The Chambersburg Area School District made sure to let News Talk 103.7FM know that Critical Race Theory is not being taught in the schools in Chambersburg. But the question still remains, if that’s the case, why is the school board considering diversity, equity and inclusion training for the teachers? Three concepts at the heart of Critical Race Theory.

Education & Grades are Secondary to Sports

Nearly 1 in 5 kids were failing at least one class (data from Q1 marking period per Superintendent) and is deemed “acceptable” to the TASD School Board & Administration. Sad that kids CAN now fail 2 subjects & yet still be eligible for sports. So much for Educating the next Generation.

BLM readings for elementary schoolers

The elementary school presented the book to the children titled "A Place Inside of me" which is stamped with the BLM logo all over the book. The story insinuates that police officers murdered a black child, and illustrations show police wearing black hoods and holding batons to harm citizens. The white characters illustrated in the book have "red" skin (not sure why), and the book mentions how their "people/ancestors" (the …

BrainPop's Black Lives Matter Protests Video

This was shown to 5th graders, like my child, during virtual Social Studies class back in September 2020.

You can file a "Right to Know" with the district yourself...to find out what the teachers AND …
