Republican State Rep. Scott Schwab Sends Questionable and Bizarre Email to Olathe School District

Representative Schwab sent an email to the Olathe school district earlier this week criticizing superintendent Marlin Berry and the Olathe school board. It is Brownback bullies like Schwab who want to punish school districts for speaking out against Schwab and Brownback's failed policies. Schwab's email is full of half-truths and political double-talk. 

Schwabb's email reads:

"Dear Teachers and Associates of the Olathe School District,

I wanted to reach out to you this month because of concerns I have with where the leadership of the district is leading you. Dr. Berry sent a very depressing email on or around July 17 talking about the dire disposition of the districts finances. Members of the Olathe Delegation to the Kansas Legislature were more than disappointed in his communication with you for a few reasons. First, it kills morale. It is difficult to go with passion into your daily work when the district's top leaders are pulling your heart out of it. It was sad to see such poor leadership, with no good regard to how it would affect your daily work and life." 

Superintendent Marlon Barry responded,

 "As we do every day with passion and persistence, our amazing staff and community is preparing students for their future. We are not letting an unfortunate and inaccurate message distract us from this mission."

    I am sick and tired of extremist destroying Kansas to protect the Koch fortune from a few $ in taxes.

    How sincere or concerned can Scott Schwab be, when it took him over 3 months to react to Dr. Berry’s email? Schwab’s votes as a Representative have been depressing to the daily work and life of Kansans who deserve better.

    It is shamefull that the goal of the governor, many of the legislators in Kansas are in lockstep with outside groups. The first goal is to say schools are failing and then privatize them. Just look at Louisiana for the game.plan.
