From a Friend of McHenry County Blog:
I want to give you a heads up that Crystal Lake School District 47 has commissioned Corwin Deep Equity to provide equity training for the Board and district/school leadership teams. This may be of interest to you for your McHenry County Blog.
I send you this because when “Corwin Deep Equity” is searched on any search engine, every single link not from their own website is extremely critical with mentions of CRT and the program itself promoting racism.
There are no positive mentions of the program. As a parent of children in the district this raises great concerns for their wellbeing and education.
I hope you may spread awareness to our community before this gets too far off the ground.
More information can be found in the District 47 fall newsletter towards the bottom of section “COVID ESSER (Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief) FUNDING”.
Equity training: At the September 21, 2021 Board of Education meeting, the Board approved a two-year professional development leadership series for the Board and district/school leadership teams.
The program, set to begin during the 2022-23 school year, will be provided by Corwin Deep Equity.
