Teachers’ union sues Rhode Island mom over requests for CRT curriculum info


That led Solas to initially request a copy of the curriculum. She later broadened her requests to include emails involving the then-school superintendent, teachers and union officials. One of the requests included a question of “what qualifications” a music teacher had “to talk about race and equality with choir students”. The lawsuit filed Monday in Bristol County Superior Court requests that a judge block the release of “non-public records” and implement “a balancing test that properly assesses the public interest in the records at issue measured against the teacher’s individual privacy rights.” “Given the circumstances of the requests,” the lawsuit states, “it is likely that any teachers who are identifiable and have engaged in discussions about things like critical race theory will then be the subject of teacher harassment by national conservative groups opposed to critical race theory.” Solas fired back Thursday, telling Fox News: “You cannot be employed by the state and also demand immunity from public scrutiny. That’s not how open government works in America. Academic transparency is not a collective bargaining negotiation. It’s a parental right.”
