LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Two Arkansas school districts deny some of the state’s claims that they violated Arkansas’ ban on teaching certain things about race and sexuality.

The Pulaski County and Lakeside school districts tell the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that some of the incidents listed on a document circulated to reporters by the state Department of Education either never happened, or do not violate state law.

Lakeside Superintendent Bruce Orr told the newspaper that he met with state Education Secretary Jacob Oliva on Wednesday, and that Oliva confirmed the issues attributed to Lakeside were not violations.

“He told me, ‘You do not have any indoctrination violations,’ because that was my first question that I asked him,” Orr said in an interview Friday. “I know what I heard and I am 100% positive about that.”

1. It makes me so sad.

The destruction of our democracy and the rise of fascism starts with the suppression of the press and our educational systems. Forcing people back into the closet will not stop a natural, biological happening.

These people are completely nuts, just whackos. Eliminating the Department of Education also will not stop people from being people.
