Parents of middle school students in Rockingham County, North Carolina brought a school board meeting to its feet when they showed up to expose something the far Left has developed called “equity training” for public school teachers.

The two outraged parents revealed that an African-American teacher had forced white, Christian students to stand up in class and apologize to non-white classmates for their “white privilege.”

A concerned mother, Farren Wilkinson, asked, “I would like to know how our schools can allow an educator to humiliate, bully, and degrade children. This is not a matter of race but a matter of a teacher using fear and the embarrassment of children to satisfy her own personal anger or beliefs.”

Wilkinson concluded her remarks by asking, “Why are parents looking for private schools and charter schools? It’s because they have lost faith in the public schools.”

Next up, Robert Jeremy, the father of a 9-year-old boy, said he was so upset, as a parent and as a citizen that he couldn’t “even describe it without using language that is inappropriate.”

“When did it become a good idea to attack a child at a school because they were white, or they were black, or they were straight, or they were Christian? My child will not be insulted, reprimanded, corrected because he has a good moral fiber.”

Mr. Jeremy said he represented, “at least 50 other parents” who felt the same way, warning the school board, “You’re fixing to lose a lot more students.”

Parents in the room erupted into applause, with several voicing a strong, “Amen!” to his message.

After the parents spoke, the school board president made a perfunctory statement of appreciation for their comments and then immediately moved forward with the preset agenda as most of the assembled parents left the room.

The classroom incident took place last May and the teacher, Ms. Clarke, lost her job because of it, but other teachers are being required to participate in the same so-called “equity training,” on controversial subjects such as white privilege and transgender issues.

Some teachers have reached out to the Rockingham County Republican Committee according to Chair Diane Parnell, who said the educators, “felt like they needed help… because it was something against their Christian principles.”

The school district paid $45,000 with reimbursement of up to an additional $1,500 for travel expenses for the training even as it faces a shortfall of nearly $6 million with the county commissioners trimming the education allotment by $269,000.
