“School should prepare students for citizenship in our constitutional republic and colorblind society, not turn impressionable children into social justice warriors who view all that is good and just through the distorted lens of race, sex, gender, power, and politics.”
This is a screen shot of what my browser shows for Unit 5:
Unit 5 is hiding what they are doing because they know parents would not approve of the indoctrination Kristen Weikle is leading at Unit 5 schools. Oh yes, I can prove it beyond their hiding “Training”. Remember when they conveniently didn’t keep the “training” video? https://blnnews.com/2022/03/11/unit-5-dr-shelvin-and-the-cost-of-equity/
The school board not only moved toward raising your property taxes, they heard a presentation from numerous people who are indoctrinating your kids with Equity speech, Diversity Equity and Inclusion. See 54:15 to hear all of the speakers – it’s gibberish.
The definitive proof Unit 5 has gone WOKE is in a comment made by Dr. Krystal Shilven, Unit 5’s Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. This 36 seconds tells you all you need to know about Unit 5. Sorry about the quality, I had to tape this since the traditional ways I use to clip videos didn’t work. You can see her comments on the Unit 5 video at 1:16:15
Shelvin confirms Unit 5 is doing what other school districts around Illinois aren’t. Since they are HIDING what they are doing PARENTS need to find out. You don’t HIDE what you are proud of. Don’t forget they want MORE of your money! It is also illegal to hide what taxpayers are paying for.
1:23:30 Board member Alan Kalitzky asked how they quantify success with Shelvin’s program. Next year! Shelvin claims it will take time to see changes. This first year was setting up the program. Meanwhile, the district wants more of your money.
Two other clips to see. The first one is Mary Carlisle, the only Public Comment. The second one of Kristen Weikle proves Mary is 100% right. Why was Mary the only person to speak? Why weren’t 100’s of parents present to protest what is happening to their kids? Kids only get one chance at an education, your kids will never recover from attending Unit 5 schools. Next year they take DEI to the Elementary schools.
School Board elections are early next year. 320 districts have opted out of Comprehensive Sexuality Education because it is vile. Unit 5 is all in for grades 8 and 9. Weikle and every school board member up for election needs replaced. Parents, where are you?
