Fourth grade student says class was forced to take CRT survey and told to keep it from their parents

Late last week a fourth-grade girl stood before a school board in Minnesota telling them about a gender and race-based CRT survey they were forced to take and told to keep from their parents:

Here’s more from The Blaze:

A Minnesota fourth-grader and her mother are speaking out after a local school allegedly forced students to complete an “equity survey” and instructed them not to repeat the questions to their parents.

According to Alpha News Minnesota, fourth-grade student Haylee Yasgar said recently that she and fellow classmates were required by the Sartell-St. Stephen School District to complete the survey, which asked about students’ race and gender identity.

Even when she and other students encountered questions they could not understand, their teacher told them they had to answer without consulting with their parents, the student alleged.

During a school board meeting last week, Haylee informed the public that the process made her feel “very uncomfortable.”

“My teacher said that I could not skip any questions even when I didn’t understand them. One question asked us what gender we identify with. I was very confused along with a lot of other classmates,” Haylee said.

She added that students were told they were “not allowed” to ask their parents about questions and could not “repeat any of the questions to our parents.”

“Being asked to hide this from my mom made me very uncomfortable, like I was doing something wrong,” she said.

The survey was from a left-wing group the school district hired:

The survey was part of an initiative put on by the school district in partnership with Equity Alliance Minnesota, a left-wing group hired earlier this year for $80,000 to audit “racial inequities,” Alpha News reported.

The initiative has reportedly sparked significant backlash within the community as some parents argued the district is putting politics over educating children by bringing critical race theory and other leftist ideologies into classrooms.

God bless this young girl for speaking out against this. Mark Levin is right that we need cameras in the classroom. We were once able to trust our teachers, but not anymore, especially in left-wing cities and states.
