USPIE President Sheri Few fights for parent rights through local South Carolina lawsuit against Kershaw County School District
July 19, 2022
COLUMBIA, S. C. — As parents, teachers, and students start to prepare for the upcoming school year, scores of concerned Americans are demanding that all references to critical race theory (CRT) not only be identified in curriculum, but removed entirely. For Sheri Few, founder and president of United States Parents Involved in Education (USPIE), teaching parents and guardians how to identify and fight back against discordant pedagogies like CRT is her passion. USPIE’s latest feature film,Truth & Lies in American Education, reveals how CRT has infiltrated modern education, among the many other egregious teachings taking place today in schools across America.
Few is dedicated to uncovering the relentless CRT messaging (which is included in culturally responsive teaching) and propaganda in modern schools by speaking at school boards and school district meetings, as well as empowering parents and guardians to stand up for their children’s education.
“Critical race theory is everywhere in modern schools — they’ve just gotten better at hiding it,” stated Few. “Educators have rebranded critical race theory as ‘culturally relevant pedagogy’ and applied it in every academic discipline. These harmful ideologies are set on indoctrinating our children and making them believe they are victims in an all-encompassing culture war. They’re training our children to be activists rather than educating them.
“Parents and guardians need to know what is going on in their children’s schools and fight back! Parents don’t have to roll over and simply accept what school boards and educators say about teacher training and education materials. By demanding access to the teacher training materials, parents will have a clear understanding of what their children are learning in their classrooms.”
Few is currently embattled in a lawsuit with her own local school district over CRT in schools. Few asked Kershaw County School District for the teacher training materials to review herself. She was stonewalled but submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to obtain the teaching materials. The district then refused to comply and share the materials. Few filed a lawsuit and will pursue this concerning matter until the school district complies. The lawsuit is currently going forward.
Few commented, “School district officials work for us — the taxpayers. Why would they not want us to see the materials they are using to teach our children? The fact that the school district is refusing to show their teaching materials proves that they have something to hide. This kind of unlawful behavior exhibited by the Kershaw County School District explains USPIE’s motivation to produce our latest film, Truth & Lies in American Education. In the film, we dive into the heart of the American education system and uncover the tragic truth about what our children are being taught.”
USPIE’s latest project, a feature film titled “Truth & Lies in American Education,” is the true story of April Few, the young mother of two children, who takes the audience through her eye-opening experience of setting out to learn about government schools and her discovery of the alarming answers to questions such as:
Credentialed researchers, professors, authors and highly experienced individuals with first-hand knowledge — such as Karen England, Alex Newman, Dr. Duke Pesta, Dr. Carol Swain, Sam Sorbo, and more — are interviewed in the film to shed light on the facts. The powerful documentary is designed to not only bring awareness to this important issue, but to also spark a movement of dedicated parents and educators fighting for a change in the education system.
