Take for instance thier last two American Graduate Award winners, an award given supposedly for service to education, Gary Chartrand and Janet Adkins. There are few people in the state who have done more to damage public education than those two but for some reason WJCT decided to give them awards praising them.
This brings me to their controversial remarks. Three years ago Chartrand made what many considered homophobic remarks.
From the I can’t make this up category, today at Florida’s education summit he said: Florida Board Chairman Gary Chartrand suggested that the state look for a curriculum or instructional materials for Common Core that "align with Florida's values and culture." He said reading lists could upset people; particularly in they mentioned topics such as socialism or homosexuality.
Then it was reported today, Adkins made remarks many consider racist.
