CRITICAL RACE THEORY IS BOTH RACIST AND A LIE: New Poll Reveals What Americans Think About Critical Race Theory In Schools

 

Approximately 62% of American voters believe that schools should focus on math and science rather than teaching Critical Race Theory (CRT), according to a poll obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

 

More than three-fifths of Americans think K-12 schools need to invest more time on “standard curriculum” such as math, science and grammar, with less time spent on CRT and transgenderism, according to a poll by Summit.org and McLaughlin and Associates. Approximately 57% of voters believe teaching CRT is further dividing ethnic and racial groups amongst American youth.

GOOD TO SEE COLLEGE STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE THAT COULD ACTUALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE RATHER THAN THE ALL-TOO-OFTEN JUVENILE EVENTS THAT THEY HOST ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES: EXCLUSIVE: Conservative Student Group Mobilizes Thousands Of Activists To Push For School Choice

YALE LAW STUDENTS ACTING LIKE CIVILIZED HUMAN BEINGS FOR ONCE. Hope springs eternal: Top conservative attorney returns to Yale Law School. This time, students didn’t shriek like banshees.

THIS IS WHY I KEEP TELLING PEOPLE THAT THE EDUCATION DEEP STATE CAN’T BE REFORMED. If you control who can and can’t become a teacher based on their beliefs, then you control what is put into the minds of children. On the sunny side of things, this will cause more families to #JustWalkAway:  Today’s blacklisted American: Minnesota to blacklist all Christians, Jews, or Muslims from teaching.

 

They’re coming for you next: Minnesota’s unelected education bureaucracy is about to impose new licensing requirements for teachers that will essentially blacklist all Christians, Jews, or Muslims by requiring teachers to teach the queer agenda as well as the critical race theory to young children.

 

Minnesota’s Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB), a division of the state Department of Education, has been working to change teacher certification requirements since 2019. Its latest public draft, which is finalized save for a few tweaks that don’t affect the content, includes multiple requirements that licensure candidates publicly support critical race theory and transgender ideology and include both in their teaching. Teachers must receive state licensure to be employed in Minnesota public and many private schools.

EDUCATION FREEDOM IS ON THE MOVE In Oklahoma, Duncan school superintendent Tom Deighan said supporters of taxpayer-funded school choice aim to “dismantle all public schools.”

School choice is picking up steam nationwide – and 2023 promises to be a great year.

Somewhere, the late Milton Friedman is beaming. The godfather of school choice and all-around genius had a vision in 1955 to extricate the government from administering education by giving parents vouchers that they could use for specified educational services.

It took a while to get off the ground, but today Friedman’s plan is flying high. According to EdChoice (formerly the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice), 32 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico have some form of private school choice law in place.

STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES: College math a ‘white, cisheteropatriarchal space,’ Vanderbilt professor says at major conference.

 

“Undergraduate Mathematics Education as a White, Cisheteropatriarchal Space and Opportunities for Structural Disruption to Advance Queer of Color Justice” was the full title of the lecture given by Luis Leyva, associate professor of mathematics education at the Peabody College of Education and Human Development at Vanderbilt University.

 

Leyva delivered the lecture Jan. 4 in Boston at the Joint Mathematics Meetings 2023. The summit is the “largest mathematics gathering in the world,” according to its website.

 

“Cisheteropatriarchal” is a term in ethnic studies referring to “a system of male, straight, conforming-to-assigned sex system power,” teacher and curriculum designer R. Tolteka Cuauhtin told the Los Angeles Times in a 2019 article.

 

Leyva’s “findings depict[ed] how Black, Latin*, and Asian QT [queer and transgender] students’ narratives of experience reflect forms of intersectionality, or instances of oppression and resistance,” according to his
