I day late on this issue. were student told that this was going to take place and given the opportunity to opt out from attendance? This is a private school so not sure what applies.

I'm assuming you are against no commencement addresses by politicians (unless they fit your view of course), or any participation in schools. Politicians spoke often at my high school. I was interested to see who would be first to bite on this story. Congrats!

I can remember when President Barack Obama I wanted to welcome back our nation’s students for the fall semester. I remember the uproar in Victoria.

Mike Gomez

Rick, it didn’t surprise me that you were the first in line to defend.

Rick Dockery

Neither did the criticism of an elected official speaking to a group of high school students at a private high school, in which the democratic leader in Victoria graduated. Apparently, he wasn't indoctrinated, and having met him, he'd be the first to tell you this was ok. I really enjoyed meeting him and I think he's great for the democratic party in Victoria.

Mike Gomez

Rick, I think it’s comical what a libertarian thinks would be good for the Democratic Party. Democrats are not monolithic. I think this is a non-issue.

Claudia McCarty

GOP indoctrination at its finest. I only hope these students remember that compassion and kindness towards all others are our most important values, even politically.

Rick Dockery

I was waiting.
