South Bend Schools are woke crapfests, everything from the CRT laden curriculum to the elimination of straight white male staff to the overt racism of “diversity” requirements in teachers. The goal of the SBCSC is not to educate children, but to become a leftist utopia and indoctrinate the students into that mindset.

Maybe if the focus was actually on education, parents would not be pulling their children out in record numbers…

Needless to say this will NOT come up at their little meeting.

I would consider student safety and fear as the largest factor on kids not wanting to be in the South bend Schools . President Obama stressed the perceived racism against black male students in the school system The school to prison pipe line was the tag line. No student should miss school because of alleged discipline or violence problems became federal policy ( Did not the department of Education come down on the South Bend Schools for too many black males being suspended or expelled?) This policy demanded all students, no matter how violent, remain in school. In context in the 1950’s I was the 3rd smallest and youngest kid in school I was really bullied and picked on Many days i did not want to go to school as someone had swore they would beat me up that day. If kids are threatened with violence in school – they will try and go where they are safe. Christian, religious, charter schools with high expectations , values, and safety
