Last week, I named several Texas educators that are closely affiliated with Texas ASCD, a progressive education organization that works to place radical educators and curricula into public schools.
Below is a list of more Texas educators involved with Texas ASCD, but these individuals make up the board of directors.
President, Al Hambrick – Sherman ISD
President Elect, Carl Key – New Diana ISD
Vice President, Suzanne McWilliams – Forney ISD
Vice President Elect, Susanne Carroll, Victoria ISD
Influence Liaison, Gena Gardiner – Highland Park ISD
Past President, Janis Jordan – Corpus Chrisi ISD
Patti Birney – Assistant Superintendent, East Central ISD
Lane Ledbetter – Superintendent, Graham ISD
Darla Pollard – Assistant Superintendent, Terrell ISD
Glenda Heil – Mesquite ISD
Sharon Hogue – Cypress-Fairbanks ISD
Barbara Gideon – Houston ISD
Maria Luisa Guerra – Assistant Superintendant, Edinburg CISD
Tasha Barker – Lindale ISD
Bill Bechtol – Eanes ISD
Juneria Berges – Assistant Superintendent, Huntsville, ISD
Michael Waldrip- Frisco ISD
David Young – Midway ISD
Lisa Young – Southlake Carroll ISD
When searching ASCD’s national website, it’s easy to see that this organization promotes progressive education. The site proudly boasts of conference speakers like Paulo Freire, touts reform efforts of Bill Ayers and his maoist friend and fellow Weather Underground member, Mike Klonsky, through their Small Schools Workshop, and reports ad nauseam on the ‘successes’ of Theodore Sizer’s Coalition of Essential Schools.
However, the Texas ASCD website isn’t quite that obvious. Regardless, Texas educators have a responsibility to students, parents, and the laws of the State of Texas.
While it might be possible to believe that educators who are newly affiliated with Texas ASCD may not yet realize what this organization is really about, the superintendents and assistant superintendents who make up the board of directors certainly should know and they should be held accountable for directing an organization whose national affiliates promote progressive education and communist revolutionaries who call themselves educators.
