewpoint expressed in the book.
Any viewpoint is allowed you say? Why do I not believe that.
Over the course of this school year, our librarians and central office library staff have been engaged in a comprehensive review of library collection development guidelines and policies. That review identified the root cause of the sexually inappropriate material found in Frisco ISD to be the shifting standards of professional review publications that districts across the country have relied on for decades.
Right, it’s called America has been given over to cultural Marxists. And you’re going to see a lot more of it when the millennials brought up in this education system are put in charge.
Naturally, Mike is blaming someone else.
I’d ask Mike, those who have “shifted” standards towards base degeneracy, who educated those people, Mike?
Was it… educators?
Additionally, it became clear that one particular professional review publication had begun positively reviewing titles that contain inappropriate content.
And who is behind this underhanded scheme to funnel second-rate fetish novels and smut to young children?
Additionally, our library staff will implement a weeding schedule for our collections. As part of the weeding process, librarians will re-evaluate titles selected under the old guidelines for compliance with the new guidelines. In April, the Board approved the hiring of additional staff to support this effort and assist librarians in purchasing materials in accordance with our new guidelines as well as ongoing maintenance of library collections.
So the superintendent convinced the board they needed to hire more people in order to get rid of the smut, and now he’s claiming there is hardly any smut and they’ve only removed 5 books?
While many social media posts, including those from Representative Jared Patterson, have suggested that the District has been seeking to minimize this issue, I want to be clear that from the time the issue first entered the public discourse, our library staff has taken it very seriously. They have taken immediate action with regard to titles that have been identified to the District, and have been working to identify gaps in our processes and policies that have allowed for inappropriate materials to become available to our students.
This is like if a police chief came out and defended a police officer who shot an unarmed man in the back while running away by saying, “Look, the officer took the situation very seriously.”
District staff and Board members met with Representative Patterson in February to discuss his concerns and the role of vendors in book selection. At that meeting, District staff informed him that we had been working to address this issue for several months and had determined that book reviewers, not vendors, are the root cause of this issue.
This is like saying the cartel member who killed your family member is not the problem, but instead it’s El Chapo that is the problem.
Despite this information, Representative Patterson informed the District that he would demand that districts across the state sign a pledge not to do business with certain vendors. At the meeting, he also reported one title to District staff. That title was reviewed and removed immediately and Representative Patterson was informed of its removal within minutes.
The superintendent is openly admitting that their process is political, and that a regular parent can make the same request about the same book and then get the run-around for weeks or months, but powerful people are given special access.
Weird thing to admit.
Parents have been getting the run around for years on this stuff, but now they act like they care because they are caught.
When the District received Representative Patterson’s demand that we sign the pledge to not to do business with certain vendors, the District responded that it is not our practice to sign non-binding pledges drafted by third parties and that it is unfeasible for districts to evaluate the entire sales history of a vendor prior to purchasing from that vendor.
So they can hire new people to review books, but not to curate the books?
Instead of working collaboratively with the District to find real solutions to this problem, Representative Patterson posted on social media.
Seems like it’s working, no?
His first post included excerpts from the book he had reported to the District nearly two months earlier as if he had just learned of the book, without acknowledging the fact that the District immediately reviewed and removed the book when he informed us of it.
Waldrip believes Patterson should have flaunted his power and influence to be able to get immediate action to his problems because he’s a State Representative. It is what it is, but it’s probably not something you want to flaunt.
We are asking our community to please not follow Representative Patterson’s example of reporting books in social media posts and instead share the titles with us directly so we can quickly begin our reconsideration process.
The superintendent mentioned Patterson 9 times!
The whole thing is unhinged and weird for the person in charge of the schools to attack parents and Patterson, considering these schools are complete and total disasters. The superintendent is apparently from Post, TX so we may have a yokel situation.
One thing is certain, Patterson is vibing right now.
Vibe on, King. Vibe with me.
