North Carolina Spending Millions on CRT Program That Teaches Disabled Preschoolers How Whiteness Affects Everything

North Carolina Spending Millions on CRT Program That Teaches Disabled Preschoolers How Whiteness Affects Everything

“understanding that ‘control’ is based in white norms and is associated with white supremacist thought; it is appropriate to focus on social emotional teaching and learning”

North Carolina is spending millions of dollars on a Critical Race Theory program developed at the University of North Carolina that teaches disabled preschoolers about the problems of whiteness.

It’s stunning that someone looked at this and thought it was a good idea.

Kendall Tietz reports at the Daily Caller:

CRT Program Teaches Disabled Preschoolers That ‘Whiteness Affects Everything’

A program designed by the University of North Carolina (UNC) teaches 3 and 4-year-old disabled preschoolers to “deconstruct whiteness,” according to a report from Education First Alliance (EFA).

Education groups called on the North Carolina General Assembly to stop funding a statewide program that teaches Critical Race Theory (CRT) aligned ideas to special education students, according to an EFA press release.

The North Carolina State Board approved the extension of a contract with UNC Chapel Hill’s Frank Porter Graham (FPG) Child Development Center, which has worked with the Office of Early Learning (OEL) of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (DPI) since 2013.

The “Equity and Cultural Responsiveness” program defines whiteness as how “customs, culture, and beliefs operate as the standard by which all other groups are compared,” and it encourages “deconstructing whiteness” by “challenging it” and “developing a personal vision for racial justice, and building skills to be accountable allies to people of color.”

Some parents are not happy, and who can blame them?

Luke Rosiak reports at the Daily Wire:

A Red State Just Spent Money For Handicapped Pre-Schoolers On CRT Training

North Carolina is on blast from parents’ groups after the state school board approved a $7 million federal grant called the Preschool Handicapped Grant to be used for “Equity and Cultural Responsiveness in the Early Childhood Classroom.”

“Preying on disabled 3 year old children – getting them to participate in a political movement, and to hate themselves based on skin color in the process, shows our public schools to be more morally corrupt than all others,” Sloan Rachmuth, president of the group Education First Alliance, said in a press release. “With this vote, North Carolina’s schools became the most radically divisive system in America.”…

A slide says teachers should help preschoolers with “building racial identity” and “Encourage the children to question social, scientific, and historical facts. We want children to question whether information is true.”

In a section titled “General Supervision of Children,” which governs “children’s health and safety,” a page with the same watermark says controlling a preschool class requires “understanding that ‘control’ is based in white norms and is associated with white supremacist thought; it is appropriate to focus on social emotional teaching and learning.”

Rosiak goes on to point out that North Carolina is controlled by Republicans and that Lt. Governor Mark Robinson is a vocal critic of Critical Race Theory.

Republican leaders should use any powers they have to shut down this lunacy.

UPDATE: It looks like this has been shut down. Good.

Jesus, we are screwed

They think that they can abort the baby, cannibalize her profitable parts, sequester her carbon pollutants, and have her, too.

Whitewashing is a clear and progressive risk of the Pro-Choice religion including diversity [dogma] (i.e. color judgment, class-based bigotry), and Critical Racists’ Theory which derives from its teachings. #HateLovesAbortion

These poor kids won’t know how to read, write, or add, but they can spot a microaggression from a mile away.

A slide says teachers should help preschoolers with “building racial identity” and “Encourage the children to question social, scientific, and historical facts. We want children to question whether information is true.”

Well, maybe they’re on to something after all. If they want children to learn critical thinking, what better method than by telling them obvious lies and testing whether they saw through them. “Now, children, think about what I just told you; does it sound true to you? Do you think it was true? If so, why? If not, why not? What clues did you pick up that what I told you was a load of garbage?”

    3 year olds don’t do that. They believe the teacher.

      artichoke in reply to kyrrat. | January 12, 2022 at 7:14 pm

      Yes, it requires an exceptional 3 year old to overcome that, with a lot of parental support. Easier just not to put them at risk in such a classroom.

        kyrrat in reply to artichoke. | January 12, 2022 at 8:02 pm

        (This was years ago, so just think about it now.) My cousin has a french last name. It is not pronounced as it is in france. His PreK teacher pronounced it properly (for france). You could ask him his father and mother’s last name and he would pronounce it correctly (for our family). You could ask him his last name. He pronounced it as the teacher did.

        It took multiple visits with the pre-k teacher and parents to re-train him to saying his OWN last name correctly.

        Apply that to ‘THIS’ training. You see my point I am sure.

          kyrrat in reply to kyrrat. | January 12, 2022 at 8:14 pm

          Side note. Think about how often you ask your child their full name at that age, once they have learned it prior to prek.

        Milhouse in reply to artichoke. | January 13, 2022 at 1:00 am

        Teaching almost anything to 3-year-olds is a stupid idea. 3-year-olds aren’t in school to learn things, they’re there to learn how to color inside the lines, how to play nicely with each other, how to be quiet at nap time. Skills, not information, and not even complicated skills like shoe-tying, which their brains are just not ready for.

        So the idea of such a curriculum for 3-year-olds, let alone disabled ones, is so obviously stupid that I didn’t think it needed comment. I just seized on the claim that their aim is to teach critical thinking, and noted that if that is so then telling a bunch of lies might be a good way to do it.

        I mean, you can’t even begin to teach critical thinking to someone who hasn’t yet figured out that rabbits don’t belong in hats,

          artichoke in reply to Milhouse. | January 13, 2022 at 4:03 pm

          Yeah you probably remember school as I do, sort of evaluating what the teachers were saying in real time, esp. in classes like “social studies”. Some made sense, some didn’t. They were like hypotheses or proposals, not facts.

          I’ve been amazed how few people experienced school that way. They think they’re supposed to believe everything that person in front of the room says!

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | January 13, 2022 at 11:07 pm

          Actually my memory of school as a small child was a deep conviction that teachers ought to always be right, and therefore being extremely upset and actually crying whenever a teacher said something that I knew to be wrong. It seemed to me to be something that just should not be possible, and yet it clearly was, and the only way I could deal with it was to argue with the teacher and try to convince her of the truth, while crying because the world was not behaving the way it should. Needless to say this did not have the intended effect, which only made it worse.

      artichoke in reply to kyrrat. | January 13, 2022 at 4:08 pm

      The teachers want to be believed. One of the upsides of early childhood ed. is that the pupils really are under your control. That, and inability to complete a harder major, is a reason some of those people are in the job.

      I was lucky. I had good teachers for the earliest grades, esp. first grade. By the time I got to the control freaks in 5th and 6th, I was essentially uncontrollable.

When elementary students start committing suicide, School Administrators will have no clue that piling white guilt on 5 year olds did it.

    And they will have no liability

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to Milhouse. | January 13, 2022 at 3:23 am

      There are truancy laws. Kids MUST be in school. No one was forced to watch a television show.

      JohnSmith100 in reply to Milhouse. | January 13, 2022 at 1:07 pm

      I can see a parent putting them down when a child kills themselves, and a jury understanding that that was when they had coming.

    They’ll just blame the parents anyway.

      JohnSmith100 in reply to irv. | January 13, 2022 at 1:11 pm

      Not if it is someone black. Poor parenting terrible culture, and low IQ, all play a role in poor outcomes for black children. There needs to be some accountability.

        artichoke in reply to JohnSmith100. | January 13, 2022 at 4:13 pm

        We’re spending a ton of money on schools, so I’d say that base is covered as well as it can be. Parents will raise their own kids, and maybe they are accountable to God, but they are not accountable to me, nor do I want them to be. Some bad things are just nobody’s fault.

        We’ve tried everything. Unless we go back to a more conservative society overall, there won’t be improvement.

    artichoke in reply to MattMusson. | January 13, 2022 at 4:10 pm

    Or, they may not mind if those who were untrainable to their standards left the system permanently. The woke can be inhuman monsters.

The Gentle Grizzly | January 12, 2022 at 4:23 pm

Will they teach white children their racial identity? Or is that racist?

Pasadena Peabody | January 12, 2022 at 4:24 pm

Teaches them about “deconstructing whiteness”

With all the problems in the black community you would think they would consider teaching a course on deconstrucing blackness. Or the advantages of thinking like a white person. Or how to throw away the race card and live according the content of your character.

Imus used to say that he was 66 years old but read at a 68 year old level.

Why would I be an “accountable” ally? I can be a friend if I like them, but “accountable”?? I don’t owe them anything!

Other than the age brackets, this sounds a lot like the abuse LI documented back in October.

North Carolina, my heavens… To paraphrase a Terry Pratchett quote about royalty of which I am particularly fond:
“It was as if even the most intelligent person had this little blank spot in their heads where someone had written, ‘Racial preferences. What a good idea!'”

Is the board elected or appointed? Most Southern States have elected State school boards.

Another example of voters not paying attention to the election. These sorts of ideologues are not blank slates as candidates. They provide plenty of warning signals if we pay attention. It’s a down ballot election and may even be held off cycle so it takes commitment to perform due diligence on the candidate and to vote. It’s up to us as voters to become knowledgeable on every candidate in every race from President to dog catcher. If we don’t know who we voted for and why in a race that’s on us.

    artichoke in reply to CommoChief. | January 13, 2022 at 3:59 pm

    True. I regard the school board election (which probably also includes the school budget) as more important than the regular November election. My vote makes more difference, it’s easier to predict how the candidates will act in office, and the policies affect me more.

MisterSadFaceMcGee | January 13, 2022 at 11:38 am

This can’t possibly be true. The Democrats keep saying CRT isn’t being taught in schools!

ZoidbergOwnedMedia | January 13, 2022 at 12:44 pm

It’s always White disabled kids who get the worst from everyone. I should know; I’ve been physically disabled for decades. Nobody cares about a bunch of people who are too pale to score woke points off of and who aren’t able to do the same pointless activities most people consider “fun”.

It’s a clever idea, for them. Parents of non-disabled kids can probably avoid a woke preschool by just keeping kids home. But disabled kids exhaust the parents and require more help, so they have to be at the preschool. Thus they are trapped and will receive their racial grooming.

Awful, but that’s what these people are.

This infuriates me!!! It is child abuse and a waste of time and $; it is robbing these precious innocents of the help they truly need.
NC even has a Republican ed superintendent who appears to be either inept or corrupt.
There are groups in NC fighting this including Education First Alliance.
