Maryland School District Announces Policy to Push ‘Anti-Racist Thinking’ In Preschool, Redefine ‘Discrimination’ and ‘Racism’
The Montgomery County Public School district in Maryland spent more than $450,000 on an “anti-racist audit” for the 2020-21 school year, which resulted in the district tentatively adopting policies that push “anti-racist thinking” in preschool.
According to a copy of the school district’s “tentative action policy” obtained by The Daily Wire, the district will now provide a “culturally responsive Prekindergarten to Grade 12 curriculum that promotes equity, respect, anti-racist thinking, and civility.” The curriculum will also teach students that “the impact of racism on mental health has been deemed a public health crisis.”
The school district, which is one of the largest in the nation, announced in November that it would partner with the Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium for $454,680 to conduct an “anti-racist audit.” The audit was designed to “examine [the district’s] systems, practices, and policies that do not create access, opportunities, and equitable outcomes for every student’s academic and social emotional well-being.” According to Bethesda Magazine, the contract was awarded despite anticipated budget cuts of up to $155 million.
In a review of the Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium’s financial filings, the Washington Free Beacon discovered that the group had raked in $17 million in taxpayer dollars between mid-2018 to mid-2019. The group has not reported a private donation in four years and has received its government financial backing through a partnership with the Department of Education.
The audit is ongoing, but its reach is already being seen in curriculum changes, policy changes, school board meetings, and parent-teacher association (PTA) meetings. In a powerpoint presentation delivered by the district in a PTA meeting, the district stated its newfound goal “is to be an anti-racist school system.”
