The campaign manager for the town’s Republican slate of Board of Education candidates says comments she made about how “helping kids of color” has a negative impact on white children were taken out of context during a University of Connecticut education forum

Mary Beeman, the campaign manager for the group Parents for Guilford Students, made the comments last week during the UConn virtual forum on race in education

In the forum’s chat, Beeman commented, “helping kids of color to feel they belong has a negative effect on white, Christian, or conservative kids”
Beeman could not be reached for comment Thursday, but in a statement posted on Facebook, she said her remarks during the forum were “poorly worded and shown out of context”

In her statement posted on the Facebook group, Not So Simply Guilford, Beeman said her comment was in response to a statement Freeman made during the webinar about the importance of children of color fitting in

“Guilford students who may have staunch Judeo-Christian values — or simply are conservative thinkers — have been bullied into submission by their teachers and fellow students with left-leaning ideologies,” Beeman, a former Guilford Board of Education member, wrote in her statement. “Not only is diversity of thought being stifled, students are being victimized socially and emotionally because they have a different perspective”
