Biden Admin Signals Intent to Push Critical Race Theory Under Guise of History and Civics
“It is critical that the teaching of American history and civics creates learning experiences that validate and reflect the diversity, identities, histories, contributions, and experiences of all students.”
This is not happening spontaneously, the left has been planning this for a long time. They think their moment is here.

Biden administration signals intent to push critical race theory as American history and civics education
The U.S. Department of Education has proposed prioritizing grant projects that use Critical Race Theory in a competition for federal funding that is supposed to center on American history and civics.
The Department issued a Notice of Proposed Priority Monday that would create a new allowable use for grant funding in the American History and Civics Education programs that exist to teach high school students and educators about the United States.
Both programs within the American History and Civics Education grant are funded with taxpayer dollars through the the National Endowment for the Humanities. The initiative funds centers, typically created in partnership with colleges and universities, that provide professional development for teachers and educational enrichment for high schoolers.
Should the priority move forward, applicants would be required to explain how they would “take into account systemic marginalization, biases, inequities, and discriminatory policy and practice in American history.” Other stipulations would require applicants to “incorporate racially, ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse perspectives” and to “support the creation of learning environments that validate and reflect the diversity, identities, and experiences of all students,” among others.
The notice published by the Department quotes professor and “antiracist” activist Ibram X. Kendi, who said, “Antiracist ideas argue that racist policies are the cause of racial inequities.”
The Department continues, “It is critical that the teaching of American history and civics creates learning experiences that validate and reflect the diversity, identities, histories, contributions, and experiences of all students.”

Leave the public schools. Now.
Better yet, disband them. Use ballot measures, or petitions, or what have you. Just close down public schools altogether. Choose private schools, or, form cooperatives of parents to teach bunches of kids. Mrs. Jones teaches arithmetic / math. Mr. Smith is a retired aerospace engineer; he could teach science. Old Miss Johnson is a history buff, so could teach history and civics (not “social studies”). Mr. Grizzly in the house down the way is a music nut; he could teach art and music appreciation.
Just think: no indoctrination. No sex ed. No social justice. No “Mary is reading FAR beyond her grade level. Did you teacher her at home? That’s OUR job!”
I wasn’t aware that the purpose of instruction was to validate the student.
