CRT: Critical Race Theory or Crazy Radical Tantrums?
Do We Fund Schools or Indoctrination Camps?
There’s a culture war afoot, and the citizenry is fighting back. First, we have the woke craze and Critical Race Theory that dominates the news these days. Fortunately, there’s a rising resistance among parents and concerned citizens on that front.
And then there is the math craziness. 2+2=4. Period. But now that the crazies are in charge, if you insist on right and wrong answers, you are racist. Really. But until recently, the proposed California math framework recommended dropping high school calculus and other challenging classes to further “equity”. Fortunately, with enough citizen outrage, the state walked back some of its new math mandates, notably dropping the over-the-top “equitable” math mandates. But the war is not over. The framework has not been finalized, and the California Dept. of Education will hold a second public review in June and July.
Also, in May California decided to eliminate the SAT and ACT, traditional tests used as an admission requirement for students to gain entry into the University of California. The ban, through at least 2025, was clearly instituted because Blacks and Hispanics did not benefit from these objective tests. But some maintain the change clearly discriminates against Whites and Asians (including low-income ones) who have or will score well on the test. This is obvious grounds for a lawsuit, though none has been filed to date.
We can’t sit idly by and watch the future of our students be destroyed this way. A recent poll reveals that 94 percent of respondents aren’t in favor of white privilege training. To combat this woke onslaught, the citizenry cannot stand idly by. Action is necessary – write letters, talk to your neighbors, join a group, institute a lawsuit – whatever it takes to derail the woke train. But we need information and guidance first. Join us to hear what resources are available to us to push back on this woke onslaught!
