9 months ago

Parents express their concerns to the Kettering School board regarding a recent report by Accuracy in Media (AIM). Kettering Supervisor of Student Services, Rick Earley, was recorded voicing intent to surreptitiously implement Critical Race Theory (CRT) and to withhold student information regarding gender identity issues from parents. Link to AIM report: https://www.aim.org/aim-investigates/crtdayton/

The school board provided a public statement prepared ahead of time. The statement stated that Accuracy In Media (AIM) had taken Rick Earley comments out of context. Stated that the school district does not teach CRT and Stated that the school will follow Title IX guidelines allowing boys to use girls’ bathrooms and girls to use boys’ bathrooms if they identify as transgender. The statement stated that the school must follow the law. Note that recent Title IX changes that add LGBTQ protections were recently added by the Biden administration and are not considered law and have been blocked from enforcement by the Ohio Attorney General. https://www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/Media/News-Releases/July-2022/AG-Yost-Sues-Biden-Administration-for-Threatening
