More on Kids for Cash 2.0
For those who may not know, Pennsylvania has a sordid history of caregivers and authorities entrusted with children’s wellbeing, selling those children out for money: the Kids for Cash scandal.
In the original Kids for Cash crime, the torture was done to kids stuck in the juvenile detention system in Northeastern Pennsylvania, at the mercy of juvenile detention corporations and corrupt judges. And it was the judges who took the kickback bribes from the detention centers.
So Pennsylvania school districts selling public school students out by forcing them to mask, distance and participate in unwanted medical treatments in exchange for money from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, has an ugly and fairly recent precedent.
Now it’s all kids who attend Pennsylvania public schools being subjected to nonconsensual, involuntary, invasive, dehumanizing medical and social experimentation, and it’s the school districts taking the kickback bribes from the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
Pennsylvania Coalition for Informed Consent, which put out the call for parents to attend last night’s Bellefonte Area School District board meeting, is also asking parents to attend the State College Area School District board meeting on June 21.
Worth pointing out:
The signs on the doors at the Bellefonte Middle School last night said that no public would be permitted to attend the board meetings, but could watch on Zoom.
Inside there were no signs directing people to the meeting room, so I wandered around for 10 minutes, called my husband at home, and eventually found it in the cafeteria.
If someone didn’t know, through PCIC, that there was a meeting and that human parents were in the room with board members, they would have turned around and gone home.
As far as I know, SCASD has been operating entirely on Zoom all year, with no option for parents to show up in-person in groups to exercise constitutionally-protected rights such as freedom of assembly, freedom of association and the right to petition the government for redress of wrongs.
I think the SCASD board met on Zoom from their own homes, not from a school district building sitting as a group (as BASD did last night), but I don’t know, because I haven’t tried to attend a SCASD Zoom meeting, because there was no point as an isolated individual parent.
Now that parents are getting organized through PCIC, maybe things will start moving in the right direction.
