Tyranny in Maryland: Arrested for Asking A Question About Common Core (+video)

Is Dr. Dallas Dance, Superintendent of Baltimore County Public Schools, so incompetent and clueless that they have to have someone arrested who asks an “unapproved” question about Dr. Zimba’s statements on the Common Core?



As the push back against Common Core builds momentum, the boot of the state on the necks of the grassroots tightens. Websites, prepaid for 3 years in advance, are suddenly taken down for non-payment even though all the fees were paid. At school board meetings, board members only answer pre-selected questions that have been scripted. No “non-scripted” questions are permitted. Those who violate this, face arrest or other unpleasant experiences. Lord only knows what the child will experience in school as a result of a parent’s question.

Below you will see a video of a parent being ejected, with force, by a security goon, from a school board meeting on common core. The man ejected from the meeting is Robert Small. His crime? He asked a question as reported by the Examiner:

“I want to know how many parents here are aware that the goal of the Common Core standards isn’t to prepare kids for full-fledged universities, it’s to prepare them for community college…..Parents, take control. We’re sick of this. This is not a CNN political game. This is a public town hall… Listen, don’t stand for this. You’re sitting here like cattle. You have questions. Confront them. They don’t want to do it in public…. Parents, you need to question these people….Do the research, it’s online.”

This is the jackboot of tyranny. This is when you know you are no longer in America of the past. This is the America of Barack Obama. This is an American at a school board meeting being arrested for asking a question pertinent to the meeting. How dare an American tax payer ask Dr. Dallas Dance, Superintendent of Baltimore County Public Schools, and Lillian Lowery, Maryland Superintendent, a question!

Here you can hear the parents still objecting that their pre-submitted questions were not answered.

I wonder how many people will be arrest at the next meeting in Maryland? These tyrants need to hear from you. Even if you like the Common Core, this is not how taxpayers who payer their salary should be treated. As a citizen, you have the right to speak out. As an American, you are afforded your first Amendment Right. This gentleman did not speak out of turn. He was called on. Yet, he was Forcefully ejected.

If Dr. Dallas is this incompetent, then this superintendent should be fired or recalled. This is an outrageous infringement on the first amendment rights of Mr. Small and other parents in Baltimore, Maryland. This is not a partisan issue. This is an AMERICAN issue. In America, we have the right to debate and discuss policies freely.

If this is how parents are treated, how are they treating children? No wonder children don’t perform well on tests in school, they are afraid to speak out! Clearly, the administration, not the parents or teachers, are the problem.
