“The Abolitionist Teaching Network”
Democrats and the media have assured me that critical race theory is not being taught in schools.
The New York Post reports:
Biden admin’s school reopening guidelines included link to group promoting critical race theory
A handbook with guidance for reopening schools prepared by the Biden administration included a hyperlink to a radical group called the Abolitionist Teaching Network that advocates for teachers to “disrupt Whiteness and other forms of oppression.”
A report from Fox News outlines the controversial positions of the group promoted by the Department of Education, including doing away with “all punitive or disciplinary practices that spirit murder Black, Brown, and Indigenous children” in classrooms.
The Abolitionist Teaching Network has a list of “demands” on its website including “[f]ree, antiracist therapy for White educators and support staff,” and its co-founder Bettina Love has said, “If you don’t recognize that White supremacy is in everything we do, then we got a problem,” adding, “I want us to be feared.”
Love also said her network would “create a national database of antiracist school counselors, therapists and lawyers,” and would make available “activists in residence” for school districts deemed to be in need of them.
The activist in residence position is advertised on the website as a $30,000-a-year job with 20 hours of work a week that includes canvassing as well as “creating media and propaganda.”
The controversial group was linked to by the DOE in its reopening handbook in a section related to students’ academic, social and emotional needs. President Biden’s American Rescue Plan provided $122 billion of aid to schools, 20% of which must go to programs such as those offered by the Abolitionist Teaching Network.
