Lack of transparency, dismissive teachers the ‘breaking point’ for parents, school choice advocates say
August 18, 2022
WASHINGTON — The school choice movement is growing rapidly amid ongoing discontent from parents who find themselves at odds with public school officials over a lack of transparency and other issues, school choice advocates say.
DeAngelis, the executive director at Educational Freedom Institute, expressed his support for the work of some state legislatures who have been considering bans on polarizing classroom content, such as critical race theory.
He warned, however, that videos from the group Accuracy In Media have emerged showing teachers apparently refusing to follow such laws where they have been enacted.
“They’re catching people with undercover journalism, the administrators and teachers saying ‘yeah we have a ban, but I’m just going to call CRT social-emotional learning,’ or ‘I’m just going to call it student mental health,’ and we’re going to incorporate the concepts even if it isn’t explicitly in the curriculum,” DeAngelis said.
