Spurious charge against OPUSD



In The Acorn’s recent school choice article, a statement attributed to Dan Stepenosky, superintendent of Las Virgenes Unified School District, accused the OPUSD of a practice of giving preferential treatment to those of Caucasian and Asian descent—and then followed with nothing.

Decry bigotry



It was sadly amusing to read the article in which interfaith leaders “decry bigotry” in response to a “huge” spike in racist hate crimes while tap dancing all around the elephant in the room. When do you remember any other American president being celebrated and quoted with his campaign slogan on the front page of the Ku Klux Klan newspaper […]
