Remember that #RhodeIsland BOE meeting where the Council on Elem & Sec Ed directed @AInfanteGreen and @RIDeptEd to reject any school reopening plan that did not include a mask mandate? Here is the infamous letter generating the OMA violating letter. A 🧵. 2/ Notice this letter is to the GOV, and lists not one, but TWO teacher unions as signatories. Guess what else? Two of the signatories are actually on the the BOE: Colleen Callahan (RITFHP) and Larry Purtill (NEARI). That's not all...

@AInfanteGreen I found your written position on @repmorgan bill H6070, which would have prevented you from bringing #CriticalRaceTheory to all #RhodeIsland schools. Nice try attempting to bury it, though.

Tell us again how RIDE "doesn't have a #CRT policy."

@LGillheeney 2/ Here is a link to @RIDeptEd official position on #CriticalRaceTheory in #RhodeIsland - straight from the RI Legislature website. Hint: They sure were against banning #CRT, but that's not all the gems I found...…

Remember this task force appears devoted to bringing #CriticalRaceTheory to all RI schools, by hook or by crook. Guess what Generation Citizen... Image 2/ stands for? Culture change and System Change, to the tune of educating our students about their oppression and privilege. As @repmorgan can attest, this is how we wind up with students being bribed with test credit to become social justice warriors. But wait! There's more! Image

Exposing #CriticalRaceTheory (CRT) in #RhodeIsland, and @RIDeptEd Commissioner @AInfanteGreen's role in forcing it on school districts everywhere. A 🧵
@NoLeftTurnElana @esanzi @LegInsurrection @sistertoldjah @repmorgan @Elaine4Senator @GovDanMcKee @JessicaforRI @RIRepublicans 2/First up: Listen to @AInfanteGreen's interview with @IanDon -- Fast forward in the link to about 11:40 and you will hear her LIE on 7/9/2021:
"...I know that here in RI we do not have a CRT policy, that's not what is being taught in the schools...."…
