Reconsider SBOE appointment of Matthew Brown
We are asking Governor Bentley to reconsider the appointment to Matthew Brown to Alabama State Board of Education because of a lack of qualifications. When hundreds of educators, parents and concerned citizens worked tirelessly to to pass a tax last March to help our schools, Matthew Brown was leading the effort to defeat this vote. So a few months ago he is against helping public schools--now the governor wants us to believe he is the right person to support public education. Does a leopard change his spots?
Matthew never attended public school and has stated he will not send his own children to public schools. Plus, during the March campaign his group frequently distorted information in order to mislead voters. There are many well-qualified people who could serve on the state board from south Alabama, Mathew Brown is NOT one of them. We urge Governor Bentley to reconsider this appointment and give someone who will work FOR our public schools, instead of AGAINST them as Matthew Brown has done.
