UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio (WCMH) — Parents of students protested outside the Upper Arlington Board of Education special executive session Thursday, pleading with the board to not discipline an administrator who was recorded discussing critical race theory in school.
A video posted by a conservative self-proclaimed media watchdog shows the administrator, executive director of diversity, equity and inclusion Matthew Boaz, having a conversation related to critical race theory with two people who claimed to be interested in enrolling a student. The district said Wednesday the videos were recorded under false pretenses and Boaz did not know he was being recorded.
