What K-12 work has Cultures Connecting done?

WASHINGTON

Bainbridge Island School District #303

In documents received from the school district in response to a public records request, the school district paid $159.24 (p. 235) for a ticket to an event, “Equity Leaders Unite,” by Cultures Connecting on June 26, 2017. While it’s a small dollar amount, the expenditure reveals how school districts pay for this indoctrination of staff to the controversial ideas of outside consultants, using taxpayer money.

Furthermore, the school district had a contract (pages 249-250) with Cultures Connecting LLC/Ilsa Marie Govan on Oct. 31, 2016, for $7,500 to do “cultural competency training sessions for BISD administrators.”
