Is Equity better at Unit 5 schools since Dr. Shelvin was hired for the 2021-2022 School year?
Question: What happened to the kids who participated in the restroom destruction challenge they saw on TikTok? Did they get Equity? Did the taxpayers get Equity? Did the kids that didn’t participate see Equity and Justice or pats on the head to the offenders?
Dr. Shelvin was supposedly a school psychologist in Livingston County who has a kid in Unit 5. She starts complaining about discrimination against black student in the district and then magically lands a job as Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for $98,000 a year!

Doc then produces training videos for the 47 district new hires to fan out to all the schools to indoctrinate their staff. Again magically, those zoom training sessions weren’t recorded. See this story: https://blnnews.com/2022/03/02/unit-5-and-equity/
Let me guess what they said: Be less white.
Prove me wrong Unit 5, you can’t without the video you told me in a previous FOIA you don’t have.
Dr. Shelvin is not a contract employee, she’s a full time burden to taxpayers. She comes complete with benefits and a pension that add roughly 50% more to the cost.
Has Unit 5 proven she has done anything to help race relations? Achieve Equity (whatever that means)?
This comment was made to a story linked above. Kids are incredible good at see bull, this proves it:
I talked to a neighbor’s high school son the other day. A sophomore at Normal West. The good news is that the kids all know this is utter BS, according to him, and they scam it for all it’s worth and play along for the grades. They also believe any adult interested in their “authentic self” (i.e., their sexuality) is weird and perverted. As it should be.
Unit 5 can save money by not giving Dr. Shelvin a new contract next year. Growing up is really hard, students need to know the basics not a bunch of garbled thoughts only in schools because of Marxist ideology needing division to succeed.
Prove me wrong Unit 5. Find the training videos.
