Brad Lovell of the Lakota school board in Northern Cincinnati is an excellent example of what’s wrong with public education. Likely wherever you are reading this, you have your version of a Brad Lovell type. You wonder why the school board never listens, and when they do, they give you appeasement answers, never really dealing with the actual problem. When for instance, there are radical activists who push transexual bathrooms in a public education setting, and the school board never shows an inclination to deal with it or to go along with it and expect the community to live with their decision as it falls on deaf ears, you can know that for people like Brad, he’s using the school board to protect his nest eggs. Brad’s wife, for example, is a teacher at Lakota. From his position on the board, he can protect her job and benefits in many indirect ways as a member of the school board, while building up his portfolio for a job like he just landed with Sycamore schools, just across town from Lakota as a Director of Business Operations. This is ironic because he recently made it clear on the board that he wanted to blow all the reserve money at Lakota and to spend it into oblivion on completely useless renovations so that he could push another tax increase. The school board punted this year on it, likely due to the election this fall, but Brad loves to spend money and has a big progressive mindset regarding public education, which other schools love, like Sycamore. But Sycamore wouldn’t have known Brad from a hole in the ground had he not been a school board member in good standing with the teacher’s union at Lakota, which has provided him with a great networking opportunity to exploit.
You could go to virtually any school board in the United States and see the same behavior from the school board. School boards were designed to be volunteer services by the community to manage their local school systems. Still, with the big international trade unions running the majority of the employees, community volunteers are often not equipped to deal with the political influences of these radical unions. The union tactics are usually enough to keep good people from running. That usually means what you get is someone like Brad Lovell, who wants a job in education and will do anything and endure everything to have it. If the political pressures mean he needs to be a big-time progressive, then he’ll do it. People like these types often tell themselves they are doing all this for their children, but the truth is, they love the public adulation and the feeling of community that all liberals enjoy. That sense of community that liberal people crave like a blanket at night to hide under from the monsters they think is in their closet. They are big spenders of other people’s money, and when people complain, they do nothing about the complaints. Their real goal is to get the next big education job and show the system itself that they can be trusted to keep all the secrets in such places as public schools.
I could name off many cases over the years where a teacher or administrator would send naked pictures of themselves to students they fell in love with. It happens more than you’d like to believe. It’s always a frustrating mystery why school boards sit on their hands and do nothing about it. Well, people like Brad don’t want to screw up their next big gig like going to Sycamore for a job as a “business director.” The goal of most school board candidates is to make friends and keep the image of the school on the high side. Not to protect the students from predatory teachers or the eventualities of financial collapse because the teachers can’t live within a budget and always look to the school board to rubber-stamp everything. Brad is on the record to be a tax increase supporter and active one. So that makes him a member of the club in the school system and an attractive prospect at Sycamore. They protect their own once it’s been established who they are. Brad has managed to market himself as one of “them” since his election to the board in 2017.
When a teacher or administrator gets in trouble with a student over sex, or other bad behavior, it is nearly impossible to fire them. Instead, they reshuffle the deck in public education and move them to a different district. After all, there’s not much difference between Sycamore, Lakota, Fairfield, or Cincinnati Public. Young parents are not quite wise to the world’s ways think there are differences, which is why they buy homes in Lakota instead of downtown Cincinnati. Still, all government schools are rackets built only to support progressive causes, like Critical Race Theory and very high incomes for those who play along, like Brad Lovell, for a good paycheck and a chance to be someone in life. What business is there in Sycamore for an Operations Director? The product is our children. Schools don’t sell anything; they just take, take, take from those who produce things in the world. What is meant by a Director of Business Development is someone who can set the image of the school into something that can get the subsequent tax increase passed. And Brad needed to take a job like that before he ruined himself by trying to push Lakota through a levy increase. A few failures at the voting booth often destroy the brands of the administrators guilty of supporting tax increases for quite a long time.
The critical thing to know is that this is the nature of the game for school boards, so when you wonder why they never get involved in problems like transexual bathrooms or critical race theory, and your cries fall on deaf ears, now you know why. The school board people themselves don’t take money for the jobs. Still, they use the positions to build them up for other things later, like a nice, high-paying administrative job that is just a token position to justify another tax increase on property owners. That is the aim of the teacher unions, which are very committed to abolishing private property as a communist goal from the beginning. Most teachers in these public-school unions aren’t sitting around reading Karl Marx. But where else can they make six figures with their worthless skills? And where else could someone like Brad Lovell be considered an “administrator” of any worth? Government jobs are done for the dreary average who surrender thought to the system. Those employees aren’t asking questions about ideology so long as they are getting paid within the system. And that’s why Brad will never listen to concerned parents as a Lakota school board member. Because across town during the day, he is one of the paid stooges who is making big money off the public education system. And he won’t do anything to jeopardize that job, which is why they picked him. It doesn’t matter if a race war started in the school provoked by inaction by the board. Brad and the board might answer an email with sympathies. But they won’t change the behavior, ever, because they work and live off the system itself. And they like the results a lot more than they like your kids. That’s why nothing ever happens and why school boards will continue to not listen to concerned parents and will continue to lay down and lick the feet of the corrupt teacher unions without ever a challenge.
