My child flourished at this school and has lasting friendships with his classmates who still attend this school but I removed him from this school because it teaches messages of racial inferiority without a second thought. When his second grade teachers showed video footage of dark skinned people being attacked by dogs guns bats and water hoses I knew it was time to remove him from this school. Because of this video and a video showing light skinned children stating "I hate black people" my child spent Martin Luther King weekend of 2012 crying and in fear that the things shown in those videos could happen to him. Then later in that calendar year my child learned in a lesson on the Olympics that "Marion Jones went to prison for putting drugs in her body" yet he couldn't tell us who Jesse Owens Flo Jo Michael Johnson Carl Lewis etc. are. Isn't it interesting that the one Olympic athlete of color about whom he learned is associated by this school with negativity? This is subtly teaching that dark skinned people are bad and inferior. Though we had a great first grade teacher here Rush Creek overall is a huge disappointment regardless of how high its test scores may be.
