How Government Promotes CRT

Timothy Birdnow

Here is a great essay on CRT, how it came about and what it aims to accomplish.

Here is a small taste:

Let’s start at the top of the political food chain with the Biden administration’s Department of Education, which is requiring school districts that receive federal funds for one of its "American History and Civics Education” programs to focus on a "national reckoning with systemic racism” and to "incorporate anti-racist practices into teaching and learning.” Grant-funded teachers must teach the core tents of Critical Race Theory, e.g., the "systemic racism, biases, inequities, and discriminatory policy and practice in American history.” They are also required to teach that "equity,” which means equal outcomes, is the solution to America’s race problems.[5]

In 2020, the federal Department of Education funded a conference for teachers and school officials that featured as its keynote speaker the communist activist, Bettina Love, who called for "tearing down” the major institutions of the United States in their current form, including America’s government schools that are "built to manage racism.” Love went on to claim that racism permeates America’s schools, and she further called for "radically changing” government schooling and "tearing down structures” that hinder "anti-racist education.”[6] But Love is a fauxabolitionist. She does not really want to abolish the government schools per se; she wants to capture and control the government schools in order to serve her ideological agenda.

Without question, the principal transmission belt delivering Critical Race Theory directly into the bloodstream of America’s K-12 schools is through America’s teacher-training institutions. For almost thirty years now, CRT has dominated the pedagogic philosophy of the nation’s "ed” schools. As one "ed” school professor put it to me recently, "America’s teacher-training institutions are CRT indoctrination factories.”

One major study of the intellectual and pedagogic interests of several thousand "ed” school professors found that upwards of 48 percent of teacher-training faculty at the 20 top-rated teacher colleges had a research interest in race, diversity, and equity and 24 percent said these topics were their "primary” area of study.[7]

"Ed” school professors have also produced scores if not hundreds of books promoting Critical Race Theory. In fact, CRT has become so pervasive in the world of teacher training that James A. Banks, one of America’s most renowned CRT scholars, has edited and published a series of scholarly book on CRT in K-12 education that contains no fewer than 58 volumes! And literally hundreds if not thousands of academic articles on CRT have been published in the "ed” school academic journals. There is even an "education” journal for "ed” school professors and K-12 teachers named "Whiteness and Education” that publishes articles on promoting the teaching of CRT in K-12 classrooms. The journal describes it aims and scope this way:

Whiteness andEducationpublishes . . . manuscripts that advance critical understandings of the construction and deployment of Whiteness in educational contexts. This includes, but is not limited to, critical discussions of White racism, White identity, privilege, power and intersectionality.

The journal welcomes papers that present empirical studies of Whiteness in education and/or advance theoretical and conceptual understanding of Whiteness in Education, via recognized qualitative and/or quantitative approaches and papers that challenge conventional methodologies. . . . Critically reflective pieces by White scholars, which are explicit in how they contribute to an anti-racist agenda, will be considered.[8]

Notice the last sentence, which suggests that the journal is even open to publishing "White scholars,” but only if they prove their anti-racist bona fides.

Make no mistake about it: Critical Race Theory is openly taught to America’s teachers-in-training. Just go to the website of any college of education and read their mission statement, look at faculty bios and the classes that are being taught, and, most importantly, take a look at the course syllabi used in the teacher-training institutions. A major study of four of the nation’s largest and most influential "ed” schools produced by Jay Schalin for The James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal demonstrated that Critical Race Theory dominates what is being taught to America’s future teachers.[9]Virtually all of America’s future teachers are exposed to, if not thoroughly indoctrinated in, CRT long before they ever step foot in a K-12 classroom. CRT is as ubiquitous in teacher colleges as its proponents say racism is in American society. It’s everywhere.

[...]

It should also be noted that much of what is taught in America’s "ed” schools is driven by their accrediting agencies, which require that America’s future teachers be brainwashed with CRT indoctrination. America’s largest "ed” school accrediting organization, the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), mandates that every accredited teacher-training program demonstrate that all of its future teachers have reflected on "their personal biases” so as to "increase their understanding and practice of equity, diversity, and inclusion.”[11]
