Rutland, Vt. — Vermonters for Vermont Initiative (V4V) announced today that they will host a public town hall Informational on public schools’ teaching of equity — better known as Critical Race Theory (CRT) — in the the classroom. V4V is a organization started in December 2018 to educate all Vermonters on the dangers of Progressive and Democratic public policy plans.
On Wednesday, June 16, 2021, at 6:30 p.m., six speakers will take to the stage in the Vermont Building at the Vermont State Fairgrounds in Rutland for two hours to discuss their experience and knowledge of Critical Race Theory. All of the speakers have direct experiences with the public school teachings and with the introduction of CRT with our children. CRT is also being introduced in many of our public institutions and some businesses. Proponents claim that it does not harm children, that CRT teaches equity to one another. Opponents argue that CRT is destroying our children and making them think as racist, and pitting race and ethnic groups against each other.
It’s been around since the 1970s, being taught in many colleges across the nation, and it comes from the writings of the communist manifesto works of Karl Marx.
Our speakers for the evening are:
Elizabeth Cady; Essex-Westford Schoolboard Member.
Todd Filmore; MRUHS Parent Group Member.
John Klar; VT Liberty Network.
Michael Lannon; Public School Teacher.
Tricia O’Connor; Rutland City Schoolboard Member.
Rep. Arthur Peterson; R-Rutland 5-2
The event will be facilitated by Gregory Thayer, of the “Vermonters for Vermont” Initiative.
