It was a star-studded weekend for Broward Teachers Union (BTU) Anna Fusco. On Saturday, Fusco and Broward School Superintendent Vickie Cartwright partied with rapper Kodak Black and other politicos in Margate. Even though both women are staunch mask mandate supporters, neither Fusco nor Cartwright wore masks at the dedication of a recreational facility.
But the Broward hypocrisy parade didn’t stop there. On Sunday, the Sun-Sentinel published an editorial by Fusco scolding Governor Ron DeSantis over his fight against Broward Schools’ mask mandate.
Fusco wrote, “Governor DeSantis needs to pause his partisan fight against masks so that all Florida school boards can require masks for kids and educators.”
Fusco declared, “It’s a simple formula: Masks+ Vaccinations= Healthier Schools!”
If the formula is so simple, why did Fusco and Cartwright attend a large gathering without masks? What if the Margate event becomes a “super spreader event?”
They were mask free on Saturday. Hundreds of people attended the Margate event. Proof of vaccination was not required. Yet Cartwright and Fusco walked the red carpet to snap pics with a rapper.
Back in July, Fusco and Cartwright wore masks in Facebook video welcoming Cartwright to Broward.
Was this all for show?
Did Fusco and Cartwright get tested on Sunday?
Are Fusco and Cartwright in quarantine?
Are two of Broward’s top school officials interacting with staff, educators and kids this Monday?
How can Cartwright and Fusco continue to scold parents, students and politicians who reject their mask mandate push?
Will the Sun-Sentinel add a note to Anna Fusco’s hypocritical editorial?
The Fraternal Of Police (FOP) District 5 wants to know why fifth graders in Broward public schools are reading an anti-police social justice novel. In a thoughtful letter to the School Board of Broward County, District 5 Director Paul Kempinski says he was upset to learn local students were reading Ghost Boys by Jewell Parker Rhodes. The fictional story deals with the ghost of a dead child speaking to the young daughter of a Chicago policeman. The boy was killed by the policeman who believed the boy was holding a gun.
According to Kempinski, the dead boy convinces the girl that her father shot and killed him because he is “a liar and a racist.” He believes the message of the novel is “police officers regularly lie as they routinely murder children, while painting police officers as racists.” Kempinski notes the book fails to explore the bullying in school which leads to the boy bringing a toy gun to school.
Kempinski states his membership believes Ghost Boys is “propaganda that pushes an inaccurate and absurd stereotype of police officers in America.” He states the novel blurs the lines between fiction and non-fiction with its inclusion of real life figures and statistics. Kempinski believes some of the included statistics are “outright lies.”
“It is always a tragedy when a police officer must use deadly force, regardless of the circumstances,” Kempinski writes. “Certainly, the goal for police departments across the country is to reduce and eliminate violent crime.”
“The vast majority of police officers are good, hardworking people. With that said, police work is not perfect, and police officers are human beings—imperfect beings,” he wrote.
Kempinski applauds the attempt to teach kids about real life issues but “using a book filled with misinformation, and a dangerous message that police officers are liars, racists and murderers are not good for our children, our community, or our future.”
The FOP wants Ghost Boys pulled from the Broward schools curriculum.
