  1. “These parents seem to think that exposure to the diversity of the human experience is going to make their children brainwashed automatons ”

    No. Exposure to diversity done in some ways is beneficial. Exposure to leftist ideology masquerading as diversity is harmful. That’s the brand of “diversity” pushed by Kendi, Bell and other authors that the district has given places to take root and it’s the brand of “diversity” commonly pushed in colleges of education.

Maybe the GA legislature will hurry that process along.
