JEN SHOWALTER PRESS RELEASE

SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATE JEN SHOWALTER RESPONDS TO PALM BEACH SCHOOL BOARD ANNOUNCEMENT

 

Wellington, FL — On November 6, the Palm Beach County School Board announced the decision to return to mask option starting November 8, for students. Later that evening, the Florida Department of Education praised the board in a tweet for “recognizing parents have the right to make health care and educational decisions for their children.”

 

However, three facts confirm the Palm Beach County School Board disregards both parental and  individual rights. 

 

First, two days prior at their Special Meeting, the Board had a notice (attached) distributed that listed eleven new rules for attendance that clearly violate individual rights. One item listed was citizens were to remain seated, “moving only to go to the podium, the restroom or to leave the meeting.” Another item was, “refrain from moving the chairs.” This prevented parents from keeping children close at hand and discussion among attendees. Other rules were ambiguous, easily misinterpreted and abused. No re-entry of the building was not listed but enforced. One parent stepped outside to her car and was refused re-entry to the building where her belongings and daughter were seated. There was no warning when she departed.  

 

Secondly, the notice for opt out does not include employees. From teachers to cafeteria workers, employees have been forced to wear masks the entire school year, with no ability to opt out. Many adults are listed as disabled with ADA, but that was disregarded. Cooks went on record stating the deteriorating kitchen conditions and health concerns, which are OSHA violations, that went ignored.

 

Lastly, if the board had recognized parental rights, they would have rescinded the unlawful mandate when asked, not only last Wednesday’s meeting, but at every meeting prior. “The Board knows the State Legislature is holding a Special Session on November 15, and that was the catalyst for the original opt out reinstatement,” said Jennifer Showalter. “The Board now realizes just how much hot water they are in, and are trying to mitigate the consequences. The mountain of lawsuits on their desk, the determined and brave students, parents, and citizens speaking up month after month, the outcome of this month’s elections, and the ongoing bad national press are also factors.” 

 

The Board has proven to go back on its word, so parents, students and staff should be wary of a future reinstatement, as suggested in the notice. 

 

Jen Showalter went further to say, “Parents, students and staff have rights. They should be able to raise concerns without fear of reprisal. The Board has failed to respect the rights of parents and individuals, so citizens are exhausting all legal avenues to hold them accountable.”

Jennifer Showalter’s mission is to return the voice and authority to the citizens through transparency, communication with parents and accountability, to ban all mandates, to eradicate indoctrination and restore curriculum refocusing on ACTUAL academics in a positive environment of personal responsibility and strong work ethic.

ICE CREAM TALK WITH JEN 

Jen met with citizens and concerned parents by Kobosko Kreamery to grab some ice cream, then discuss the issues facing our kids, our staff and school system. Several parents were describing the struggles they faced trying to secure their mask exemptions, as well as disgust over the indoctrination and dumbing down of the curriculum.

SPEECH AT SCHOOL BOARD SPECIAL MEETING

Jen called the board and officers to account for mask wearing double standards. A pro board speaker who was not wearing a mask was given no verbal warnings, not stopped from from speaking, nor escorted out by police, yet the other speakers who masked slipped were stopped and given warning. Jen then gave her speech on a multitude of topics that all have a common theme: the school board is not listening to the parents or giving any weight to their rights or concerns.
