Keep Diversity Education and Programming in Oconomowoc Schools

On January 15, 2018 Oconomowoc High School hosted an all school assembly for Martin Luther King, Jr day. This event was run by students and staff and intended to teach empathy and respect for differences. The event received negative media attention from a radio host in this article by Dan O’Donnell. The school district was overwhelmed by complaints from parents aligned with Mr. O’Donnell. Unfortunately, they did not hear from the parents who supported and found value in this activity. As a result, changes were made to the school’s leadership.

The Oconomowoc School Board needs to know that as parents, community members, and concerned citizens we value diversity education. The School board needs to hear from parents and taxpayers in the Oconomowoc area especially. We need to assure that our teachers and principals feel safe allowing students to participate in their education and stand up for the values of diversity and inclusion. We can’t be the silent majority.
