Why Would a Trustee Lie to Us?

Fact-checking Joyce Foreman's statements on the 2015 DISD bond
By Eric Celeste |


If you’ve read any articles about the proposed bond program on the ballot this November, you have undoubtedly read a quote or two from School Board Trustee Joyce Foreman. She has been very vocal in her opposition to the bond, and she always gets quoted. This is because the media want to “cover both sides” of the issue, and she is the most vocal opponent of the DISD bond.

Actually, that’s not accurate: Joyce Foreman is the ONLY vocal opponent to the DISD bond, at least among elected officials in Dallas.

Why? I think it’s because she’s lying about crucial facts about the bond. Read my full fact-check of her statements here.
