The Cost of DEI/CRT

You know these initials; right? DEI? CRT?

DEI? Diversity, Equity, Inclusion

CRT? Critical Race Theory (and Culturally-Relevant Teaching)

Check out yesterday's article in The Epoch Times titled, "California Spent $500 Million on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Training, Report Reveals"

The Center for Organizational Research and Education (CORE) said, "“In recent years, the concept of critical race theory and its variants—often camouflaged as more generic ‘diversity, equity, and inclusion’ (DEI) activities, has entered the national spotlight, and infiltrated publicly-funded entities.”

How much has Richland 2 spent on DEI? At every meeting you hear DEI more and more. Even in the Dress Code revision that is proposed. 

Richland 2's DEI effort is led by Mrs. Helen Grant, who prefers to be called Dr. Grant. Now, she doesn't have a Ph.D. or even an Ed.D. She's a lawyer, holding at J.D. degree. She is the only lawyer I have ever heard of in my entire lifetime who wants to be called Dr. ____. 

Is that privilege? What "privilege" is it? 

Is it equity to be called whatever you want? Is it inclusion? Diversity?
