(FROM THE ARTICLE: A group in Illinois is looking for chapters across the state to help keep tabs on teaching plans they say are dividing children. A parent in Naperville, Shannon Adcock, said she became aware of “culturally responsive teaching” when she was unsuccessful in running for the school board. She said the more she learned about it, the more she felt it was regressive and divisive by teaching children race or gender directly impacts outcomes. “You are having students segregated by their color, by their sexuality, by their any number of filters that an activist teacher can choose and say ‘so because of your skin color you are a problem, because of your skin color you will never make it in life, because of this intangible systemic problem in one of the greatest countries in the world,’ and to me, it’s to me extremely anti-Americanism, it’s anti-child and I believe it to be child abuse,” Adcock told WMAY. “Teach history, there’s no question about that, but when you begin filtering students, this becomes a problem and it’s a violation, a constitutional violation.” She said the curriculum can take many different names and forms, so she and others seeing similar trends in other parts of the state started the website AwakeIL.com as a way to share information with taxpayers, parents and educators about trends around the state. “We are going to preserve the integrity of our constitution, state and federal, and we’re going to take that divisive curricula and segregationist approach to education out of our classrooms,” she said.)
