You'll only know if you are in close contact with your children about what is happening in their classrooms. Listen to how they describe their classes and to the words they use. Are they coming home with "new" words? Are their explanations beginning to show bias?

Just attending a board meeting of the Richland 2 School District should put you on the edge of your chairs. Listen for words like discrimination, racism, injustice, equity, inclusion, cultural diversity. 

Pay attention to who is speaking and whether the speaker is making sense to you. Do some speakers use many words but don't really say anything?
