In 2019, the Rhode Island General Assembly passed enabling legislation that empowered the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) to develop curricula for various subjects that would be pushed down to every school district in the state … in essence, removing authority from local school districts and, instead, granting near-absolute power to RIDE to mandate what is taught to our children. RIDE Commissioner, Angelica Infante Green, and her staff have usurped this unchecked authority to advance a radical-left (woke) agenda through various “centrally-planned” curricula standards.
In the 2- minute video clip below, David Randall, who authored the report “Taken for a RIDE, How Rhode Island’s Social Studies Standards Shortchange Students“, explains why RIDE has over-stepped its authority in producing such politically-divisive, historically incorrect, and academically unacceptable standards.
