Murray Schools promotes Political Division

The picture of the Black Lives Matter and Pride Flag comes from 9th Grade Biology Class at Riverview Junior High in Murray School District. Picture taken Aug 20, 2021. Last year when a parent complained about a BLM sign on a classroom door, the principal replied: “The sign you referred to is allowed by the Murray City School District. I asked for direction to respond to your email and received the following: ‘The Murray City School District does not endorse or support any political statements in schools. The statement that black lives matter is permitted in the school setting not as an endorsement of a political viewpoint, but as a statement of support for anti-racism and human rights.'” This poster is not just a statement, but appears to be one of the Black Lives Matter organization’s logos.

It is unclear how either of these pieces of propaganda relates to the teaching of biology.
