MO school official told teachers to post redacted course info so parents wouldn’t complain

[Ed. – The official said this not not “being deceitful” because it mirrors what they do when classes are meeting at school — i.e., teaching kids things the teachers don’t let parents know about.  Apparently the official needs remedial training in what “deceitful” means.  She told teachers to post instruction block info without details where parent were going to see it, and include the detailed info (e.g., talking points, illustrations, examples) only in what kids could see.]

Natalie Fallert, EdD, 6-12 Literacy Speech Coordinator, wrote to all middle and high school principals that parents had repeatedly complained that “we are pushing an agenda,” “we are pushing Critical Race Theory (I had to look this one up!)” …

The problem was that, for the first time, parents could see what teachers were telling their children thanks to virtual learning, where assignments were visible for at-home learners in a tool called Canvas.

Fallert’s solution:

This doesn’t mean throw out the lesson and find a new one. Just pull the resource off Canvas so parents cannot see it …

Keep teaching! Just don’t make everything visible on Canvas. This is not being deceitful. This is just doing what you have done for years. Prior to the pandemic you didn’t send everything home or have it available. You taught in your classroom and things were peachy keen. We are going old-school. …
