THE HILL
— Critical Race Theory and the threat to Democrats – J.T. YOUNG
https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/564588-crts-threat-to-democrats
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Buried in 2020’s tumult was the inroad Donald Trump made into Democrats’ core groups. From 2016 to 2020, Trump increased his percentage of support among Blacks (4 percent), Latinos (4 percent), Asians (7 percent), Women (1 percent), and Others (5 percent). Democrats are extremely dependent on winning big majorities in these groups, each of which (with the exception of Women) are decided electoral minorities. Even with Trump’s inroads, Biden still won large margins in each: Blacks (87 percent), Latinos (65 percent), Asians (61 percent), Women (57 percent) and Others (55 percent).)

(DIERSEN: When I graduated from NIU in 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in management, when I was viewed as being “draft bait,” I took the only job offer that I got — Retail Sales Manager for the Chicago Heights Firestone Store. My father had died suddenly in 1969 and potential employers did not believe that my financial hardship draft deferment application would be approved. The job did not really require a college degree. Constructively, I was the store’s salesman. The Firestone Stores Chicago District Office hired me. I asked to be assigned to the Chicago Heights store because I lived with my mother and brother in Crete. My Chicago Heights Firestone Store manager would not have hired me. Sadly, he disapproved of my following demographics: Republican, draft avoider, German American, and Missouri Synod Lutheran. He refused to let me start until I passed a probationary period working for the Firestone Store in Gary. After I had worked for him for 7 months, he rudely fired me when I gave him my 2-week notice that I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile.)

ABC7
— Wheaton parents demand face masks be mandatory in schools regardless of CDC guidelines – Sarah Schulte
https://abc7chicago.com/wheaton-il-parents-face-masks-illinois-schools/10892331/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some Wheaton Community Unit School District 200 parents are outraged the district has decided to make masks optional for the upcoming school year. “My superintendent is arrogant enough to believe that it’s ok to roll the dice with the lives of our children, and that’s unacceptable,” said Ronak Maisuria, parent. Parents are especially concerned for all the elementary students 11-years-old and younger who are not eligible for the vaccine. The district contains several elementary schools. “We all have sacrificed, we need to do our part in the last few months to continue to protect everyone until the option is available for school-aged children,” said Jill Caballero, parent. “I don’t think we’re out of the woods yet, and I think the Delta variant is a great concern to me and to my family,” said Daniel Vissers, parent. Supt. Dr. Jeff Schuler was not available for an interview but did respond with an emailed statement. It read in part, “District 200 is very cognizant of the CDC guidance and continues to prioritize student safety in our back to school planning, as we have done over the last 12 month.” As long as there are layered mitigations, Dr. Schuler said the CDC guidance does allow for local school districts to make adjustments to the mitigations.)

https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/parents-raise-concerns-after-suburban-school-districts-change-mask-rules/2556917/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Several dozen parents in west suburban Wheaton rallied and marched to Community Unit School District 200 headquarters Friday afternoon to demand the district continue to require masks in classrooms. The school district recently decided masks would be optional at all grade levels when the new school year begins. “It feels like they don’t care about my child’s health,” said parent Charlotte Sobota. The state is leaving it up to local school districts to decide if masks are required, and that is not sitting well with some parents. “You do not take away the preventative health measure that is most proven to work,” said parent and rally organizer Ronak Maisuria. District 200 said it is continuing mitigations such as masks on buses and physical distancing at 3 feet. The district also said it is cognizant of CDC guidance, and if local conditions suggest a need to adjust practices, “we will do that as we did all last year as plans adjusted.”)

CBS2
— ‘Not Sending My Child Back’: Parents Of Wheaton School District Upset About Mask Optional Rule – Megan Hickey
https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2021/07/16/parents-wheaton-school-district-upset-mask-optional/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This week, District 200 in Wheaton opted to make masks optional for all students, which didn’t sit well with everyone. Some parents even rallied outside the superintendent’s office Friday afternoon. The march to the Community Unit School District 200 building on Friday was prompted by a vote earlier this week to make masks optional. It’s diverging from the CDC’s recent recommendation that only students and teachers who are fully vaccinated should drop the masks. “I thought it was a no brainer at the elementary school level. I thought my daughter would be going to school in the first grade and everyone would be wearing a mask in the room.” District 200 mom Ronak Maisuria. “It’s not about my family, this is about our community,” added fellow District 200 mom Jessica Banaszek. They organized some like-minded parents who still plan to mask their children, but worry that won’t be enough to safeguard their health. “So right now I’m telling you I’m not sending my child back to school on August 23,” said Banaszek. “They have their choice, but their choice takes away the safety of everyone around them.” The topic is polarizing, to say the least.)

Each voting precinct has a committee person (these are your neighbors!), so contact your local precinct committeeman and ask how you can become involved. It’s easy.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A group in Illinois is looking for chapters across the state to help keep tabs on teaching plans they say are dividing children. A parent in Naperville, Shannon Adcock, said she became aware of “culturally responsive teaching” when she was unsuccessful in running for the school board. She said the more she learned about it, the more she felt it was regressive and divisive by teaching children race or gender directly impacts outcomes. “You are having students segregated by their color, by their sexuality, by their any number of filters that an activist teacher can choose and say ‘so because of your skin color you are a problem, because of your skin color you will never make it in life, because of this intangible systemic problem in one of the greatest countries in the world,’ and to me, it’s to me extremely anti-Americanism, it’s anti-child and I believe it to be child abuse,” Adcock told WMAY. “Teach history, there’s no question about that, but when you begin filtering students, this becomes a problem and it’s a violation, a constitutional violation.” She said the curriculum can take many different names and forms, so she and others seeing similar trends in other parts of the state started the website AwakeIL.com as a way to share information with taxpayers, parents and educators about trends around the state. “We are going to preserve the integrity of our constitution, state and federal, and we’re going to take that divisive curricula and segregationist approach to education out of our classrooms,” she said.)
