I graduated from David Douglas High School in 1968. My wife and four children graduated from David Douglas High School. Our grandchildren attend school in the David Douglas District. Our roots are deep enough to have experienced a great transformation and improvement of the cultural and political life of our community. Personally, I have taken long walks throughout our district, coming into contact with new families, new homes and whole new interactions in nearby park and school ground. And I count my Junior Year literature class under Karen Kullbom, who also taught my four children, as a pivotal event in my upbringing. While board member Anderson's controversial comment was careful and narrow, the more I ponder it, the more the implication disturb me. Does this reflect a mind and heart divorced from the historical reality that every great civilization and culture has been the outcome of a dialogue of civilizations and cultures, and such dialogue is the key to unlocking the full potential of our community? And when we consider our school system being a vanguard of social and economic development, the sort of conservatism, at best, and reactionary resistance, at worst, maybe peeping its head in the one example Mr. Anderson chose to characterize our immigrant people, of the murder of a woman presumably by an undocumented immigrant, raises an alert when placed in the context of his being a steward of a school populated by a United Nations of students.

I don't think his attitude fits the desire leadership for our school district. I want our board to reflect its community, and his comments exposed his lack of understanding of the people he supposedly represents.

My children's father is an immigrant to this country, and my children don't deserve to hear him compared to a murderer, nor do any children deserve this. For shame!

Thanks for adding your voice.

I'm signing because I believe Mr. Anderson is not fit to serve our children and our community. It's time to fight racism and ignorance whenever it shows up. Time to resign, Bryce.

There is no place for this kind of bigotry in a leadership position over an organization that educates children.

I am signing this petition because there should be no room for racism, discrimnation, and bigotry (among others) in public schools. I am a DDHS Alumn and my heart aches learning members of the School District think like this individual thinks.

Thanks for adding your voice.

If someone claims that he would protect immigrant students against ICE, why have little to nothing has been done on his part (and part of the board). But when a resolution is presented he does not supported. DDHS deserves better.

Bryce Anderson's words are anti-American. His words are intolerable and shall not stand in a place of public education.
