Illinois drama teacher Stacy Deemer sued the Evanston-Skokie School District (District 65) over its critical race theory training classes with ‘highly racial content that stereotypes White people.” The teacher claims the school is violating the Constitution.
The teacher brought the lawsuit under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
The lawsuit mentions how people confuse equity and equality:
5. Equity is very different than equality, although the two are sometimes confused. Equality is the principle proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence, defended in the Civil War, and codified into law through the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. As District 65 itself has recognized, equality is about sameness and treating everyone in an identical manner regardless of their race. Equity is about so-called justice and individuals getting what they “need and deserve.” Said another way, equality strives for equal opportunity while equity strives for equal outcomes.
Superintendent Devon Horton already told teachers, “If you’re not antiracist, we can’t have you in front of our students.”
