When it was learned Tucson Unified Schools were flirting with Planned Parenthood, many parents and taxpayers reacted with passionate emails to the school board requesting they leave controversial and personal information for parents to teach. There must have been enough pushback to alarm not only Planned Parenthood, but Dr. Eric Schindler, the President and CEO of Child and Family Resources.
He circulated an email requesting his comrades let the district know that without Comprehensive Sex Ed (Planned Parenthood), Tucson students would be poor, may not learn to read by third grade, and may even be arrested! None of this makes sense because the large majority of adults reading this post did not receive CSE in school and are reading as we speak, have at least enough money to access the internet to read this post, and aren’t in jail because they are reading this post.
But facts don’t matter. What does matter is Dr. Schindler’s pay day. While he makes it sound like he really cares about kids and families, keep in mind he receives a lot of money from the federal government to administer CSE programs. Here is a Child and Family Services tax form from 2013:
Wow, lots of money in grants (you know, the “free” money from the government.) And here is Dr. Schindler’s income from the same year. Hopefully he can make ends meet:
2012 was also a very good year for Child and Family Services:
Dr. Schindler made a little more money in 2012:
We have yet to see whether Dr. Schindler’s efforts sway Tucson Unified school board. Will they choose protecting someone’s income over ethics?
