To the editor:

I just read that Mr. James Ford, a member of the State Board of Education, in a late night Tweet on Aug. 17 stated that “swing voters” aka “white moderates” aka “white supremacy”……

Here in Davie County our board of education, superintendent, and all the school’s teachers and staff are working hard to provide our county’s children the best education they can. And the state has a person on the State Board of Education with this attitude making decisions about our children’s’ education?

All I can ask is “How does this happen?”
