    RALEIGH, N.C. - Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing a professor fired by the North Carolina Governor's School after he spoke out about the harms of the racially divisive ideology the school is embracing will be available for media interviews Tuesday following oral arguments at the Wake Superior Courthouse.

    Dr. David Phillips was a well-respected English professor who spent eight summers teaching at the Governor's School, a residential summer program for the state's most talented high-school seniors. For years, Phillips spoke out against the school's increasing adoption of critical theory, an ideology that views everyone and everything through the lens of characteristics like race, sex, and religion, labeling people as perpetual oppressors or victims based on group membership alone. After Phillips delivered three optional seminars in June 2021 critiquing critical theory and the increasing bias and lack of viewpoint diversity in higher education, North Carolina public school officials fired him mid-session without any explanation.
