Legal Scholars Detail the Fight Against Critical Race Theory in Public Schools
“The most important battleground in the fight to save our American republic is the public schools.”
The battle against CRT in schools is not only being fought at school board meetings. It is being fought in the courts, too.
Kimberly Hermann and Braden Boucek of the Southeastern Legal Foundation write at The American Mind:
Winning the CRT Wars in the Courtroom
The American culture war is real. This is not news, as battles rage in nearly every corner of our nation. But how do we engage the enemy in a non-fruitless manner and win?
The most important battleground in the fight to save our American republic is the public schools. K-12 schools across our nation have replaced color-blind education with race-based programming in the name of “equity.” What seems like a relatively benign cause is actually code for a much bigger and more dangerous agenda: to condition children to see each other’s skin color first and foremost, categorize everyone according to a hierarchy of racial privilege, then pit different racial groups against each other.
That is the bad news. The good news is that parents have had enough. They recognize that administrators and teachers putting this divisive and hateful ideology into practice are using our public schools to create a generation of “social justice warriors.” They are correct to recoil from “equity” and “anti-racism” when they see how fast it has taken hold in their children’s school. These are deeply destructive and controversial ideas, the very opposite of equality.
In their outrage over what their children are being taught, many are considering lawsuits. The law can be a powerful weapon, offering hope for a lasting victory. But as with any fight, you must first lay out a strategy. Poorly thought-out legal challenges make things worse by setting bad precedent.

Now all the little bullies have run whining to the big bully for protection:
School Officials Beg Biden and FBI for Protection Against Threats From ‘Angry Mobs’
“As these acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials have increased, the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.”
And lots of other vague and novel Communist catch-all “crimes” that are loosely defined as “any stuff we don’t like.”
Is the second half of the article missing? It seems to end in the middle. The final statement that a plan needs to be set before lawsuits are persued leads me to believe that the next portion of the article would then detail prospective plans but there is simply a sudden stop as in the middle of a thought.
Sorry, but this is folly. The only ethical response to America’s best example of totalitarian socialism is to disestablish it. It is fundamentally corrupt and un-American. It cannot be fixed or reformed.
Prove me wrong if you can.
