Sex ed teacher, candidate for District 211 school board shares 'incredible' report on segregation in Illinois schools
Outspoken sex education teacher Kim Cavill, 37, is running for the Palatine-Schaumburg District 211 school board, and calls a recent investigative series by the magazine Governing on segregation in Illinois “incredible.”
One article in Governing’s “Segregated In The Heartland” series, published Jan. 23, discusses how “predominantly white schools [in Illinois] are driving the racial divide.”
On Jan. 24, Cavill, who lives in Palatine, posted a link to the series on her campaign Facebook page, with this note:
“Check out this incredible investigative series about segregation in Illinois, including how we create and maintain it for the explicit benefit of white people communities at the expense of minority communities, especially black communities.”
She did not return a call to North Cook News for comment on whether she believes D211, not mentioned in the article, encourages segregation.
Two D211 school board members reached by North Cook News insist the district does not.
Board member Bob LeFevre said that he has never heard anyone suggest that the district was any way segregated.
“The only time we might move a student to another school is when a special needs student might be better served there,” LeFevre said.
Board member Pete Dombrowski wrote in an email reply that “some schools have a greater ethnic community involvement (identity) that is not discouraged. These identities are not by design of the school district.
"As the communities have changed, the boundaries have not changed,” he added. “The BOE [Board of Education] could review the current boundaries if needed, but currently there is capacity at each of the schools for more students and there has been no call from the community to make adjustments.”
On her campaign Facebook page, Cavill lists her religion as “Unitarian Universalist” and her political views as “Other.”
She is “an experienced Sex Education Teacher and Teen Pregnancy Prevention Specialist,” according to her business website, teaandintimacy.com.
“I talk about anal sex in my classes,” she wrote in a November 2018 tweet from her Twitter account, @sexposparenting, “because: 1. It’s sex. 2. People have it. 3. It can transmit STIs. If you teach sex ed and don’t talk about anal sex, you don’t teach sex ed, you teach bullshit.”
And in a July 2018 tweet she cited several questions she has received from students: “If I am having a threesome and one person has HIV, are we all affected? Can a baby get HIV when a woman is pregnant with HIV? How do women poop? (I only know women have the urine hole and the clitoris, but do they poop through the clitoris, or do they have a normal butthole?)”
She discovered she was out of a job after reading of a funding cut by the Trump Administration on Twitter, according to podbay.fm. a podcast website.
She accused the president of being a white nationalist.
“Trump campaigned on white nationalist policies,” she wrote in a July 2018 letter to the Daily Herald. “Supporters cloak this in economic anxiety, but it is just a politically-correct disguise for white fear.”
