When I think of Alaska, I tend to think of a sturdy conservative state that elected Sarah Palin as its governor. Then, I remember that Alaskans keep sending Lisa Murkowski to the Senate. Clearly, there’s a leftist strain in that state. It was clearly revealed at a Fairbanks School Board meeting regarding a proposed revision to school policies that would have required teachers to wade into controversial, polarizing subjects. That’s an interesting discussion and one school boards should have. What I found noteworthy, though, was the desperate speed with which leftist board members moved to silence a conservative board member who peacefully began to read from a book readily found on the high school library shelves.
Reader discretion suggested. There is a YouTube video in the article which includes reading part of the book in question. It’s amazing how defensive the left leaning members of the School Board became.
