Explaining Townsend’s Side of SA 2 To HB 50

Sorry Kavips, Townsend does not get the “best of intentions” vote from me. He didn’t have to introduce this amendment at all. He is a lawyer, he knew what could happen, and he chose to do it anyway.

We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education.
