Drag Queen Controversy with Columbia Public Schools

Missouri’s GOP Attorney General has sent a second letter to Columbia Public Schools Superintendent Brian Yearwood regarding last Thursday’s drag queen controversy.

Attorney General Andrew Bailey says CPS Superintendent Dr. Brian Yearwood cares more about indoctrination than about education.

General Bailey writes, in part: “You have betrayed the trust and confidence of the parents who depend on you to educate their children.”

Yearwood has disputed the AG’s comments that last week’s performance from three drag queens was an ‘adult’ performance. Yearwood has also said that the school does not have control over the program at events organized by outside entities.
