Minnesota Public School Parents Sent Equity Survey From Anti-Israel Activists

From Deplorable Housewives:
Recently, parents in Minnesota’s Eastern Carver County school district received an “Equity Survey” via email from a company called the Culturally Responsive School Leadership Institute (CRSLI). The timing of the survey was interesting as the email landed in parents’ inboxes on May 30th, right before the close of the school year, when parents are busy with end-of-year school details.

The survey was sent in response to a petition that is circulating around the school district asking that more be done to combat racism in Eastern Carver County schools.

According to a report from KARE-TV, the school district has experienced several racist incidents including a middle-school student discovering the “N-word” scribbled on his shirt in December. In April, two white students were accused of placing faces of black students on a Google map and labeled the area on the map with the words “Negro Hill.” Other students were accused of wearing blackface at a football game, and another student wearing blackface was printed in the school’s yearbook.

The email along with the survey was sent out by Sherief Elabbady, who was listed on the CRSLI website as Chief Operating Officer, up until a few days ago. His photo and bio have since been removed from the website shortly after this article was published. The letter accompanying the email reads, “You have been invited to participate in a survey that will ultimately improve education in your district. The survey is titled: Eastern Carver County Public School Equity Audit. The survey should take approximately an hour of your time. To participate, please click on the button below.” It is signed by the “District Administrators and Research Team.”

Some parents who reached out to us questioned if the school district even had the authority to give their email addresses to a third party for school communications.

The survey contains 100 questions. Some of the questions contain grammatical errors and many of the questions appear to be based on feelings rather than facts and would be difficult for the average parent to answer. For example, one of the questions asks, “How many minority students, if any, do you think want to attend college?” Another question asks “Do you think teacher’s expectations for minority students [sic] higher or lower than their expectations for white students?” How can any parent answer these questions without knowing the individual situations, thoughts and intentions held by each teacher or minority student in the district? Here’s a sampling of some of other questions asked of parents on the survey [...]
