Big bucks in sowing division

cash 100-dollar billA cultural issues writer says most parents don't realize that they are paying to fund racial division in their kids' schools.

The Naperville, Illinois School District 203 recently paid Dena Nicole Simmons $10,500, or $175 a minute, to have her tell its white faculty members that if they were not "anti-racist," then they were "racist." The Federalist points out that in one hour, the "anti-racism" consultant earned the equivalent of about two months salary for some teachers in the school district.

Laurie Higgins, cultural issues writer for the Illinois Family Institute, says it was a way to exploit racial tensions.

"There's a lot of profiteers out there to profit on advancing critical race theory," she notes. "They all put their own little spin on it, because they have to set themselves apart somehow. But all it is is profiting from maintaining racial division and the illusion of racism."

Higgins adds that most parents do not know that such outrageous assumptions are presented during teacher development days nationwide.

"Community members need to file Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to find out what is going on during professional development opportunities and find out how much these events are costing," she insists. "They're paying to indoctrinate their own children with ideas that they think are destructive."

In the case of Naperville, the district skirted a FOIA request by stating the presentation was "intellectual property" and could not be released without permission.
