Research Shows Opposition to Critical Race Theory is ‘Far From Over’

“It’s going strong, and it’s not slowing down.”

The public is beginning to understand the threat this ideology presents in education. The battle is not over, not evn close.

Exclusive: New Data Shows the Anti-Critical Race Theory Movement Is ‘Far From Over’

It’s been more than two years since President Joe Biden revoked Donald Trump’s Sept. 2020 executive order aimed at banning the teaching of “divisive concepts” in federal offices’ diversity training—a response to the increase in anti-racism sessions in workplaces and schools in the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder. But Biden’s decision galvanized conservatives, who successfully pushed to replicate the ban in state laws and school board measures and wage an all-out war against “critical race theory” (CRT), which looks at the way legal systems and other aspects of society perpetuate racism and exclusion.

Now, for the first time, a University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) study provides a snapshot of the effort to regulate how race is discussed in the U.S. by putting a number on these acts at the federal, state, and local level, and quantifying their impact.

In the report “Tracking the Attack on Critical Race Theory,” provided exclusively to TIME, a team at the law school tracked legislation, executive orders, state attorney general letters, and statements by governors and local school board officials, and found that between Jan. 1, 2021 and Dec. 31, 2022, federal, state, and local government officials introduced 563 anti-CRT measures. Nearly half—241—were enacted or adopted.

“The anti-CRT movement is very far from over,” says LaToya Baldwin Clark, one of the authors of the report and an assistant professor at UCLA School of Law. “It’s going strong, and it’s not slowing down.”

Twenty-eight states took some kind of statewide anti-CRT action—whether it was a letter from the state attorney general or a resolution, for example—and 16 of those states enacted anti-CRT legislation. In every state except Delaware, at least one anti-CRT measure was introduced.

CRT — a “theory” so good they have to impose, because they can’t convince.

Like many of the pseudo-progressive notions made policy, in the end it names winners to award power and relevance, taken from losers based on some category reason, not what they’ve done. it’s an extortion and patronage formula. That’s what they do.

This one’s not so well done. They picked a grift without enough take for all the hands out, and the marks feel the pinch before it’s too late.

Didn’t we used to have a better criminal class?

    “CRT — a “theory” so good they have to impose, because they can’t convince.”
    They have to convince kids, because they can’t convince anybody with developed brains.

This is good news, and I’ll take it.
We need some kind of positive development amidst the madness.
