Forest Hills School District to Introduce New ‘Ban Anti-Racism’ Resolution

The Forest Hills School Board is set to introduce new legislation that will ban “anti-racism training and teaching” at a meeting on Wednesday evening. Titled “Resolution to Create a Culture of Kindness and Equal Opportunity for All Students and Staff,” the resolution seeks for FHSD to “declare its official opposition to the use of training, programs and ‘a race and/or identity-based methodology in public education’. In a press release announcing the meeting, the school district said, “FHSD will not use critical race theory, intersectionality, identity, or anti-racism curriculum for student education or any staff training. With this statement, FHSD reiterates that: ● Schools may not use race, socioeconomic class, religion, gender identity, sex, ethnicity, or culture as a consideration when hiring or administering academic programs or assessment systems ● Neither schools nor instructors or guest speakers should engage students in class or complete assignments that require, guide, or pressure the student to view their race, socio-economic class, religion, gender identity, sex, sexual preferences, ethnicity, or culture as a disability or label to stereotype the student as having certain biases. or other unsavory moral characteristics or beliefs based on those immutable characteristics. ● Schools should not discipline differently on the basis of race, socio-economic class, religion, gender identity, sex, sexual preference, ethnic origin or culture. ● Schools should not engage in stereotyping based on race, socio-economic class, religion, gender identity, sex, sexual preference, ethnic origin or culture, including attribution of character traits, values, moral and ethical codes, privileges, status or beliefs. ● Schools should not force individuals to admit privilege or oppression, or to “reflect”, “deconstruct” or “confront” their identity based on their race, socio-economic class, religion, identity gender, sex, sexual preference, ethnicity or culture.” The proposed resolution comes less than a month after the district’s Diversity Day was canceled, to which students responded with an organized walkout. Wednesday will be at 6:30 p.m. at Nagle Middle School (1500 Nagel Road).
