The scam of "equity" in schools is on display in California. More accurately, it's on display based on what isn't in California: its first superintendent of equity.

According to Politico, "California's first superintendent of equity lives in Philadelphia and has a separate job there, more than 2,500 miles away from the schools he advises as one of the highest-paid officials in the state Department of Education." Daniel Lee apparently has never lived in California, but he was given a job that was not publicly posted by the state Education Department. He was a friend of State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond, and apparently, that was enough.

There are some 6 million students in California's 10,588 public schools. California politicians and governors who have lived in the state their entire lives already have little understanding about how to promote success for those students: What some "life coach" in Pennsylvania has to offer them is anyone's guess.

But "equity" is not about promoting success or preparing students for the future. California has shown that with its desire to stamp out advanced programs and deemphasize math. What equity is really about is funneling money toward useless bureaucrats and bloated departments of "diversity, equity, and inclusion" and, in this case, your social worker buddy who lives three time zones away.

Universities across the country have shown this to be the case. Bureaucratic bloat is one of the biggest reasons higher education has become so expensive, and that bloat can be found in these "equity" departments. Many universities have more equity officials than history professors. The University of Michigan has 163 people listed as providing equity programs and services. Power Five universities, on average, have four times as many equity officials as they do compliance staff for the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Neither these bloated bureaucracies nor Lee's six-figure salary does anything to help students. California students are not going to be any better at math or science because of a "superintendent of equity," especially one who lives in Philadelphia. The scam of equity being pushed by Democrats is just an excuse to move around taxpayer money for politicians and bureaucrats. California is one of the most egregious examples.

The important thing to remember is that as soon as those indoctrinated students reach the age of 18 Marc Elias & co will make sure they have a ballot sent to them!

I just hope that they are capable of reading the ballot AND understanding the issues.  

It makes me wonder exactly how racist California schools must be to require an "equity" superintendent.

I'm hoping they realize the consequences of the last election.

You never know. People once thought the GOP would never make inroads with the Hispanic vote. It turns out Ronald Reagan was right. Hispanics are religious, hard working and family oriented. Home is the GOP.

Ronald Reagan was right.

Reagan was right about a lot of things. And some people are bound and determined to keep proving him correct right here.

Reagan was right about a lot of things.

You mean like curing inflation and creating a 20 year boom?  The strange thing about the 1980's was that Conservatism really came through for America. It did everything the people wanted. It was very effective and what Reagan said about big government being the problem was largely accepted later on by Bill Clinton. All of it came to an end with the election of 2008. People seem to forget something Obama said. Obama thought Reagan was an important President because he changed the trajectory of America. Obama was determined to change it back. He was never able to do it with two terms. It was Joe Biden who actually did it - in a frightful 11 months. 


And some people are bound and determined to keep proving him correct right here.

Yup.

Surely you aren't disputing the fact that Dr. Lee is indeed the Superintendent of Equity for California schools, are you?

I can give you more sources for that if you think the current one lied about that.

So, which is it? Would you like more sources to back the facts up, or will you at least concede the facts?

I am not familiar with your "Mooney thing", but is it like wild-ass fantasies of Helsinki?
