I'm back! Before I get into the meat the potatoes of this post I must extend a sincere thank you to Chip for filling in during the void due to someone(s) cutting off the Internet to my home. I HOPE Chip will continue to post on a daily basis. We like and encourage diversity here at RedEye's page. If anyone else interested in being a contributor grab a moniker and send me a writing sample c/o firstname.lastname@example.org. I would also like to thank all of the readers/lurkers for your continued support. I continue to be amazed and humbled, it is why I blog, and why I am eternally grateful to mooncat and countrycat for encouraging me to blog, for encouraging me to start my own blog. ~RedEye
So, I return to find the Huntsville City Schools up to their old tricks in an attempt to keep the school system segregated by race/class, ironically at the same time the University of Alabama Student Government Association votes for integrating the Greek system.
We are constantly being told the NAACP Legal Defense Fund agrees with the Huntsville City Schools rezoning plan, but clearly that is a lie.
Enabled by the media, HCS keeps repeating The NAACP Legal Defense Fund did not oppose the Huntsville City Schools rezoning plan meme, counting on the public to infer the NAACP LDF supports the plan.
What they don't count on is the public having enough sense to read the motion for themselves. The special counsel for the plaintiffs (Norman J. Chachkin) is not opposed to the new school construction plan because of penalties the BOE would incur if they don't start construction of the new Grissom and the new Johnson High Schools by a certain date due to Arbitrage (Page 6-7 and footnotes page 6). The Plaintiffs attorney reserved the right to oppose the rezoning plan and further litigate whatever issues he deems are in the best interest of the class.
In other words, the LDF has not dismissed this lawsuit.
The motion filed by HCS BOE request the courts approval, and DOJ agreement, to build a new Johnson High School and a new Grissom High School (footnotes page 4). The court did not approve, and the DOJ did not agree to closing Johnson, renaming Johnson, or closing and combining Butler High School with Johnson High School. The closing of Butler is part of the rezoning plan which the LDF reserved the right to oppose.
"For more information contact your school board member or Huntsville Council of PTA's." Again, the public is supposed to believe their school board member will answer their questions and not know the Huntsville Cluster of PTA's is a racket, I mean, an arm of the superintendent and the BOA.
Just in case the school board rep will answer questions that aren't written down here are a few:
1. Who is the owner of the Bulk Mail permit?Wonder why the media isn't investigating this?
2. Who generated the distribution list?
3. Who composed the copy?
4. Was this approved by the BOE?
5. If it was approved by the BOE when and where was it voted on?
We know why.
