World news – Disturbing recordings of incidents at the Kids ‘R’ kids preschool in Georgia result in the franchisee’s contract being terminated


A parent shared footage on social media that resulted in a preschool losing a franchisee contract. Revolt reported that a man named Marquis shared a disturbing picture of his son’s classroom on Instagram. Both black and white children were visible. The white children were sitting with plates of food in front of them, but the black children who could be seen in the screenshot still seemed to be waiting for something – even if some of them were sitting at the same table with white children.

 » It’s really unbelievable, « commented Instagram user A-MAC. « You better know this is not the last time you will hear about it from me. Why does every white child have their food? Not a single black child has food in front of them! Thank goodness for cameras in classrooms because there is no way. » To hide this racism! In 2021 this is really unbelievable. As blacks, we always try to send our children to suburban schools, but I tell you firsthand that this is not always the best. This is not black -White problem, this is just wrong! @Kidsrkidscorporate I’m waiting for your cooperation office’s feedback on this, ”he wrote on Instagram.

A response came from David Vinson, President and CEO of Kids ‘R’ Kids International , Inc., apologized on Kids’ R ‘Kids’ Instagram account, adding that Kids’ R’ Kids would end their contract with the offending preschool.

« The interactions videotaped by one of our families yesterday are disturbing and inconsistent with the inclusive culture that we at Kids ‘R’ Kids encourage among our families, their children or our employees, » Vinson said in a separate post Statement. « We apologize to the family, community and everyone affected by the situation and will use this as a learning tool to remind our Kids ‘R’ Kids staff of the importance of diversity and inclusivity. »
