Parents outraged after teacher mocks 'bigots,' 'evangelicals' in Dr. Seuss-style poem at school board meeting

Krista Tyler, instructional technology specialist at Grisham Middle School in the Round Rock Independent School District (ISD) read the poem at the Leander ISD school board meeting Dec. 16.

Everyone in Leander liked reading a lot/ but some evangelicals in Leader did not,” Tyler begins. “These kooks hated reading, the whole reading season./ Please don’t ask why, no one quite knows the reason./ It could be perhaps critical thinking causes fright./ It could be their heads aren’t screwed on just right./ But whatever the reason, their brains or their fright,/ they can’t follow policy in plain black and white.

These bigots don’t get to choose for us, that’s clear,” Tyler’s poem continues. “Then how, I am wondering, did we even get here./ They growl at our meetings, all hawing and humming,/ ‘We must stop this indoctrination from coming!’/ They’ve come for the books and the bonds and what for?/ Their kids don’t even attend Leander schools anymore./ Bring back our books, maintain decorum, good grief./ Wouldn’t it be nice to have a meeting in peace?”

Parents in Round Rock ISD and Leander ISD expressed outrage over Tyler’s poem.

I’m disgusted and disheartened that there are teachers in our school district who think it is OK to mock parents for their religious beliefs, and for demanding that children not have access to books in the library or classroom that have pornographic illustrations and graphic descriptions of sex acts,” Dustin Clark, a father of four children in Round Rock public schools who got arrested for speaking out in a school board meeting, aan Fox News gesê.

Clark mentioned two of the books in question: “Lawn Boy,” by Jonathan Evison, which includes long sections of a boy reminiscing about explicit experiences he had at 10 jaar oud; en “Gender Queer: A Memoir,” by Maia Kobabe, which includes photos of sexual acts between a boy and a man. Concerned parents have spoken up about these books and others in Leader and Round Rock, as well as in other school districts, soos Fairfax County, Virginia.

The opinions of the teacher who recently spoke at the board meeting illustrate the utter disconnect some teachers have with their communities,” Orlando Salinas, a father of one child in Round Rock ISD and other children too young for public schools, aan Fox News gesê. He said the teachersare under the impression that parents are coming to these meetings in the spirit of political divisiveness, when this is not the case.

Parents such as myself, are increasingly participating in school board meetings because we see firsthand the detrimental effects that ‘woke-ism’ has had on our schools and our children,” Salinas continued. “In Round Rock, 8% of African American students and 11% of Hispanic students perform math on grade level, Volgens die 2021 STARR Performance data. We parents are attending these meetings to challenge the status quo because the status quo is not working for our students.
