From concerned parents regarding HB331:
So, let’s get this straight. While the Gates-Zuckerberg funded ExcelinEd works with Superintendent Syd Dickson to remake our public schools around CRT-based Social Emotional Learning competencies (as opposed to state academic standards), the Hope Scholarship’s national sponsor is also ExcelinEd.
ExcelInEd is transforming public education and working with Sydnee Dickson to hold us all accountable to CRT/SEL… all the while promoting the #noHope movement (aka “School Choice”). How does this even make sense?
Important Questions to Ask
They would be forced to negotiate or abandon their creed — see line 560 and 628.
They would be forced to change their operating practices and procedures — yes… see the bill language and USBE’s plenary powers.
They fall under the penary powers of USBE’s control and supervision. Enough said.
The list goes on.
Clearly, ExcelInEd had influence over the name of the scholarship.
ExcelInEd created propaganda for missionaries of the #noHope scholarship.
The language of the bill is errily similar to similar bills ExcelInEd championed in other states.
ExcelInEd has influenced these processes. It is plausible they have an SGO waiting in the wings.
Their mission is to hold private and homeschools hostage to these ideals.
Let’s ask Texas and all other states suffering under this regime.
NO. Federal strings come with compliance to federal antidiscrimination law and with laws regarding nonprofits.
Federal strings also come through USBE.
Has USBE done great work for our state? Are our students succeeding?
No, check the Utah Constituion. USBE has PLENARY powers in this arena.
