The proposed UCP K-6 curriculum is highly problematic. Decried by experts as developmentally inappropriate and patently racist, it is imperative that CCSD does not pilot this curriculum. Exposing children to a racist and Eurocentric curriculum that erases the Indigenous perspective and that does not address LGBTQ2S+ issues, as an example, is unconscionable. Our children deserve more from our board. We therefore request that CCSD rescind its decision to participate in this curriculum review process. CCSD has unfortunately found itself mired in issues relating to race over the past several years with students walking out of schools just last year over a failure to address racism. It is therefore necessary for CSSD to make a lasting gesture to its community that it will not stand for racism and intolerance. Opting out of the curriculum pilot is necssary for healing and is a positive step forward in positioning CCSD as a leader in diversity and inclusion.
