What Do I Do, Now? PART 3: UN-ENROLL, NOW!!

The dilemma for all who have children in the public school system is what to do, now? Parents’ Rights in Education will not presume to dictate to all families the answer to that question.

Because every situation is different. Every student is different, and every state and school district are different. Here’s the question we are asking you. What are you willing to expose your child to? Where do you draw the line? If this were just a question of mask or no mask it would be simple, however it is so much more…

For those who follow Parents’ Rights In Education, you know we believe the heart of a school is the curriculum. With the new addition of racial teaching a la Black lives Matter and Critical Race Theory, the decision just became easier! 

We have reported Oregon schools are actively supporting BLM, to the point they are encouraging parents to contribute to the organization and vote Democrat. Not only does it promote extreme political bias, it is illegal. Across the nation there is evidence of political extremism promoted by public schools.

I just received an article from one of our contacts in ARIZONA, Glenbard School District 87. Cedra Crenshaw, mother of four, has a daughter who will be starting her junior year in the fall at Glenbard South High School.

“I'm not against liberal views in the schools,” she said. “The problem is there's no balance.”

The latest offense, according to Crenshaw, is a YouTube video created by students called 'We Stand With Black Lives' that School Supt. David Larson distributed to parents and students while school buildings have been closed.

One of the links in the video's YouTube comments section belongs to what appears to be a Black Lives Matter (BLM) resource page. After taking a deep dive, Crenshaw found links to political organizations, such as the American Civil Liberties Union and Free Palestine.

“Within each of those links are dozens and dozens of other links and then those links go to dozens and dozens of other links,” Crenshaw said. “I spent about 10 hours digging. It's a huge tree of links.”

What concerned her most were links requesting contributions to fund gas masks for protestors.

“I don't know of any peaceful protesters who need a gas mask,” she said. “That's potential criminal activity.”

School district policy handbook, states political activity is prohibited under Section P2:105: ''No board member or employee shall intentionally use any district property or resources in connection with any political activity.” 

In an e-mail dated June 25, Crenshaw included all of the links she’d found and demanded Larson retract the YouTube video. But she didn’t receive the compliant response hoped for.

That same day, Larson replied: 

“Many thanks for taking the time to draft this note.  Please understand that we on occasion send student work and projects that are artistic and creative in nature out on Glenbard News.  Our understanding of the phrase Black Lives Matter was that it was a literal interpretation of the statement, not an endorsement of an organization. Know that D87 does not formally endorse non-educationally related organizations. I understand how this could be misunderstood. The attached files and videos were apparently sent out on YouTube by someone else. Please contact me should you have any future questions.”

Although Crenshaw had included members of the board of education and Glenbard school principals in her e-mail to the superintendent, they did not reply.
