What Are Schools Hiding from Parents?
In Fairfax County, administrators and teachers are using “advisory” period, which used to be treated as a study hall, to provide divisive SEL lessons. The region’s assistant superintendent has just informed me that parents are not permitted to opt-out their children from these lessons.
Last week, I heard about a “white privilege” video and lesson (slides below) at our middle school during advisory period. In the video, non-white students discuss the ways in which they are victims of racism. Meanwhile the white student defines white privilege and says she feels guilty for having it.
The school’s principal is making parents, like me, jump through quite a few administrative hoops to attain access to the material to which they are exposing our children. Not only is the district in violation of the state’s Executive Order One, banning divisive concepts like CRT in K-12 education, but they are also violating the federal government’s Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment.
What is your child’s school hiding from you? Are they forthcoming with curriculum materials?
