DAYTON, Ohio (TND) — School district officials in the Dayton, Ohio area can be heard describing on undercover video how they would circumvent a proposed ban on teaching critical race theory circulating through the state legislature.
“There’s ways around anything. It all goes back to how you dress the window,” Kettering City School District Student Services Supervisor Rick Earley can be heard saying on undercover video.
The investigation from nonprofit watchdog Accuracy in Media (AIM) follows others in the state that have uncovered teachers’ willingness to circumvent proposed laws against teaching material that focuses on race, class or privilege.
AIM has also found school officials in other states, which already established CRT teaching bans into law, have also sought to circumvent the prohibition.
