Everyone is talking about critical race theory these days. The local school committee meetings are filled to standing capacity and logged into via Zoom with angry parents and citizens. I’d like to try to explain what CRT is so we know how to fight it.

I took Superintendent Linda Savastano’s recent statement as a slap in the face. The way the wording is, it’s more about protecting herself than being honest and sincere with what she did. Her statement has done nothing to help residents to put this fiasco behind us. If anything, it has put more doubt in our minds that there are more people involved and we don’t know to what extent.

Only a few months ago, an in person graduation seemed improbable for many, with expectations of another virtual graduation ceremony or one with very limited people.

Luckily for the North Kingstown High School Class of 2021, that was not the case, as 324 seniors gathered on the football field to join the ranks of Skippers alumni. The ceremony was held on campus in the stadium rather than at the Ryan Center for the first time in over 15 years in order to comply with COVID restrictions at the time of planning.
