(Dailycaller.com, May 11th, 2022) Fairfax high school in Virginia requested programing run by the Justice Department’s Community Relations Service (CRS), called the School-Student Problem Identification and Resolution of Issues Together (SPIRIT). One day they separate students into “homogenous” groups to “identify the school’s strengths and areas on concerns, including the alleged “widespread use” of racial and ethnic slurs.” On the second day, they meet in heterogenous groups. There is also a “SPIRIT Student Advisory Team” that meets with the school principal. Parents were not notified in written form about this programming and not open to the parents.
“When school-sponsored programs like this separate students on the basis of immutable characteristics, it gives students the misimpression that doing so is acceptable — and it is not,” Neily continued. “Parents do not want the seeds of racial division planted in their children’s heads by anyone — much less from a taxpayer-funded institution.”
