Cal State Fullerton Student Teachers Won’t be Assigned to a District That Banned Critical Race Theory

“The college had six student teachers in the district at the time of the decision to withdraw all student teachers”

Why should they care if Critical Race Theory was banned? Haven’t we been repeatedly assured that it isn’t being taught in schools?

CSU Fullerton pulls student teachers out of district that banned critical race theory

Cal State Fullerton won’t be sending student teachers to Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District next spring. The university’s leadership halted placement of student teachers in the district, in part because of a decision by the district school board to ban the teaching of critical race theory at the school.

“The placement of student teachers in Placentia Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD), at this time, would place us in conflict with our goals to prepare teacher candidates with pedagogical approaches rooted in diversity, equity, inclusion, social justice, race and gender theories, cultural linguistic studies, social emotional well-being, and tenets of critical race theory,” said a statement from the university sent to the district last week.

Critical race theory is typically taught at the university level and is not part of the voluntary state model curriculum for K-12 schools, although it is taught in some districts that have adopted an alternative curriculum. It examines how laws, regulations and government practices have perpetuated racial injustice. Critical race theory is often confused with culturally relevant teaching.

Feedback from teacher candidates who said mentor teachers couldn’t tell them whether they could teach curriculum related to ethnic and cultural differences — areas aligned with state standards for teacher preparation — led to scaled-back placements for fall of 2022, according to an article on the university website.

The college had six student teachers in the district at the time of the decision to withdraw all student teachers, down from the usual 70 to 80 that generally are placed there.

But wait, I thought they didn’t teach CRT. How does the banning of something they don’t teach not align with their goals?

That sounds like a win-win for those districts!!

CRT is the systemic racism the left keeps crying about.

It permeates academia from K-medical school and beyond.

This is the left shooting itself in the foot again, like David Hogg “threatening” that he refused to bring children into a county that didn’t ban guns.

If these wokesters refuses to teach there, you didn’t want them anyway!

Ooh, don’ throw me inter dat briar patch, Bre’r Fox!

    Hmmm…..I am trying to picture the offspring of Hogg and the kind of “woman” that would consider him “father” material.

    I think I have the next alien blockbuster creature!
