The site itself announces: ‘SOCA is open to all students in grades JK–5th Grade who self-identify as a student of color and who are interested in participating.’

White students, or, as the site says, “students who identify themselves as white”, are excluded from SOCA groups. Students of color can only participate in SOCA groups. Through direct, intentional programming within the curriculum of the Lower and Intermediate Schools, all students have an opportunity to reflect on their racial identity and how it relates to their greater self-understanding.

They add: ‘While white identity development is absolutely important to a child’s development, we know there are a number of factors in the racial identity development process of young children of color that can benefit from direct programming in a way that differs from that of white students.’

She He said, “Rather than teaching innocent, small-minded children to be kind to everyone, authority figures, such as their parents, are teaching students to see all human interaction through a lens of skin color.” Francis Parker administrators need to be ashamed of themselves. Families should express their disapproval so that this programming can end.

It’s after Bruno was caught by Project Veritas on camera describing the school’s sex education curriculum.

He It was also revealed that a drag queen was invited to the classroom and took photos with the children. She also handed out cookies. 

The video was shared on Project Veritas Twitter account which has 1 million followers. It has been viewed over 3.5 million times.

Bruno, who is the dean of students since 2004, describes how close students are to the objects during the conversation.

‘The kids are just playing with ’em, looking at ’em… They’re like, ‘How does this butt-plug work? How do we do – like, how does this work?’ He said that it was a great part of his job. 

Bruno simply replies no to the man filming when he asks if everyone is cool with that and if they have received any complaints. 

The Project Veritas reporter then asks if parents who pay $40,000 for their children to attend the school might be concerned. He replies, “No, it’s just queer sex.”

The man also mentioned that Pride Week saw the school invite guests, including Alexis Bevins (drag queen), to ‘hangout’ with the students.
