VOICES: River City, Episode 186: Natomas Unified loves fascists

A Natomas Unified School District high school had a college-credit civics teacher so well loved that they advertised a student-made video about him on their website.

 Last spring, that same teacher was voted to deliver the commencement speech to the graduating class. 

But today? 

Today, Superintendent Chris Evans has scrubbed that teacher’s video from the website, posting instead a 30-minute interview he held with a far-right agitator who once said that Jews owned the banks. 

We’re joined by equity educator Sonia Lewis to discuss the ridiculous story of how a Sacramento school district sided with proto-fascist agitators from Project Veritas in smearing one of the district’s most well loved teachers

We also touch on what Sacramento media got wrong in covering this ridiculous story. 

Thanks for listening, defund the police and, as always:
