Oh no you don’t, Rev. Kyev Tatum.

Tatum should not attempt to make Fort Worth ISD pay ransom for his mistakes.

He has documentation as does the district that he was told “do not proceed” with his youth work program.

He should not lead families into placing blame and responsibility on the district.

He told them their kids would be paid $8.25 an hour. He knew it was not done with the district’s OK.

He owes these kids, not FWISD.

Stop using the “people of color” card.
