Crass Lawyers And Ungodly Behavior in Godley ISD
Show Notes

Marcy Galle is a Parent Advocate and Co-Founder of Families Engaged For Effective Education. She is a former city councilmember of Willow Park just north of Aledo, Texas. Marcy is an expert in public information requests, the Texas Open Meetings Act (TOMA) and the public education grievance process. When local ISDs lawyer up, she steps in to help families exercise their parental rights as outlined in the Texas Education Code

There is a pattern of ungodly behavior in Godley ISD where she has dealt with the administration, the school board, and superintendent shirking their responsibilities and circumventing the law by propping up their lawyers against parents. She is also advocating for parents in Joshua ISD, Fort Worth ISD and others. Parents are being denied their constitutional right to speak at school board meetings. Districts across Texas are deploying antagonistic and disrespectful tactics to dissuade parents from testifying at board meetings. They often go into closed session for 1-2 hours at the beginning of meetings making working parents wait until the closed sessions adjourn before hearing public testimonies. DeSoto ISD is another repeat offender of TOMA. 

Regarding the captive market of public school students fed into the predatory social-emotional learning cash cow for vendors, parents are benign denied their right to opt in or opt out of these experimental learning technologies and strategies. Marcy helps families understand the laws written to protect children and parents so they can be empowered with the law in order to fight lawlessness.
