School District Tried To Bypass Anti-Racism Rule

( As a Rhode Island school district continues discussions about how to indoctrinate children on matters relating to race, all public access to meetings has been revoked and parents are being left in the dark about what their children are being taught.

After months of outcry over school boards all over the country embracing Critical Race Theory and teaching young children that all white people are racist, the South Kingstown School District in Rhode Island has banned parents from taking part in any public meetings. The move was so egregious that a mother has asked the state’s attorney general to get involved.

Nonviolent Schools RI, a left-wing organization, was hired by the South Kingstown School District to host a new “anti-racism book club” that promoted various books aimed at children that promote Critical Race Theory. Not only that, but the school board asked the organization to host 25 weekly meetings of what’s known as a “BIPOC Advisory Board” – which is a group that advocates for “Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.”

The point of the weekly sessions isn’t clear. American schools already do not discriminate against non-white people.

However, the meetings should fall under the Open Meetings Act of Rhode Island, which means parents should be given access. Lawyers representing mother Nicola Solas warned the Office of the Attorney General in a letter last week that refusing access to these meetings is against the law.

Solas is being represented by the Rhode Island Stephen Hopkins Center for Civil Rights and the Goldwater Institute of Arizona, and is calling on the AG to force the School Committee to allow parents into the board meetings.

A public finding will reportedly be issued at the conclusion of the investigation into the matter, but in the meantime, what are parents meant to do about their children being exposed to far-left extremism and racist, radical political indoctrination?
