As I said in a recent post, "You can't be a good person if you knowingly harm children for your own political benefit." These are not good people:
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is moving to eliminate all accelerated math options prior to 11th grade, effectively keeping higher-achieving students from advancing as they usually would in the school system...
A Loudoun parent who spoke on the condition of anonymity worried that the changes would "lower standards for all students in the name of equity"...
Ian Prior, a Loudoun parent and former Trump administration official, similarly panned the move as a way to "stifle advancement for gifted students and set them back as they prepare for advanced mathematics in college. This is critical race theory in action and parents should be outraged"...
The changes come as the state also considered eliminating advanced high school diplomas in an attempt to improve equity.
To paraphrase Golda Meir, critical race theory in schools will end when elected officials love children more than they hate conservatives.
Given that so many top awards in math and science have gone to students with Asian or Indian or Middle Eastern backgrounds, isn't it just a wee bit racist to hold those students behind b/c of a demographic group either unable or unwilling to compete? I don't know about you, but I don't want the person designing a bridge I use, performing surgery on me or patenting vaccines to be a person who was given a free pass based on what CRT beleives should happen academically over what actually occurs.
Once again, public education is proving to be the biggest example of systemic racism. Heaven forbid we allow school choice!
In response to that is this article, which is probably the best explanation of the Marxist roots of CRT and how it is being implemented in our society. I think you'll appreciate it.
An impressive article, thanks for sharing it.
