“These lesson plans … reflect how ADL has lost its way. It substitutes racial justice dogma and ideology for fact-based analysis.”
The investigation found evidence of Critical Race Theory, which the ADL supposedly doesn’t embrace. Our own Professor Jacobson is quoted in the article.

Anti-Defamation League launches review of education content after Fox News Digital investigation
The Anti-Defamation League announced in a statement that the organization is reviewing its education content after a Fox News Digital investigation into the curriculum it offers to teachers and students.
A Fox News Digital investigation found that the ADL — which was originally founded more than 100 years ago to combat the anti-Semitic defamation of American Jews — included concepts from critical race theory (CRT) as well as far-left ideas within its education wing.
In a statement to Fox News Digital, an ADL spokesperson stated that they don’t teach critical race theory but admitted how some of their curriculum materials are “misaligned” with their values:
ADL is guided by a mission statement that was written when the organization was founded in 1913: our purpose is to ‘stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.’ This mission compels us to fight antisemitism and all forms of bigotry and prejudice, from virulent anti-Zionism to vicious xenophobia. In service to our mission, we have developed anti-bias and anti-hate education programs over the past four decades. These programs are designed to educate students and help them confront hate. We are proud we have helped millions of children across America learn to challenge bias, discrimination, and hate against all people.
We do not teach Critical Race Theory, period. …
The ADL’s post about “Engaging Young People in Conversations about Race and Racism” contained “key elements of critical race theory,” Legal Insurrection founder Bill Jacobson said.
The article discussed how the “flip side of white privilege is structural racism, which oppresses and marginalizes people of color through societal institutions like education, law enforcement, voting, employment and other systems” and encouraged teachers to show MTV’s documentary “White People” to students.
“Those concepts are accepted as fact as a starting point rather than open to debate. There are no counter-arguments presented,” Jacobson told Fox News Digital about the lesson plans he reviewed. “These lesson plans … reflect how ADL has lost its way. It substitutes racial justice dogma and ideology for fact-based analysis. This is not education, it’s manipulation.”
