Kindergartner's mom files 200 records requests on CRT, gender curriculum to force school district to respond. Board claims she's using intimidation tactics.

 One Rhode Island mother is fighting back in her daughter's school district, demanding the school answer her public records request for information on its critical race theory curriculum.

According to reports, parent Nicole Solas filed more than 200 public records requests after the district reportedly refused to answer questions about how the topics of race and gender are approached in district classrooms.

School board committee members, however, said that Solas' continual flood of public records requests is an intimidation tactic to force gender-inclusive and anti-racism policies out of the district — and initially prompted the district to consider a lawsuit against Solas. Ultimately, the district determined that mediation was the best course of action.

What's the background here?

The woman, Nicole Solas, said that when she enrolled her daughter in kindergarten for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year at the South Kingstown School District, she asked the district if it is teaching the children any lessons on gender theory or CRT.

She said that her daughter's principal reportedly told her that they use gender-neutral pronouns and avoided referring to the children as "boys and girls."

"I was also told that they refrain from using gendered terminology in general terms of anti-racism," Solas said. "I was told that kids in kindergarten are asked what could have been done differently at Thanksgiving, and this struck me as a way to shame children for their American heritage."

Solas said that she couldn't get any straight answers about what the district is teaching its young minds, so she filed several public records requests to find out.

Several, Solas said, turned into 200 after the district refused to give her any straight answers on what it is teaching its children.

What are the details?

Nicole Solas told Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday that she will continue demanding her kindergartner's school district divulge information on its CRT program.

Earlier this year, Solas filed a variety of public records requests to find out more about the school's teaching curriculum on the race-based theory.

Following the request, a school board member during a public hearing accused Solas of being "racist" due to the onslaught of requests.

"That is a patently false, outrageous, defamatory statement that should be retracted, and the chair of the school committee should resign immediately," Solas thundered. "This is what they do. They smear people who ask them questions, who disagree with them, and it's just a false accusation of racism that they use to bully you into silence."

She added, "They reduce everyone down to the color of their skin and a human being's worth is more than that."

Solas said that she believes the district is stirring up "deep trouble" and said that parents should do their due diligence in finding out what their children are learning inside the classroom.

"I want parents to know that if they are going to get answers from their school district, they need to submit public records requests," she insisted. "This is a way that you can legally compel your school to answer questions so you can know what is being taught in your classrooms. Parents across the country have to start holding their school officials accountable. They are our civil servants. They work for us. They're not supposed to be these tyrants in the classroom. We need to stop being afraid of retaliation."
