Wadsworth, OH – In the last few days, State Board of Education president Laura Kohler and board member Eric Poklar resigned in the wake of their opposition to a resolution that would have protected children from being indoctrinated with divisive and racist teachings in the classroom. Both of them supported Resolution 20, which would have taught our children they are inherently racist and made to feel guilty simply by existing.
“Mike DeWine is responsible for stacking the school board with people who are trying to tear down our students by indoctrinating them with Critical Race Theory,” Jim Renacci said. “Whether it is forcing our children to wear masks, implementing the Vax-2-School scam, or brainwashing students with CRT, DeWine has hurt children more than he has helped. We need new leadership that will protect our children instead of throwing them to the wolves.”
The Columbus Dispatch writes:
“…a lot of Republicans saw the resolution as problematic. They said it opened the door to a controversial kind of teaching about history, racism and slavery that was anti-American.”
