Meredith Browand’s column in the last KP News regarding attacks on public education needs to be expanded (“A Tribute to Teachers,” October).
If we fail to see this as just one part of a broader campaign, there will be hell to pay. There is a cabal of pseudo “conservatives,” aka insurrectionists, working to grasp the governmental reins of power by delegitimizing and then tearing down the institutions that have enabled the country to function for over 200 years.
This includes our public education, judicial, electoral, congressional taxation systems. The sad thing is that the often-well-meaning citizens, who have been tricked into carrying out this war against our institutions, are going to be left behind in the dust if it succeeds.
