Will Forest Hills school board ban critical race theory, anti-racism? | #Education

The Forest Hills school board will vote Wednesday evening on a resolution that would ban critical race theory, intersectionality, identity and anti-racism curriculum from student instruction, staff training and hiring practices.

If it passes, teachers will not be allowed to give assignments that nudge students to consider their race, socioeconomic class, religion, gender identity, sex, sexual preference, ethnicity, or culture as derogatory, to force kids to “admit privilege of oppression,” or to reflect, deconstruct or confront their identities.

Critical rate theory is a college-level legal theory but critics believe it has influenced K-12 curriculum and policies around race, diversity and equity in Ohio’s K-12 schools

Administrators at Forest Hills, including outgoing superintendent Scot Prebles, have repeatedly said the theory is not included in the district’s curriculum. Prebles will leave the district next month to be superintendent of Bay Village City Schools near Cleveland, and Forest Hills’ board of education plans to hire a new school leader this month after announcing five finalists.
