ECISD, Odessa, TX, has once again approved migrant students to travel to Washington, D.C., to attend the Experience in Democracy Leadership Conference, which is aimed at 9th-12th grade students. The school was founded by Bert Corona, a radical, Reconquista-minded, self-admitted communist who
•Founded Hermandad Mexicana Nacional, the Mexican nationalist organization which was embroiled in the Bob Dornan election fraud issue in Orange County
•Served on the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Communist School
•Active as an organizer of the Mexican American Political Association
•Responsible for the formation of the Brown Berets
•Taught part-time at Cal State L.A. without a college degree and fomented violence when any attempt was made to have him removed including arson, tire-slashing, cutting of brake lines
ECISD’s attempt to white-wash this action this year includes their providing the students “curriculum showing a more conservative point of view before they go to Washington and also while there, before they attend the more left-leaning parts of the event,” which is an admission by ECISD that they are exposing children to a radical environment. They have stated the district nor the students will incur any expense although at least travel expenses were required to be paid by the district in previous years. The tuition, room, and meals are included in the fee paid by Title 1c funds. The travel expenses are not covered according to the school’s on-line brochure. This petition requests that ECISD School Board of Trustees publicly release the amount and source of travel funds, rescind the approval for travel, and in the future regard federal funds, which come from the same taxpayers’ pockets as district funds, with as much restraint as they regard district funds.
