School district sued over 'anti-racism' teaching ban

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio school district's ban on "anti-racism" instruction is itself racist and an unconstitutional free speech prohibition, according to a federal lawsuit seeking to have the ban overturned.At issue is a resolution to create "a culture of kindness" narrowly approved last week by the Forest Hills school board in suburban Cincinnati. The resolution prohibits "anti-racism" curriculum, education and training and also bans the academic theory known as critical race theory.Students are banned from classes or assignments that require them to consider their race, socioeconomic class, gender identity or other characteristics as "a deficiency or a label" to stereotype students as having certain biases or prejudices, under the resolution.By prohibiting education, curriculum, and training regarding "anti-racism," the resolution "instead promotes racism by its very definition," according to the lawsuit filed Wednesday by parents and teachers against Forest Hill school board members and the district. A message was left with the district seeking comment.Legislation pending in the General Assembly would ban schools statewide from requiring or compelling Ohio teachers to affirm a belief in the systemic nature of racism or "the multiplicity or fluidity of gender identities."

Spend the Night at this Haunted Opera House in Kentucky

I am convinced that there are two types of people in this world. The first are the ones (like me) who cover their eyes during scary movies and still somehow mange to jump out of their seat (It's that music, I tell ya). The second are the ones who celebrate Halloween for months on end and are more interested in people's real encounters with ghosts than the special effects of Hollywood. My aunt and uncle fall into the latter as they use their PTO from work to schedule ghost hunts all over Indiana and Ohio.
