Hayward CA School District Approves Noxious “Liberated Ethnic Studies” CRT Curriculum

Hayward CA School District Approves Noxious “Liberated Ethnic Studies” CRT Curriculum

California school district prepares to spend millions promoting race hatred in the guise of “ethnic studies”

On July 27, with no discussion and no dissent, Hayward Unified School District approved a $35,395 contract with the woke group Liberated Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum Consortium (LESMCC) to provide services in connection with Hayward’s new ethnic studies requirement.

LESMCC is the group behind the anti-Semitic model curriculum the California legislature rejected. Although both the ethnic studies bill California eventually passed and Gov. Newsom’s signing statement to that bill branded the rejected model curriculum as biased, bigoted, and discriminatory, the law doesn’t prohibit schools from using it.

We’ve been tracking the development of California’s Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum for a while. You can see some of our past coverage in:

The contract includes fourteen hours of “direct service” by LESMCC staff members to the district’s ethnic studies workgroup, which is responsible for designing and implementing the courses. LESMCC will also provide a full day of professional development as an “introduction to ethnic studies for middle and high school teachers,” and three hours of “debriefing” with the ethnic studies workgroup, the contract abstract says.

Hayward initially approved an ethnic studies policy back in June 2021, reaffirming the district’s “commitment to establishing Ethnic Studies as a graduation requirement by the 2022-23 school year,” as well as to expanding ethnic studies into every grade from preschool through twelfth grade. Hayward’s 2021 press release defined ethnic studies as the “interdisciplinary study of race and ethnicity, as understood through the perspectives of major underrepresented racial groups in the United States: African Americans, Chicanx/Latinx, Asian Americans, and Native Americans/Indigenous groups.” It added, “At HUSD, Ethnic Studies curriculum will include Pacific Islanders and Arab Americans.” In Hayward, Blacks, Hispanics – *ahem* – Latinx, Asian Americans, Native Americans, and Arabs are Officially Recognized Victim Groups. No one else, apparently.

Near the bottom of the page, the press release expressly stated: “The policy and efforts to develop an Ethnic Studies framework are informed by and will include Critical Race Theory and the Liberated Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum.”

The 2021 press release links to the full ethnic studies policy, in which Hayward offered “Special thanks to the Liberated Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum Coalition” and others. The same document specified that the curriculum would:

Include Arab American Studies and Palestinian narratives in the Ethnic Studies curriculum (designed by the Ethnic Studies Planning Group). The District unequivocally values the inclusion of Arab American Studies, particularly in light of the State’s removal of these narratives from the CA Model Ethnic Studies Curriculum in 2021.

The document paid lip-service to acknowledging anti-Semitism (along with racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, classism, and ageism), but Hayward’s curriculum description does not mention it.

Hayward recently received $135,000 from California (out of $50 million released by the state) to implement its ethnic studies requirement. That’s small potatoes, compared to the $40 million Hayward plans to spend on ethnic studies just in its own school district.

Hayward now joins Castro Valley in hiring the racist folks at LESMCC to provide anti-Semitic brainwashing to its students in the guise of teaching them ethnic studies. (Hayward and Castro Valley are adjoining school districts in Alameda County.) Castro Valley is paying $82,560 to LESMCC. Napa Valley school district initially approved a $38,490 contract with LESMCC in April 2022, but a couple of weeks later – after receiving some unfavorable press about it – decided not to move forward with the project.

According to a lawsuit, LESMCC is also disseminating its teaching materials to Los Angeles school district teachers, and providing training to them in how to sneak anti-Semitic content into their classrooms. Other school districts have hired LESMCC principals or staffers (as opposed to contracting with the consortium itself) to develop their own ethnic studies curricula, and/or to train teachers, include Salinas Union High School District, San Diego Unified School District, and Jefferson Elementary School Board.

I think about what $40,000,000 could do for my school. What a waste.

How far would that much money go toward repairing roads or improving water treatment or some other infrastructure improvements?

    I don’t see Jewish people defending white people when they’re attacked. Why is this? Instead I see them claiming they’re not white. Guess what you are because the black and brown aggrevied people see your skin and say you are white!! So stop asking white people to care about you until you Jewish people STOP attacking white people in the media and claiming you’re the real victim when you’re not.

Government schools – America’s best example of totalitarian socialism – in action!

” … defined ethnic studies as the ‘interdisciplinary study of race and ethnicity, as understood through the perspectives of major underrepresented racial groups in the United States: African Americans, Chicanx/Latinx, Asian Americans …”

The student bodies at the more prestigious University of California campuses are upwards of 40% Asian.

They are underrepresented in the sense blacks are underrepresented in the NBA.

The average income of Asian American females has surpassed that of American white males.

It’s a good time to be “underrepresented,” whatever that means.

Any “studies” that focus on “oppressors” and the “oppressed” will eventually have as its main villain the Jews. Especially Jewish males. You can take that to the bank.

Chicanks. Yet another new one to go with Law-tinks.

So… liberation theology? But even more Progressive.

Liberated as in detached from logic and reality. Critical Racists’ Theory presumes diversity [dogma] (i.e. color judgment, class-based bigotry) that denies individual dignity, individual conscience, and intrinsic value, normalizes color blocs (e.g. “people of color”), color quotas (e.g. too many people of yellow), and affirmative discrimination (e.g. allegations of Jew… white privilege) processed under the Pro-Choice ethical religion of Progressive religious, corporate, clinical, etc. sects.

Here’s how good Hayward schools already are …

Elementary: 1 out of 49 is rated over 6/10
Middle: all 31 are rated 6/10 or less
High: 1 out of 28 is rated over 6/10

Now that they’ve jumped on the ethnic studies bandwagon there’s even less reason for hope.

Total disaster.
