Evanston Township High School will permanently continue a program that designates an “LGBTQIA+ lunch space” for students, according to the minutes of a recent school board meeting highlighting the district’s “social consciousness” agenda.
The segregated lunch space for “queer” students, coined “Qrunch,” was held each Tuesday and Thursday during a trial period last semester, a memorandum on the district’s website notes.
On Mondays, a segregated lunch session for “Black and Brown students in the LGBTQIA+ community” was held.
Quinton Clemons, who describes himself as a “proud queer educator,” supervised the segregated spaces.
In addition to segregated lunch programs, the memorandum boasted about more than a dozen additional programs designed to indoctrinate impressionable high school students into the Left’s ideology, including a “radical reading team,” an “antiracist working group,” and a leftist speaker series.
“We are encouraged by this year’s successes and are eager to continue this vital work next school year,” the district’s equity analyst wrote.
Unfortunately, segregated spaces and programming in academia are a growing trend – Young America’s Foundation’s Commencement Ceremony Segregation Report found that 86 of the top 100 colleges and universities in the United States held segregated graduation ceremonies for the class of 2023.
It’s disappointing that Evanston Township High School feels that it’s appropriate to create divisions among its student body based on woke categorizations.
The New Guard attempted to reach Clemons for comment but has yet to hear back. This story will be updated accordingly.
