How long will Nancy Navarro and the BOE “tolerate” Joan Benz and Michael J. Doran, the principals at Churchill and Wootton? On July 16th the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) sent a lawsuit letter to Navarro outlining unconstitutional conduct by Benz and Doran.

A copy of the letter ADF attorneys sent can be read at www.telladf.org/UserDocs/MontgomeryCountyLetter.pdf

ADF has a long and successful track record of suing public schools for discrimination. MCPS had provided them with another nice case violating free speech rights. How many times will the BOE allow Jerry Dean Weast and his administrators to break the law and get the BOE sued? Lets not forget that we tax payers provide the funding for both sides each time MCPS gets sued.

Furthermore, do we really want our high school students to witness the suppression of free speech by teachers and administrators? How could Benz stand by and encourage homosexual students to trash the flyers as described in the ADF letter? Navarro can’t deny the facts, the details were witnessed by hundreds of students and chronicled in student newspapers. Could it be that the BOE actually supports this conduct? Probably so.

We assume this will all come out when MCPS is sued and Navarro and the others have to testify about what they knew, when they knew it and why they did nothing to stop it.

Oh, by the way, Navarro and the BOE do tolerate Benz and Doran. Remember, to the BOE, to “tolerate” an idea means to “accept, affirm and celebrate” it. If you respectfully disagree with an idea that the BOE supports, you are “intolerant”and “bigoted.” When I was in school, we called that “doublespeak.” Stay tuned and watch your money get wasted.
