Justin Burr wants to track what films were shown in schools


We'll have to be more careful with our Liberal Socialist Indoctrination Program (LSIP):


The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts: SECTION 1.(a) Each local board of education and each charter school shall report in writing to the Superintendent of Public Instruction by September 1, 2018, on each movie shown during instructional time at each school in the local school administrative unit or at each charter school during the 2017-2018 school year in the months of November, December, January, April, May, and June.

SECTION 2. There is appropriated from the General Fund to the Department of Public Instruction the sum of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) in nonrecurring funds for the 2018-2019 fiscal year to provide for collection and summarization of data in accordance with this act.

If you're wondering about those dates, join the club. This bill was filed three days ago, but it seeks data from the previous school year. Data that was not (previously) required of teachers to compile. Yes, most of those teachers could probably tell you exactly what was taught on a specific day by perusing their schedules, and could probably tell you off the top of their heads what films were shown. But the timing of this tells me Justin Burr has a burr up his butt about something. Like, some irate evangelical parent told him about some evil film that was shown (Evolution!), and he's on a crusade to root out that evil. Whatever the case, get a life, dude. Are you upset you couldn't punish judges all across the state, so now you're going after teachers? I'll take that silence as a "yes."



When's Burr up for reelection?

He might have gotten some tip he's going to use in his campaign.

He lost his primary!

Delicious, isn't it?
He'll be out come January. He'll have time to spend at his bail bond business or selling property (HE TOO IS A REALTOR - they're all realtors!)
And on his campaign website he says his primary opponent - Wayne Sasser - is "a liberal Democrat pretending to be a Republican" - we sure hope so! But there is also a Democrat running - Karen Webster. And a libertarian - Michael Finn.

Hallelujah, forgot about that!

Good riddance to bad rubbish. He's been a cancer in the Legislature since he first arrived.

I've been told that teachers

I've been told that teachers already have to account for films they show and how they fit their curriculum.
