FAST FIVE: "This Must Stop!" One Father's Fight Against Pervasive Entrenchment Of Critical Race Theory In America's Schools
“This Must Stop!” One Father's Fight Against Pervasive Entrenchment Of Critical Race Theory In America's Schools Authored by Andrea Widburg via AmericanThinker.com, Even as the Biden administration doubles down on Critical Race Theory, a dishonest, divisive, toxic idea holding that Whites are racist, inferior creatures who have used their unfairly obtained privilege to oppress Blacks and other races, parents are beginning to fight back. It turns out that, once you ignore cancel culture make a statement, there are a lot of people who want to follow your lead. One of those parents, to his surprise, found himself at the head of a brewing revolution.
Countless parents expressed to me their appreciation for stating clearly and forcibly what so many Americans have been thinking but have been too afraid to state out loud.
Many also conveyed that they felt newly emboldened to speak up for their children.
Even Brearley, after initially dismissing the contents of my letter and indicating a desire to double down on antiracism initiatives has, for the very first time, offered parents an opportunity to ask questions about the school's diversity, equity, inclusion, and antiracist initiatives. That's the good news. The bad news is that Gutmann learned from the outpouring of messages that, in a single year, Critical Race Theory has become deeply embedded in American education from kindergarten through to graduate work: Prior to sending the letter, I had no idea how pervasive and entrenched critical race theory had become in our schools, including public and religious schools.
Too many parents are too afraid to speak up in support of their children's education for fear of losing their jobs.
