PWC School Board Issues “Equity Statement”

Parents raised concerns about what could be included in the policy changes resulting from the equity statement. They spoke out a recent Board meeting, at times disrupting the meeting and causing Board Chair Babur Leteef to threaten to remove people from the room. In public comment time, a series of parents questioned whether standards would be lowered, or whether less attention would be paid to their children. Some also questioned whether “critical race theory” would become a part of the division’s curriculum.
