A Connecticut teacher is suing Hartford Public Schools for violating his First Amendment rights after disagreeing with an “Identity and Privilege” training.

The teacher, John Grande, claims the training was part of an effort to push critical race theory and that school officials fabricated evidence against him.

He alleges a “witch hunt” and a “kangaroo court” to silence his free speech rights. (Trending: Pro Sport Announces Shock Decision On Transgender Athletes)

“I was targeted for punishment by school district administrators because I refused to endorse their agenda to push critical race theory on teachers,” Grande said.

“They launched a witch hunt against me and ran a kangaroo court to convict me for exercising my free speech rights.”

“They threatened my career to silence me, but with this lawsuit, I’m leveling the playing field and forcing school officials to answer for trampling my rights.”

Grande seeks to rescind a disciplinary letter, obtain damages, and challenge the unconstitutional conduct of school officials.

“Based on those prompts, Mr. Grande believed that the Privilege Presentation targeted a certain class of people, including him, and was an exercise in critical race theory, rather than one aimed at improving the education of students,” the lawsuit reads.

In a related issue, the Connecticut State Board of Labor Relations ruled in Grande’s favor, stating that the Hartford Federation of Teachers discriminated against him based on his membership status.
