Gun violence has surged ahead of the opioid crisis as Americans’ top public health concern, according to the latest edition of the Axios-Ipsos American Health Index.
We ask the audience, what are most concerned about when it comes to US Public Health. You can check out some of the answers we got on Twitter here:
Does that sound like a good candidate for someone you’d wanna let go? Waukesha Superintendent Dr. James Sebert seems to think so. As of this week, he has recommended the termination of Melissa Tempel – the 1st-grade teacher who first shared her school’s decision to not allow 1st graders to sing the Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton song “Rainbowland”. Which got a lot of press… like a lot.
So it’s hard to look at her accolades in conjunction with the embarrassment this story brought on the school district and not at ASK… is this discipline… or retaliation?
Cause from the outside, this looks a lot like she is being made an example of and a warning shot to other teachers in that district, “fall in line or lose your job.”
But if they thought they could bully Tempel into silence, they obviously didn’t realize that she now has grounds to make a First Amendment claim against the District and that this has only reignited the story.
Three of these headlines are real and one is faker than the phrase “made with real fruit flavor.” Can you spot the odd one out?
