NO CRT AT LPHS SD108
If you are opposed to CRT at LPHS we urge you to take IMMEDIATE ACTION!!
At the LPHS Board of Ed meeting on 11/22/21, the assistant principal presented information to the board about a new platform called “Panorama”. This platform was presented as a remedy for students who were not thriving/succeeding in school. Panorama uses surveys to collect information/data from your child/student. Their website states this data is used to “provide a complete picture of every student’s academics, attendance, behavior, and social emotional learning (SEL) progress in school”. While the Panorama description of the student surveys might sound harmless, what is disconcerting are the roots it has in Critical Race Theory (CRT). The concept of SEL (Social Emotional Learning) is another ruse for implementing CRT through diversity, equity and inclusion. After the presentation, the board called a vote and approved this Panorama platform and will pay for a 3-year contract! It will be implemented at Lake Park within the next 2 weeks.
Nationally there has been much news coverage regarding CRT and many parents have rejected race-based CRT in their schools. The National School Board Association (NSBA) sent a letter to the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Attorney General Merrick Garland concerned that parents were interfering with their plans to implement CRT in schools. You may recall these same concerned parents were called “domestic terrorists” by the NSBA and encouraged AG Garland and the FBI to investigate them. It will interest you to know that the co-founder and president of the Panorama platform is AG Merrick Garland’s son-in-law!
The Panorama website openly says they are teaching SEL to students and teachers. https://www.panoramaed.com/
Here are some links that show you the SEL/CRT connection.
SIGN THIS PETITION AND EMAIL THE BOE, Superintendent, and Principal that you oppose the implementation of Panorama!
