A woke charter school in Nevada demands its students profess their identity transgressions or face the consequences, according to court records.
As The College Fix reports, Gabrielle Clark has followed through on her threat to file a civil rights lawsuit against Democracy Prep at the Agassi Campus, which refused to let her son opt out of a mandatory class promoting hostility toward whites.
The school demanded William Clark “make professions about his racial, sexual, gender and religious identities in verbal class exercises and in graded, written homework assignments,” creating a hostile environment, the biracial high school student and his mother allege in the federal litigation.
The senior’s statements were “subject to the scrutiny, interrogation and derogatory labeling of students, teachers and school administrators,” who “still are coercing him to accept and affirm politicized and discriminatory principles and statements that he cannot in conscience affirm.”
Nearly 150 pages of exhibits document the curriculum in the graduation requirement “Sociology of Change,” which allegedly promotes intersectionality and critical race theory.
The lawsuit also names Democracy Prep Public Schools, the New York-based charter network, and several officials in the local school and network as defendants.
According to the suit, the curriculum was imposed by a new crop of officials who joined DPAC three years ago – halfway through William’s schooling at DPAC. (The charter network acquired the school in 2016 with help from a federal grant.)
Taxpayers, once again, are funding Woke bullies pushing their far left identity agenda.
