This was a comment on an article about Johnston hiring Louis Fountain as its new director of equity, inclusion and belonging. Fountain shared bigoted social media posts against black conservatives and conservative women.

“Hiring someone who is bigoted to help stamp out bigotry in your school is a special kind of stupid. Surely Johnston schools can do better than this.”
