Undercover Video Shows Ohio Schools Teaching CRT and ‘Tricking’ Parents
By Madeline Leesman | January 23, 2023
A new undercover video unveiled by Accuracy in Media shows that school administrators in Ohio are finding ways to teach Critical Race Theory and “trick” parents into thinking that the subject is not being taught.
In one instance, Matthew Boaz, the executive director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in Upper Arlington, Ohio, was captured on video saying that “you can pass a bill that you can’t teach CRT in the classroom, but if you didn’t cover programming or you didn’t cover extracurricular activities or something like that, that message might still get out. Oops. There will be a way.”
“There’s more than one way to skin a cat,” he said, adding that the school “absolutely” has conversations going around surrounding social justice, inclusion, and equity.
“We have some parents that, you know, they don’t fully understand [the curriculum]. So, you know, it’s…when we ‘trick them,’ you know? ” Hilary Staten, an administrative assistant in Groveport, Ohio, was caught saying. This was in regards to parents who are concerned about CRT in their children’s curriculum.
