I’ve known about the 1619 Project for quite awhile. It is fake history written to make people think America was racist from the start and therefore must be abolished. It is Critical Race Theory meant only to divide people by race. The videos of the kids who spoke at the District 87 School Board Board prove that, they think they were taught critical thinking when they were indoctrinated instead of educated.
If parents aren’t disgusted, what is it going to take?
In July of 2020 I sent FOIA requests to both Unit 5 and District 87. Proving I can be totally guilty of typing the wrong thing, my FOIA said 1629 instead of 1619. District 87 knew what I meant however, this was the response I received:
I guess I should have asked again if the 1619 project was in the curriculum, it was stupid of me to believe it wasn’t. Since they claimed only a slide mentioned it, they were hiding information.
Barry Reilly must have thought it was a good idea to gather a bunch of students to speak at last week’s board meeting. That was a huge fail since it was obvious kids in AP History are being taught the 1619 garbage. It is also obvious the response to my FOIA request was deceptive.
I sent a copy of the 2020 FOIA request and the response to Colin Manahan for an explanation. Turns out Colin is on vacation and then retiring, of course with a fat pension.
I received a response instead from Barry Reilly:
The Illinois FOIA law does not state “specific” documents must be requested. Evidently Reilly thinks I should go through their files and textbooks and then FOIA what I find. https://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/ilcs3.asp?ActID=85
I did a search on both websites for “1619 Project”. Both Unit 5 and District 87 produced no results. Since District 87 teaches it, Unit 5 needs to prove they aren’t. I’m betting their AP History curriculum is the same.
Do parents understand why your local schools hide the truth?
Your kids are being taught lies. Check your property tax bill to see how much it costs you. It costs your kids much more however since they are being taught to hate their own country.
Here is why every institution from Congress to the FBI to States and Local governments to your local schools can no longer be trusted:
District 87 isn’t run by moral and religious people. If you leave your kids in their indoctrination centers you will have indoctrinated kids.
Red states are banning the teaching of Critical Race Theory lies, if you can move to one. Illinois is chasing people from the state not only with high taxes but now because they care about their kids future. Indoctrinated kids don’t have a future.
