Leaving Home
June 19, 2015

We always kinda knew why Governor Rick Perry wasn’t big on education. After all, he was not burdened with intellectual curiosity.

But apparently Governor Greg Abbott hates, hates, hates education.

He just named the new State Board of Education Chairman. Her name is Donna Bahorich and she home schooled her kids. That wouldn’t be so terribly weird if the State Board of Education didn’t approve curriculum and textbooks for public schools.It also is kinda weird that Bahorich didn’t get the job because of her expertise in education. She’s a political hack, plain, simple, and worthless.


She was the campaign manager for Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a man who is so mean that flowers wilt when he walks by.

On Bahorich’s own website, all of her volunteer work and Awards are rightwing political.

So, a woman who doesn’t believe in public education is gonna head up public education.

Welcome to Texas, y’all.

Can you help us out?
