School district DEI trainer argues American flag is turning into a symbol of hate, calls for firing employees. A diversity, equity, and inclusion trainer, Dr. Nancy Dome, has sparked controversy by suggesting that employees who resist critical race theory (CRT) should be fired. Dome, the CEO of Epoch Education, has written extensively on the topic and has provided training to thousands of teachers and administrators.

According to Dome, employees who do not accept notions like White privilege and inequity are a “poison to culture and climate.” She suggests that those who continue to resist after multiple attempts at “compassionate dialogue” should be removed from the team or organization.

Epoch Education has worked with several public school districts and the U.S. Department of Education, and has posted videos on YouTube explaining CRT and its relevance to diversity training. One exercise used in the training, called the “color line,” scores employees based on their race and privilege, with White men at the top and Black people at the bottom.

A California teacher who underwent the training found the messaging “insane” and refused to continue. Dome’s approach has been criticized for promoting division and mediocrity, and for rejecting equality in favor of equity.

Dome’s philosophy is based on the idea that everyone should get what they need, even if it’s different from what someone else gets. She believes that equity is necessary to give everyone what they need to thrive, and that an absence of equity will lead to theft.

“If someone continues to resist that culture or climate after multiple interruptions, then you know they do not belong,” Dome added.

The controversy highlights the ongoing debate over CRT and its role in diversity training. While some see it as necessary to address systemic racism, others view it as divisive and harmful.

Dome’s comments have sparked outrage among some who see her approach as draconian and oppressive. “This is insane,” said Isaac Newman, a California teacher who underwent the training. “I’m not taking any more of these trainings. I actually asked the district, ‘What happens if I don’t take the trainings?’ and they refused to tell me.”

The controversy has also raised questions about the influence of CRT in public education. Some critics argue that the theory is being used to indoctrinate students and teachers with a radical ideology that emphasizes racial division and victimhood.

Dome’s approach has also been criticized for its emphasis on equity over equality. “Equality is not enough,” she wrote in a LinkedIn article. “We need to give people what they need to thrive, even if that’s different from what someone else gets.”

The controversy highlights the ongoing debate over the role of CRT in diversity training and public education. While some see it as necessary to address systemic racism, others view it as divisive and harmful. As the debate continues, it remains to be seen how Dome’s approach will be received by educators and administrators across the country.
