We first reported that a teacher came forward who explained the unethical practices used by the casinos to get teacher support for Proposition A. Now Marjorie Ball, a substitute student-teacher supervisor for the Carl Junction school district has also come forward claiming she was used by the casinos to promote Prop A when she thought she was filling out a survey from the state. KOAM in Joplin interviewed her and the fist teacher to come forward,
“I just thought [the survey] was something that supported education. Obviously I support schools; I support education. I guess the hidden part was the casinos part.”
There is no doubt that other educators across the state have suffered the same unethical treatment by the casinos and they too are being used to expand gambling in the name of education. As more and more educators speak out against Proposition A, it looks like its really just Yes for Casinos First.
