@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."

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...…
3/ Here is a letter from the Rhode Island Superintendents Association supporting #CRT in #RhodeIsland schools. Guess which Superintendent sat on the LEAP Task force?

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...."…
3/EXCEPT: We DO have a CRT policy here in RI, and not only that, it's being supported by @GovDanMcKee, by RIDE, and also by @SANDRISCANO (Chair - Senate Education Committee) and Joseph McNamara @RIDemChair - (Chair -- House of Rep Education Committee.) SITTING LEGISLATORS.
