Four months ago, Rhode Island mom Nicole Solas, 38, asked the principal of her child’s kindergarten whether the kids would be learning about critical race theory (CRT). Not all parents in the US are happy about its being taught, with some being concerned it focuses on skin colour rather than individual merit, and thereby creates the very institutional racism its teaching is supposed to eradicate.

Solas’ concerns, however, went deeper. She also asked the principal whether the children were going to learn about gender theory. 

And it turns out they would be,” she told RT. “They said they don’t call kids ‘boys’ and ‘girls’, and they don’t use gendered terminology. [As for] the First Thanksgiving, they ask kids what could have been done differently.” 

When Solas pressed for more detail, she was told to submit public records requests. She believed it was all just part of the bureaucratic process, but things changed when she filed her paperwork.

My school then threatened to sue me, as they thought I’d submitted too many requests. They bullied and harassed me in a public meeting. They treated me like I was having a show trial and ultimately decided not to sue me,” she explained. “But then a month or so later, the National Education Association, which is the largest teachers’ union in America, did sue me. They’re suing me to prevent the disclosure of public information that would come out of my public records requests, as they’re claiming teachers are going to be harassed if we know they are teaching CRT.

A court hearing has been scheduled for December. However, for Solas, that was only the start, as she felt allegations had been made about her character on American TV. As a result, she moved her daughter to a private Catholic school. She said, “I made a decision to remove her from public school the moment my school hired a PR firm to defame me in the national media and imply that I’m racist on Fox News.
