Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
In the last few months and more recently, this blog continues to receive a number of questions and commentary regarding transgender school sports issues, Critical Race Theory, certain reading requirements in the local school districts, and related topics.
Once again, these questions and comments are best referred to the school districts in question. That may be difficult but it is really the only way to get accurate up to date information.
Local parents---and interested readers---should know, however, that they are not alone in their concerns. As such, the blog will provide links to the latest news, videos, etc. on these issues.
Out of necessity, these posts will be closed to all comments. Questions and comments must be referred to the media source(s) and/or school districts cited. Good luck.
