Analysis: The Battle for Newberg’s Kids
Students and their parents are increasingly unsatisfied customers

The recall efforts to remove Kate Brown from office nearly succeeded. What they didn’t expose was the power behind the throne. Kate Brown wants to work inside the Wash. D.C. beltway so bad she will do anything. The more tyrannical and brazen, the more likely that she’ll get noticed. The lockdowns, mandates and sanctioned attacks on the country’s founding principles go on unabated to further her political career. Teachers got cuts in line for vaccines. That’s the visible part. The less visible part is the organization that finances and drives enforcement of this destruction. The power behind the throne is the teachers union.

When did teachers colleges began progressive indoctrinating? When did continuing education for Oregon teachers and administrators alike stress progressive indoctrination? John Dewey is credited with creating Progressive Education in the early 20th century. That’s 100 years ago. In that time many Universities born of Christian teachings have come under the control of government grants. The ideals of their founders, people like John Harvard, are in total contradiction to the grievance Marxism that dominates curriculums today. Faculty comply, or are forced out as we have seen over many decades and in just the last two weeks in the case of PSU professor Peter Boghossian.

At the local level we now have a fight to the death involving the majority of the Newberg School Board and their detractors. A 4-3 vote of the Board called for the removal of political signs and banners from the classrooms. Imagine that, a school that teaches the basics and allows, even encourages students to think for themselves. The vote gained an overnight appearance by socialist icon New York Congressional Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in Newberg to call for protests. Employers of the four board members have been asked to fire them. One employer already gave in to the pressure and terminated the employment of a conservative board member. Another has had art work removed from display at two locations. Convinced it is their duty to indoctrinate, administrators and teachers cooperate with activity threatening the livelihood of School Board members who won’t aid their quest for power. The ACLU, a union appendage, has been called in to sue the board.

Conflicts between school staff and parents over the education of students is a daily occurrence. Parents are increasingly concerned that public schools will never again be a place of learning. The Governor and her union masters apparently share that belief. Testing and grade standards have been removed as necessary measures for earning a diploma. In most commercial interactions the customer comes first or they take their business elsewhere. With public education the customer comes first only in providing revenue. The customer comes last otherwise. Students and their parents are increasingly unsatisfied customers.
