Y'all-itics: Tuesday, August 23rd
The Jasons don’t often do sequels, but Whitely got a call that two elected officials wanted to give their first-ever news interviews and Y’all-itics responded. In this episode, for the first time, top school board members at Keller ISD and Grapevine Colleyville ISD take questions from a journalist. GCISD Vice President Shannon Braun and KISD President Dr. Charles Randklev discuss the new policies that conservatives majorities on each board just passed this week. They answer why their boards changed the way library books are selected and revised how teachers talk about race, gender and sexual identity. Did any outside conservative groups influence GCISD? What books will not return to the shelves in Keller ISD? And which districts want to replicate these policies elsewhere in Texas? Braun and Randklev answer it all in this special episode.
