A California school board member, during a recent meeting, compared reopening schools during the COVID pandemic to “white supremacist ideology” and “slavery.”
La Mesa-Spring Valley Schools Board Vice President Chardá Bell-Fontenot’s comments followed the district’s board voting Tuesday to bring students back to classrooms for hybrid learning beginning April 19.
In a video of the meeting, a person can be heard saying “I don’t think our plan should revolve around a vaccination, solely. I think there are a lot of other factors that are really important for children’s health and well-being that we need to take into account here and to only put all of our eggs in one basket is doing a great disservice to our children.”
La Mesa, CA trustee Bell-Fontenot goes off on fellow board members, one of which is Hispanic, saying returning to in-person learning is “a very white supremacist ideology,” telling them to “[check] their privilege,” and that mandating in-person instruction is “slavery.”

We can’t just say the kids can go back into the classrooms and there is no vaccinated teachers there willing to do that.
