Hamilton County teachers from Opportunity Zone schools, sat through a presentation Friday that sparked controversy across the district. “It really hurts my heart that we have gone down this road,” District 1 school board member Rhonda Thurman told Channel 3.
Slides titled “White Privilege” and “Racism” were presented to teachers across the district by Robert Jackson – a former NFL player turned educator.
“We are graduating kids who can’t read in high school and this is what you waste the teacher’s time doing teaching them this nonsense? This is crazy,” Thurman told Channel 3.
