“violated the Open Meetings Act as they discussed a racial agenda that was widely opposed by their constituents”
Two days ago, we ran a story about teachers in California who were told to hide Critical Race Theory materials from parents.
Now we are learning of a similar situation in Texas, involving school board members.
Luke Rosiak reports at the Daily Wire:
Grand Jury Indicts School Board Members For Alleged Secret Discussions About Racial Agenda
Two Texas school board members were indicted on charges that they violated the Open Meetings Act as they discussed a racial agenda that was widely opposed by their constituents.
Carroll Independent School District (CISD) president Michelle Moore and vice president Todd Carlton were indicted by a grand jury for texts involving the school district’s “Cultural Competence Action Plan,” The Texan reported.
The board is required to meet in public, but the texts allegedly involved enough school board members that it may have amounted to a secret, unofficial meeting under the law.
In December, a judge separately instituted a restraining order prohibiting the school officials from moving forward with work related to a District Diversity Council, which in August issued a 34-page plan that included a proposal for racial training in schools that would cost $425,000 the first year, including $35,000 for speakers.
The cultural competence plan called for hiring “a Director of Equity and Inclusion” and “embed[ding] diversity and inclusion training for students as an ‘enrollment to graduation’ process in all grades.”
Rosiak points out that the hiring of a diversity administrator likely would have led to the implementation of Critical Race Training.
Eric Lendrum of American Greatness emphasizes the same point:
CISD had previously attempted to implement conditions recommended by a report from a “District Diversity Council” in August of last year. The report, among other things, suggested hiring a “Director of Equity and Inclusion,” “embedding diversity and inclusion training for students as an ‘enrollment to graduation’ process in all grades,” and spending over $425,000 on “racial training,” including approximately $35,000 to bring speakers to school. A judge in December ultimately issued a restraining order halting the district’s efforts to implement these plans.
The fact that educators in two different states have been caught secretly plotting to implement Critical Race Training in the same week should ring every parental alarm bell that exists.
The left knows that parents don’t want this, but leftists are advancing their agenda anyway, in secret.
