More on CRT

Okay, so by now you probably know that CRT is short for Critical Race Theory?

Ever hear of Coach David Flynn?

Any idea where Dedham, Mass. is?  (15 mi. SW of Boston)

Does this headline get your attention?

Federal Court Hearing in Civil Lawsuit Challenging Firing of High School Coach for Objecting To BLM/Critical Race Theory

Check out this case, behind which is Judicial Watch. Coach Flynn, father of a daughter in seventh grade, got tossed from his coaching gig because he objected to subject matter in his daughter's ancient history class.

Federal Court hearing - Monday, April 26, 2021 3:15PM EDT

If you hurry, you might even be able to register to attend the court hearing online. See the link in the article.

If you're mad that that school district went after the parent, think what could be happening to the student's grade for that class.

Do you withhold criticism of Richland 2 policies out of fear of retaliation or retribution against yourself or one or more of your children?

By the way, I'm still laughing about the day in Illinois that the Sheriff thought he could scare me into revealing the names of deputies who were leaking information to me. Under subpoena I appeared in Federal Court on my pro se Motion to Quash his subpoena. And the judge granted my Motion! He told the sheriff's attorney that she was "just on a fishing expedition" (his words).

CRT is not "cathode ray tube"

Where does Richland 2 School District stand on CRT - Critical Race Theory?

I emailed the Board today (doggone it; I forgot to include the superintendent) to urge their reading of the following article. They won't reply to me (they never do) but, if you (parent, employer, taxpayer) write to them, they might. A couple of the board members might read the article.

Read this article titled "Parents Organize to Push Back Against Critical Race Theory"

You've heard all the buzzwords: equity, inclusion, oppression, culturally-responsive, systemic racism, injustice, over-discipline of black students, cohort, etc.

The District may still be buying Gloria Boutte's program, Culturally Relevant Pedagogy. Now there's a $100 word that ups the price-tag, no doubt.

The District recently responded to my FOIA Request for information about The 1619 Project. The District said it has no "documentation" that was responsive to my request. It took a FOIA Request to pry even that response out of them, after they disregarded a specific request at an October board meeting.

So I still don't know how many teachers are talking about The 1619 Project in a way that causes students to think that America was founded in 1619 due to slavery. 

If your child comes away from an online or in-person class with that nonsense, post a comment below and let your board members and the superintendent know how you feel.
