Shorecrest High School celebrated MLK Day on Jan. 18 via a presentation by staff. A portion of the presentation focused on Castro. The mom, who requested anonymity for fear of retribution by the school, exclusively told The Jason Rantz Show on KTTH that her son texted her about the incident when it happened. She said her son told her he was “disturbed” when the school “celebrated Fidel Castro as a social rights hero of some sort.”

“Makes me angry and concerned that they are teaching our kids that a communist dictator is a hero. Right up there with MLK!” the mom exclusively explained to The Jason Rantz Show on KTTH. “They are whitewashing history, leaving out how horrible this man was to his people. If they are so blatant to do this at an assembly, what are they teaching in the classroom?”

Neither the school nor the district will publicly explain why Castro would be discussed during an MLK Day assembly. Shoreline School District spokesperson Rachel Belfield did not respond to multiple requests seeking comment from The Jason Rantz Show on KTTH and our sister station KIRO Newsradio. But an internal email forwarded to The Jason Rantz Show on KTTH showed a staff member explaining that student planners chose to feature Castro because he “worked for the decolonization of this country.” ...
