To the editor:
In 2021, Parents Defending Education—a shadow-funded organization whose stated purpose is to ‘fight indoctrination in the classroom’—represented five anonymous town residents in a lawsuit against the Wellesley Public Schools. This lawsuit attracted unflattering national attention, was costly to taxpayers, and resulted in a settlement agreement with the Wellesley Public Schools.
The Parents Defending Education website gives a clear view of the agenda the group is advancing.
Wellesley voters deserve to know if any of the current candidates for School Committee were among these anonymous litigants. I call on the candidates to make this information known.
