Officials in several Idaho school districts were caught in an undercover video discussing different ways to bypass the state’s ban on teaching critical race theory in public schools.
The video was released Wednesday by the organization Accuracy in Media and features Idaho school officials explaining how they bypassed the state’s ban on critical race theory and social-emotional learning by teaching the same concepts under a different name.
“Social-emotional learning, we can’t say that here anymore. It’s mental health,” Cindy Dion, a district instructional coach for the Nampa school district in northern Idaho, said in the undercover video.
