Here are our concerns:
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in our Essex Westford School District (EWSD) teaches students and staff that white persons are supremacists because of their skin color. Those who do not conform to this belief, are scared and can experience repercussions.
The focus from DEI is black and white thinking, oppressor versus oppressed. It is up to one person, the DEI Director, who determines who is oppressed and who is not.
Students, with EWSD's encouragement, keep secrets from parents. Schools keep separate records of children who want different names and pronouns without parents' knowledge. Parents are being excluded, devalued and undermined by EWSD.
Professional Development is presented with a faulty premise and bias. For example, teachers are being segrated during professional development and ideas that are considered "white supremist thinking" include individualism, progress is bigger and fear of open conflict.
