Dan & Amy were joined by Betsy Hart, the mother of two students at New Trier High School (NTHS). On February 28th, NTHS students are required to attend an all-day seminar on race relations in America featuring the #BlackLivesMatter perspective on the topic. When Betsy asked the school why parents weren’t involved in planning the day, she was told it wasn’t their place. Betsy, along with many NTHS parents believe the day lacks intellectual diversity and is disconnected from a robust discussion of what has hurt and what could help families struggling in urban centers like Chicago and elsewhere.
