OCR Complaints

On December 17, 2021, Parents Defending Education (PDE) filed a federal civil rights complaint with the U.S. Department of Education against Downers Grove South High School in Downers Grove, Illinois for discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin in programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance in violation of both Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VI), 42 U.S.C. § 2000d et seq. and the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

PDE makes this complaint as an interested third-party organization that opposes racial discrimination
and political indoctrination in America’s schools. Attached to this complaint is supporting evidence in
the form of a screen shot of a flyer displayed at the school.

On February 28, 2022 the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights dismissed this complaint. See the letter here.
