School District in California Lies About Teaching Critical Race Theory

School District in California Lies About Teaching Critical Race Theory

“multiple public employees at Riverside Unified School District claimed that critical race theory was not taught in the school district”

Schools are ignoring the concerns and demands of parents. They’re just doing what they want to do.

The Federalist reports:

California’s Riverside School District Lies About Teaching Critical Race Theory

Despite officials at Riverside Unified School District claiming critical race theory is not taught in the California district, public records, as well as a cursory glance at the district’s website, proves such claims are blatant lies.

According to records of the minutes taken at two local school board meetings, one of which was held on July 15, 2021 and another on August 5, 2021, multiple public employees at Riverside Unified School District claimed that critical race theory was not taught in the school district. Superintendent Renee Hill is one such public employee.

The records note that during the meeting on July 15, Hill addressed various topics “that seemed to be on the minds of some RUSD stakeholders. First, she said, RUSD does not teach Critical Race Theory.” The divisive theory was discussed again during the August 5 meeting, when community members spoke on CRT during the public comments section of the meeting. It was directly after these public comments that Board of Education member Tom Hunt also lied about the presence of CRT in the district.

The minutes records noted that Hunt “addressed the fact that there are rurmors floating around that RUSD is teaching critical race theory, but they are not. A company was hired to work with RUSD staff in order to enhance ethnic relations, and this has created a misconception, because the design for Ethnic Studies is not critical race theory. Hunt said there is fake news happening across the nation, including Riverside.”

The Local Control and Accountability Plan revealed the district spent a whopping $942,103 on programs for cultural proficiency training, culturally responsive teaching, and other programs that frequently feature the themes of CRT.

Comments

Sorry, but this seems to me to be a weak article.

It contains documented statements from school officials that they don’t teach CRT; check.

What it does not contain is a smoking gun showing they are lying. “Infer it from a glance at their website” and “programs that frequently feature the themes of CRT” are an extremely weak-sauce counterclaim.

    I think that if you are paying out nearly $1 million to implement/train cultural proficiency training, and culturally responsive teaching, you are following in the backwards leap of CRT.

    Assuming that teachers just need programs of diversity training is as bad as assuming minorities are unable to meet academic standards… oh, wait!
