The board of New College in Sarasota, Florida, fired its woke, leftist president because she would not obey Florida laws and end the teaching of critical race theory.
Not only did the board members fire the woke president, they replaced her with former Florida House speaker and Florida Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran as interim president, according to the Herald-Tribune.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis made national news by backing rules that prevents Florida’s public schools from pushing left-wing, ahistorical, anti-American, and anti-white Critical Race Theory classwork on students.
But, now former school president Patricia Okker has refused to obey the state’s rules to excise CRT from the school’s curriculum. But she has also attacked the new board members, calling them a “hostile takeover.”
After she was rightfully fired, Okker was “in tears.”
Fighting back tears, an emotional Okker said she couldn’t go along with “this new mandate where this is a hostile takeover and a dramatic change in the mission.” Members of the audience – some in tears themselves – urged her to fight for her job. Okker apologized for disappointing them.
“I believe a president needs to stand behind her words when she asks donors to contribute,” she said. “It is the only way that I can be effective. You cannot ask me to go forward and argue that we are indoctrinating students here. I do not believe it.”
Yep. She deserved to be fired.
This woman is a propagandist, and she wanted to continue pushing her propaganda.Commentary
