North Carolina School District Urges Teachers to Ignore Parents’ Concerns and Teach Critical Race Theory
“told teachers to “disrupt” whiteness by not letting parents stand in the way of social justice instruction in the classroom”
This is becoming more common as some educators are absolutely determined to implement this agenda, despite the wishes of parents. The parents are the taxpayers who keep the lights on and the bills paid. They need to start reminding schools of that.

REPORT: Largest School District In North Carolina Urges Teachers To Ignore Parents’ Pushback And Teach ‘Antiracism’
North Carolina’s largest school district held a conference where administrators told teachers to “disrupt” whiteness by not letting parents stand in the way of social justice instruction in the classroom, Discovery Institute scholar Christopher Rufo reported Thursday.
In February 2020, the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) reportedly held a conference called “#EdCampEquity,” which include lessons on “whiteness in ed spaces,” “microaggressions at work,” and “trauma-informed yoga,” Rufo reported. More than 200 public school teachers in North Carolina attended the conference, which was reportedly introduced by WCPSS superintendent Cathy Moore.
Freelance reporter A.P. Dillon provided the documents, which were obtained through a public records request, to City Journal.
One document from the conference shows a chart describing a “critical race theory model,” which claims teachers hold hidden stereotypes and biases that compel them to “have different expectations and hold Black students to a different standard.” A key tenant of critical race theory (CRT) also challenges the claim that public education is colorblind and provides equal opportunity, the chart says.
