Brevard County School Superintendent Blackburn blocks parents from being actively involved


Brevard County School Superintendent  Blackburn blocks parents from being actively involved in decisions that impact their children’s education.

Parents ROCK Brevard, (Right Of Choice for our Kids) , is a parent group focused on direct, impactful, decision-making for our children’s education in Brevard County Schools. Mr and Mrs Boone, are members.

Hamilton and Penny Boone are the ONLY parents in Brevard County to have gone through the Book Review process; a process that exposed parents’ powerlessness in selecting age proper material for their children’s education.

Mr Blackburn decided that a hand-picked  group of BCS staff, by him to review this process was in order…minus any parents. A sham survey was sent via Edline, which was designed to get the answers that were pro Brevard School admin and anti-parent. Of note, my wife and I, as well as many other parents did not receive the sham survey

Having a unique perspective and being a parent of a high school student, Mr Boone thought that Mr Blackburn, who touts “wanting parents involved”, would jump at the chance to have him and his experience  join his hand-picked group. Not so fast!

Since April 1st, Mr Boone had sent multiple emails and made multiple calls to Mr Blackburn, asking to be part of Mr Blackburn’s select group. Being ever the Elite, Mr Blackburn did not answer any email or call of this parent trying to be involved. Finally, after 2 months of no reply and a sham survey, Mr Blackburn finally answered Mr Boone’s request ; NO!

As Mr Blackburn’s recent Elite and dictatorial actions prove, his agenda for Brevard County Schools will be autocratic, anti-parent, and by extension, anti-student. Now I understand the school walk outs and demonstrations in south Florida against Mr Blackburn.

Mr Blackburn is anti-parent, anti-student and needs to go.


Parents ROCK Brevard

The philosophy of the classroom for one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next.

  1. Autocratic, anti-parent control depriving parents of the UNALIENABLE RIGHTS to raise “our” own children with “our” OWN moral values. Outrageous! 268 U.S. 510 (1925)Pierce v. Society of Sisters (at page 534, 535):”Under the doctrine of Meyer v. Nebraska, 262 U.S. 390, we think it entirely plain that the Act of 1922 unreasonably interferes with the liberty of parents and guardians to direct the upbringing and education of children (page 535) under their control. As often heretofore pointed out, rights guaranteed by the Constitution may not be abridged… The fundamental theory of liberty upon which all governments in this Union repose excludes any general power of the State to standardize its children by forcing them to accept instruction from public teachers … The child is not the mere creature of the State; those who nurture him and direct his destiny have the right, coupled with the high duty, to recognize and prepare him for additional obligations.
    Your are clearly correct Mr. C. Hamilton Boone!


    • Absolutely correct..and he was a Progressive!
      Very telling quote…

      “Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism and every American public school is a school of humanism. What can the Theistic Sunday schools, meeting for an hour, once a week and teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five-day program of humanistic teaching?”

      John Dewey,
      father of progressive education.
