Description

When parents at a predominately Black elementary school in Louisville, KY's "West End" contacted Dear JCPS co-founder Gay Adelmann to ask her to advocate for them, JCPS and PTA leaders conspired to fabricate "evidence" against her to slow or stop them from gaining any traction. The parents simply wanted to keep the Waldorf-based program that was promised to their children just two years earlier, and they objected to being manipulated and seeing the truth distorted into lies to justify why district leaders were reneging on their promise.

In attendance at the emergency district-wide PTA board meeting are Heather Wampler, former 15th District PTA President Autumn Neagle, Former JCPS Parent Relations Specialist and PTA Parliamentarian Sharon Whitworth, current 15th District PTA President Eddie Squires, Parent John Buie, former Manual PTSA President Pinky Jackson, Nikki Hockman , newly elected 15th District PTA Secretary Ben Kolb (JCPS Board member Chris Kolb's brother), and others.

Heard on the second recording at the 1:18:36 minute mark, which took place following a parent info meeting the next night at Maupin Elementary, are Asst. Sup. Joe Leffert, (now retired) Maupin Principal Maria Holmes, and Leffert's assistant, Kim Kent, as well as some Maupin parents who will remain nameless unless they choose to identify themselves.
