Is this what an employer wants in a good employee? Is this a model for managers to follow? Is this what you hope you are? Actually, this is on a poster in every classroom in SD271 called “Portrait of a Graduate.” How could anyone associate these qualities as Marxist or Communist or jump up and down calling out the district for ‘indoctrination.’ If this is indoctrination, then I say: Good job SD271.
