Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) is forcing parents to sign a form similar to a non-disclosure agreement in order to view their Critical Race Theory based curriculum.
Parents are only permitted to view the curriculum in person — and cannot broadcast, download, photograph, or record any portion of it.
The Daily Caller reports, “as part of LCPS’ broader equity agenda, the district spent approximately $7,700 to become a ‘licensed user’ of Second Step Programs, a branch of the left-leaning non-profit organization Committee for Children. According to a copy of the NDA-style form reviewed by the Daily Caller, ‘eligible parents’ at LCPS must sign the document to view the Second Step curriculum.”
The form states that “I understand that the Authorized Presentation of Second Step Materials I am about to view is not a public event, and that copying, broadcast or recording of any kind is not permitted,” the form reads. “I agree to comply with the terms of the above Special License.”
According to the Caller’s report, Second Step is dedicated to “diversity, equity, and inclusion” and becoming an “anti-racist organization.” Part of Second Step’s curriculum addresses “anti-racism,” a term coined by activist Ibram X. Kendi. It also creates a “common language” to “create lasting systematic change.”
The school district has already made headlines multiple times this year, first for their heated school board meetings on Critical Race Theory and the suspension of a gym teacher who refused to use students “preferred pronouns.”
Students in Loudoun County walked out of class in protest on Tuesday over the district covering up multiple sexual assaults by a “gender non-conforming” boy in girl’s restrooms at two of their high schools.
The father of one of the teenage girls who was victimized, Scott Smith, was smeared as a “domestic terrorist” after he was arrested at a school board meeting for speaking out. The school board falsely claimed that there was “no record of assaults occurring in our restrooms.”
