Twin Rivers Unified School District’s unethical treatment of a Black educator

Today we discuss the story of Jordan McGowan, a beloved history teacher at Rio Tierra Junior High who is being targeted by his school district. Mr McGowan was chair of the school’s History and Social Science Department, the boys basketball coach, and the advisor of the Black student union. Everyone loved him. 

So why is he in the process of being fired? We discuss. 

We also cover the horrific push by the region’s liberals to sweep our unhoused neighbors from the American River Parkway.  

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