Could it happen here?
A former assistant principal in an elementary school in Virginia is suing the school board there.
Are you familiar with the book, Courageous Conversations about Race, by Glenn E. Singleton? The rest of the book title is A Field Guide for Achieving Equity in Schools and Beyond. Any chance that that book has found its way to Richland County?
Wow! There is a strong clue to what the reader will find within its covers. The dreaded CRT!
Emily Mais was employed at the Agnor-Hurt Elementary School in Charlottesville, Va., which is in the Albemarle County School District. That's approximately 100 miles SSW of Loudoun County, Va., where parents have been on the warpath about Critical Race Theory for months.
Read the FoxNews article here. The headline is Former Virginia administrator sues school board, alleging racial harassment.
So much for engaging in a courageous conversations.
As you have heard at numerous Richland 2 school board meetings, "You have the right to your opinion."
What I heard when the board chair says that is, "You have the right to your opinion, even when it's wrong." Does anyone else hear it that way?
Apparently, Mais made the unforgivable mistake of using the term "colored people", rather than "people of color". The news article reports that Mais' attorney said that Mais apologized for a "slip of the tongue," but "Another teacher who was in that training began berating her in front of others".
What is wrong with people today? All the talk of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and some people are still so thin-skinned that they'll complain if a butterfly goes by in the wrong direction. And I'm not referring to Ms. Mais.
Good luck to Emily Mais. May she collect the big bucks from Albemarle County School District, and may they have to pay it from their own pockets and not out of insurance!
