Lewiston School Committee to Vote on Supporting Controversial Immigration Bill Monday

2/8/18, Maine First Media Staff Report,

At Monday’s committee meeting, the Lewiston School Committee will consider a motion to officially support state legislation to “recruit, educate and retain” a cheap, foreign workforce to Maine.

The School Committee is deciding to focus on RINO Sen. Roger Katz’ controversial bill proposing to spend millions of your tax dollars on adult education and job-search assistance for immigrants and refugees, a new Foreign Welcome Center and the creation of a cabinet position of “Office of New Mainers.”

Meanwhile, Lewiston School District ranks 168th out of 172 in the state. Schooldigger awards the district zero stars.

Parents might expect committee members to spend more time discussing ways to personalize learning, modernize the classrooms, adapt more skills-based education, or refocus curriculum on vocational and tech classes.

However, the district appears to prioritize making open-border political statements appeasing Leftists who celebrate the 34 different languages heard in Lewiston school hallways.

The Lewiston City Council voted Tuesday to officially support the legislation.  After weeks of discussion, the final vote was 6-1 in favor of endorsing the bill.

The lone dissenting vote was Councilor Michael Marcotte.
