Parents and board members are at odds over a “Culture of Kindness” resolution in the Forest Hills School District.
The resolution, passed last summer, has been criticized by some in the community for promoting racism and hatred.
At a recent board meeting, several parents called for the resolution to be rescinded, saying that it will make it difficult for them to vote in favor of an upcoming tax levy.
The resolution states that the district will not utilize critical race theory, intersectionality, identity, or anti-racism curriculum for student education or staff training.
While the resolution is currently being kept from implementation due to a lawsuit, some parents argue that it still impacts their families, including their children who identify as part of the LGBT+ community.
Board members are split on the issue, with some calling for the resolution to be rescinded and others defending it.
The discussion has been tabled until the next board meeting.
