Per a stakeholder, also re:the hate crime incident at Pope and others: 'Cobb’s ban on talking about bias, hate and race make it impossible for school counselors to guide students through difficult and complex conversations in developmentally appropriate ways as we are trained'
'In absence of being allowed to support students (the ones harmed AND the ones inflicting the harm) through this so they all end up doing better and being healthy emotionally, harsh punishments will be the go to'
This stakeholder has spoken to @ADL/ @ADLSoutheast and fears that the ban on CRT is an effective gag order on Cobb employees from discussing these issues with students, even when needed. Stakeholder fears the situation will get worse due to lack of addressing appropriately.
