Public-school districts across the country are prioritizing teaching applicants who are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion and other left-wing ideologies in a way that may run afoul of federal law, according to a new report from a nonprofit government watchdog.

The National Opportunity Project recently published a report which identified nearly two dozen school districts that use biased job postings, slanted application and/or interview questions, and diversity-hiring guidance to perpetuate left-wing bias among their faculties.

The report, the first to examine politically biased K–12 hiring practices, also detailed how hiring committees and interview panels use identity quotas to select for certain races, genders, and/or sexual orientations.
