MURRAY, Utah (KUTV) — Watchdog group Accuracy in Media has released a video featuring educators and administrators at several Utah school districts.
AIM claimed the video shows these educators explain how they get around the rules when it comes to teaching restricted content like critical race theory.
“Today’s installment of our investigation into public education takes us to the incredibly red, incredibly conservative state of Utah, where once again we found public school administrators who are more than happy to deceive parents, in order to push the principles associated with critical race theory,” said AIM’s Adam Guillette in the video.
The video was released several days ago and has been featured on a number of media outlets. The Utah State Board of Education took notice and announced an investigation.
“We are aware of recent allegations against several school districts regarding potential disregard for law or rule on divisive topics being taught within the school setting,” USBE said, in part, in a statement. “As the state’s oversight entity for all public education, USBE will review the allegations to determine what appropriate action is necessary.”
