CV NEWS FEED // Even as it has become clear that teaching Critical Race Theory to American children in public schools is a mainstream priority of the political Left, many leading promoters of the controversial teaching method continued to deny their own advocacy this week. “Critical Race Theory is not taught in elementary schools or middle schools or high schools,” claimed American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten. “It’s a method of examination taught in law school and in college that helps analyze whether systemic racism exists and in particular whether it has an effect on law and public policy,” she said. Weingarten’s own teachers union recently tweeted about its secretary-treasurer’s appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America, where Evelyn DeJesus argued that “teaching critical race theory allows educators to ‘give our students the opportunity to understand the full breadth and depth of the American society.’” The rise of CRT in public schools has caused thousands of parents to speak out and testify against it at public school board hearings across the nation.  White parents have expressed concern that their children are being taught to feel ashamed of their skin because of the notion of collective racial guilt for evils like early American slavery. Non-white parents have also complained against CRT, arguing that their children are being damaged by the message that their country is systemically working against them, and that they are widely hated by whites due to their race. Weingarten seems to reject these criticisms, characterizing the concerns of parents as dishonest attacks against teachers who merely want to teach their children the truth.  “…[C]ulture warriors are labeling any discussion of race, racism, or discrimination as CRT to try to make it toxic,” said the teachers union head. “They are bullying teachers and trying to stop us from teaching students accurate history.”
