District administrator calls for ‘privileged white voices’ to be dismissed from curriculum plans in California
A California district administrator involved in overseeing curriculum, Samia Shoman, called for “privileged White voices” to be removed from influencing against a far-left ethnic studies curriculum.
Shoman oversees curriculum in the San Mateo Union High School district as manager of English learners and academic support programs. The email was dated March 2021 and was obtained via public record request by Zachor Legal.
Shoman contacted the California state superintendent, Tony Thurmond, in March 2021. Shoman blasted “white voices” and said they should have no part in influencing the curriculum.
“We urge the [state board of education] not to give in to the pressures and influences of political lobbyists, racist & privileged white voices, and individuals,” she wrote.
Another issue Shoman took up with the proposed ethnic studies curriculum was the idea of “multiple perspectives.”
“The proposed revisions privileges terms like ‘multiple perspectives,’ ‘diversity,’ ‘all students’ and ‘broad range of groups’ undermining the primary focus on the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) communities that compose over 80 percent of California’s student population.”
Shoman went on to call for a more extreme version of the proposed Black Lives Matter curriculum lesson.
“[E]ven in the African American lesson on the Black Lives Matter movement, which is a direct response white supremacy fails to call out and analyze racism and systemic oppression,” she said.
