Secret School Board Meetings
A Rhode Island Mom filed a lawsuit after being blocked from a secretive meeting to discuss “antiracist” curriculum in her child’s school.
From Fox News. A Rhode Island mom filed a lawsuit Wednesday after she was blocked from attending “secret” meetings that were focused on antiracist ideology and should have been open to the public, allegations in a complaint said.
“I learned that my school had appointed a subcommittee to change the curriculum in the school under an anti-racist or equity lens – which is really just a radical ideology,” Nicole Solas, a senior fellow with Independent Women’s Forum, told Fox News Digital.
Upon discovering the meetings, Solas requested to join, but was told that “the board meetings aren’t open to the public.” The lawsuit was filed by The Goldwater Institute and alleged that blocking Solas from attending “public body” meetings violated Rhode Island’s Open Meetings Act….
“So what’s going on is that these schools are looking for ways to enforce their ideology, but they know it’s controversial. So they have to do it in a secret way because there will be public outcry if this happens in public,” Solas told Fox News Digital….
The board was “charged with advisory power… over matters of significant public interest,” said [Jon Riches of the Goldwater Institute]. “The board is also publicly funded with taxpayer dollars by the School Committee, and two members of the School Committee’s subcommittee on policy sit on the Board….”
