Private School in Chicago Injected Critical Race Theory Into Physics Starting in 2016 and Tracked Student Reactions

“address power dynamics, systematic racism, white privilege and the shortage of people of color and women in the field of science, especially physics”

Remember though, according to Democrats and the media, no one is teaching Critical Race Theory.

The Daily Mail reports:

$40,000-a-year Chicago private school boasted of injecting critical race theory into PHYSICS classes as far back as 2016 – and revealed that students’ reactions would be ‘tracked’

A $40,000-a-year- private school in Chicago had allegedly injected critical race theory into its physics classes as far back as 2016 and tracked students’ attitudes to the courses to see to see if they were successful.

Emails from The Latin School of Chicago obtained by The Federalist, a conservative news outlet, revealed that former director Elizabeth Denevi introduced a new curriculum to ninth grad students called ‘Social Justice in Physics’ six years ago.

According to one email, which was addressed to parents, the course was meant to ‘address power dynamics, systematic racism, white privilege and the shortage of people of color and women in the field of science, especially physics.’

The email explained that the course was designed by Moses Rifkin, a physics teacher at University Prep in Seattle who claims to work with white teachers to help them understand ‘their privilege and the role they can and must play in working for social justice,’ according to his bio on the Learning for Justice, a branch of the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The course began with discussing the ‘significant underrepresentation of Black American physicists’ and asked students to complete a survey on a range of statements regarding race and racism.

The email also stated that the effectiveness of the course would be tracked through the survey as they hoped students would ‘reflect deeply’ on their lessons.

Please share what the data to date shows. Did the program develop critical thinking and independent analysis? Did it convey the message to 9th grade girls to stay away from STEM because people will be mean to you for the rest of your life?

amazing! simply amazing! I had a dark-skinned fraternity brother (yes! an “all-white fraternity” that even took Jews) majoring in Chem (class of ’62) who never noticed his skin color: nor did we! Just another fraternity brother.

The students know they’re being tracked, and so have every incentive to lie. That tracking poll is worthless.

I laughed out loud at the phrase “the shortage of people of color and women in the field of science.”

A non-article here. I only clicked this to see what the tracking revealed, but the article doesn’t talk about that.

They have a course about “Social Justice in Physics” before the kids try to learn any physics — which realistically some will learn and others won’t. And then they would see that social justice isn’t the main reason for the “representation” we see.

This is like grooming. You go for their psychology before they have any idea what they’re talking about.
