[Ed. – How dare her for wanting to know what her child will be taught.]
The Rhode Island branch of a major teachers union is suing to block a school district from fulfilling a mother’s public records requests, citing the sheer volume of requests and concerns about teacher privacy.
The case revolves around a mom, Nicole Solas, who caught national attention for her quest to address critical race theory (CRT) in her child’s district. School board members previously considered suing Solas over her copious records requests – at least 200 – but declined prior to the recent lawsuit.
“We are asking the Court to conduct a balancing test to determine whether our members’ privacy rights outweigh the public interest,” said Jennifer Azevedo, who serves as deputy director of the National Education Association Rhode Island (NEARI). “We believe they do, and those records should either not be disclosed or should be redacted accordingly.”
