About this episode:
It’s election day in Southlake, Texas – it’s time to see if all the battles around the school district’s cultural skills action plan translate into votes.

After the votes are counted, Southlake becomes a national star in the movement to redefine and eradicate critical race theory. Stuck in the middle is Lane Ledbetter, Carroll’s new school principal, who is tasked with bringing the community together – but in a rare interview he struggles to answer questions about racism in Southlake. On graduation day, Nikki Olaleye says she hopes Southlake’s future doesn’t reflect her past.
