David Ryan is the self-described “Doctor” and Super(awful)intendent of the occupied district formerly known as SAU 16. Pour yourselves a large serving of your adult beverage of choice and check out his latest proclamation:
We are sending an invitation reminder about this Thursday evening’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Information Night to be held in the auditorium at Exeter High School from 5:30 – 7:00 PM. This will be the first of several sessions where you can learn more about how social justice ideals are being shared and learned in our schools and community. This information session will feature a presentation on the fundamental work that is taking place and attendees will be able to submit questions prior to or during the presentation. This initial information session will only feature information sharing with no live public input or public comment. We invite you to submit a question ahead of time so that the presentation can be tailored to answer as many questions as possible. Attendees will also be invited to submit questions during the information session. For community members who are unable to attend in person, the event will be livestreamed by Blue Hawk Media.
In order to prompt some thinking or questions about our work, we offer the following definitions/explanations of recent topics that have captured the attention of the public and media. We wish to thank our neighbors, SAU 17, for sharing the following information for our purposes:
Critical Race Theory Defined
Britannica defines CRT as an “intellectual movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of color. Critical race theorists hold that the law and legal institutions in the United States are inherently racist insofar as they function to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites, especially African Americans”.
NH’s New Divisive Concepts Law
Recently the NH Legislature adopted new laws that address Divisive Concepts being taught in public schools (RSA 354-A:29-34 and RSA 193:40). These laws are new and the administration and staff have been working collaboratively to comply with the legislation. Here are some key points to be aware of as we start the new school year:
Schools are still permitted to discuss, as a part of the larger course of academic instruction, the historical existence of facts, topics, and subjects identified in the new law (including prohibited divisive concepts). Schools are also permitted to teach about the existence of racism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination.
Schools are prohibited from using programs, including classroom instruction, stating that people:
- are inherently superior or inferior,
- are inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, (consciously or unconsciously),
- should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment,
- cannot or should not treat others equally and/or without regard to a protected characteristic. (RSA 193:40 FAQ Document)
As our information night and subsequent evenings together will show, we are working collaboratively to ensure that all of our students grow as critical and free thinkers, that all of our community members feel valued and included, and that all perspectives are welcomed and respected. Our work is to ensure that all of this exists within the boundaries of the law and a highly rigorous academic program.
We look forward to receiving your questions and seeing you on Thursday evening.

In other words, We The People, the tax-paying rubes who are funding this unmitigated balderdash, are not allowed to opine publicly as to the impact that his reign of terror is having on our children.
And how convenient that he scheduled his racist brainwashing session during one of Exeter High School sport’s biggest fundraising events. Ain’t he a peach? Keep all of those parents involved in the fundraiser out of the anti-white meeting and silence the ones who attend? To paraphrase one of my favorite comedians: “I don’t think so, Scooter.”
If you’re reading this post and feeling discouraged, I suggest you read about the recent Superintendent’s resignation in Ludlow, MA – yes, Massachusetts.
Ludlow Superintendent resigns after months of pressure. School Board members join him in vicious public attacks on parents.
An unbelievable display: Using all the leftist talking points to demean and demonize parents during consecutive School Board meetings – after complaints about radical agenda in middle school
The “doctor” must really like poking the bear, too, because, in his e-mail, he thanks SAU 17 for “sharing.” Caring is sharing, amirite?
Well, maybe the good “doctor” is suffering from a senior moment (no offense to seniors) because the SAU 17 brain surgeons (LOL. See what I did there) recently had a grandmother arrested at their board meeting over a mask:
Yeah, the funny thing about that: there was a huge backlash and write-in campaign to get selectwoman Kim Farah ousted over this incident, and they succeeded.
Wanna hear an even funnier thing? The victim of the “Danville Tyranny,” Kate Bossi, spoke at the SAU 16 board meeting on August 3rd. I bet the “doctor” and his groveling sycophants (apologies to Melissa Litchfield) didn’t even notice.
He’s quite the strategist, this little “doctor” with the Napoleon complex. Like Napoleon, let’s banish him. But please don’t banish him to Elba. I like Elba.
