Chairs Thrown at CBSD Meeting, and a New Starlet Joins

Dom Giordano, WPHT host and former teacher, has dedicated much of his daily show toward parents who are taking it into their own hands to push back against school boards that have a negative impact on their children. This has culminated in a weekly podcast on education, Readin', Writin', and Reason, which has allowed wonderful relationships to develop between Giordano, educators, and parents throughout the country who are speaking out against overbearing school boards.

First, Dom welcomes in Dana Hunter, President of the Central Bucks School District, back onto the Dom Giordano Program to tell us why a chair was thrown at a school board meeting this week. Hunter explains the situation, telling why debate elevated to a physical confrontation. Also, Hunter lays forth her district’s policy on how they determine which books are allowed in libraries, responding to a heated senate hearing yesterday featuring Senator John Kennedy grilling individuals in favor of explicit books in school libraries.

Then, Dom welcomes 13-year-old singer Stella Mabry, singer of new song Mean Girl, which calls out bullying in the younger generation, onto the podcast. Mabry explains why she decided to write a song about the situation she’s been dealing with at school, telling of the negative social implications of bullying for teenagers. Also, Mabry tells a little about herself, explaining why she started writing music, and previews what’s to come for her career moving forward.
