By translating Central Buck’s diversity and inclusion program (meant to ensure that students and faculty are fair to all races and religions) into Critical Race Theory (a flashword for right-wing talking heads), Edward Mackhouse, a senior citizen from Birmingham, kicked off an evening of discontent.
It was Tuesday night at the first school board meeting after the off-year election, which saw two new Democrats elected to the board. They will take their seats in December, and surely look forward to the January school board meetings, when Gov. Wolf’s mask mandate expires.
Things only got worse on Tuesday night after Mackhouse sat down, as this story in the Courier-Times makes clear.
