School District In Texas Cracking Down on Displays of Racial Inclusivity and Pride

Trustees of Conroe ISD in Texas spent time discussing removal of displays featuring racial inclusivity and pride calling them “symbols of personal ideologies.”

One trustee, Melissa Dungan, said a child was traumatized by a poster showing children of different races holding hands and had to switch classrooms.

"A number of parents reaching out to her about supposed displays of personal ideologies in classrooms," said Dungan. “I wish I was shocked by each of the examples that were shared with me, however, I am aware these trends have been happening for many years."

One trustee even asked if the poster was illegal similar to the display of pride flags..

Critics say that a policy prohibiting political displays not related to curriculum already exists.

When asked by another trustee if Bible verses were in violation of existing policy and should be removed, Dugan responded with “I don’t know.”
