The Center of the American Experiment is hosting events across the state to make people aware of the spreading insertion of Critical Race Theory and woke curriculum into the teaching at local Minnesota schools. Parents need to be aware of how it is appearing and what they can do about it.
The Center has recently highlighted a few of the examples:
Burnsville: 4th graders read a book that warns students that police are "mean" to black people, but "nice" to white people. "Cops stick up for each other," it says. "And they don’t like black men."
Eagan: 9th graders began the school year by watching a YouTube video entitled "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man."
Hopkins: The district Superintendent told returning faculty and staff that to "eradicate" a "pandemic of racial injustice," "we need to examine the role that whiteness plays in our macrosystem of white supremacy."
Minnetonka: Students and alumni issued 11 "Anti-Racism Imperatives," demanding-among other things-that the district adopt an "anti-oppressive curriculum."
The thrust of the Center of the American Experiment events is that children deserve education, not indoctrination. If this is happening in your local district, or if you are concerned that it might be introduced this summer or fall, one of these events might offer ways to get engaged in the fight against the woke revolution.
