A Utah school made black history month optional, then reversed decision

By: | February 9, 2021

A school in Utah is continuing its Black History Month curriculum after parents asked the school to allow their children opt out of the program.

Maria Montessori Academy in North Ogden, Utah, after receiving requests from parents, sent out an opt-out form for those unwilling to participate in the school’s planned Black History Month curriculum. The school would not reveal how many parents filled the form out.
