School Counselor ‘Anti-Racism’ Committee Hosts Racially Segregated Event

Reagan Reese, Daily Caller, March 21, 2023

A school counselor association is hosting a weekly race-based group for members to learn about anti-racism practices, according to the organization.

The California Association for School Counselors’ (CASC) Social Justice, Equity and Anti-Racism Committee is putting on an 8-week affinity group explicitly offered for “white school counselors” to “explore their privilege,” according to a CASC tweet. The weekly group will serve as a facilitated group for the counselors to examine their racial identity and increase their “anti-racist work” at school.

“This school counselors organization should be focusing on getting kids back on track emotionally and academically—not teaching their counselors divisive race ideology,” Alex Nester, investigative research fellow for Parents Defending Education (PDE), a parental rights organization, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. {snip}

White school counselors within the state of California are encouraged to attend an online information session on March 30 to discuss the overview of the affinity group and the curriculum, according to a registration form for the event. {snip}
