From Campus Reform:

Parents of students attending New Trier High School in Illinois are dismayed by the school’s insistence on hosting a civil rights “Seminar Day” that discusses white privilege, microaggressions, and implicit bias.

On February 28, New Trier will host an All School Seminar Day titled Understanding Today’s Struggle for Racial Civil Rights. Students are required to attend a keynote speech as well as one homeroom workshop, but many parents are asking the school to cancel or postpone the seminar over perceived liberal bias, The Chicago Tribune reports.
