Desiree Tucker came to Frederick County for the opportunity to send her children to a better public school system.
She and her husband moved from Prince George’s County. He worried about their children attending school in a largely white county, but Tucker said it was similar to how she grew up.
Her child went through kindergarten, and Tucker told producer Heather Mongilio there were some eye-opening moments when it came to the lack of diversity in the school’s curriculum.
Then education reporter Katryna Perera spoke with Board of Education member Michael Bunitsky about the Racial Equity Committee and ways that FCPS does and does not include diversity in the curriculum.
Perera joins Mongilio to talk about reporting the story after speaking with Bunitsky.
A new episode of Frederick Uncut comes out every Tuesday.
