 If you don’t know what Critical Race Theory is, you need to!

Critical Race Theory, or CRT, is racialized indoctrination. It teaches race essentialism and race-based guilt. It argues that white Americans can be reduced to the quality of “whiteness” and must undergo rigorous reeducation to atone for their inborn “white privilege,” “white fragility,” and “internalized racial superiority.”  Other words for CRT include social justice, equity, inclusivity, diversity, cultural proficiency, and culturally responsive.  Read more here:

CRT in Georgia:

·        CRT is not included in the GA Department of Education curriculum standards, yet Critical Race Theory is already being taught by activist teachers in our K-12 public schools.

·        Georgia public school systems and private schools are hiring Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity personnel to implement an "equity policy", a gateway for Critical Race Theory.

·        Critical Race Theory, Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), and Math Equity are all educational movements gaining steam under Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) policies. All of these emphasize the need to teach social justice activism.

·        Activist teachers, K-12, use supplemental materials to teach Critical Race Theory, such as BrainPop(K-8), The 1619 Project, teacher-created surveys, books, and articles, even though CRT is not an approved curriculum.

·        Textbook companies support Critical Race Theory by stating their curriculums support social justice activism, equity and inclusion.

·        Our public school libraries have dramatically increased their selection of books that promote Critical Race Theory, including How to be an Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi and White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo.

·        The Federal Government, through the Department of Education, is about to implement a rule that will offer Federal monies to our Georgia K-12 schools in exchange for teaching Critical Race Theory, 1619 and Action Civics. proposed-priorities-american-history-and-civics

 

How can we stop Critical Race Theory from being taught in Georgia?

1.      We organize and fight back through petitions such as this.

2.      Email/Call Governor Kemp, your State Legislators, your county school representatives, and principals to tell them you do NOT want Critical Race Theory taught in our schools.

3.      Start attending your county school board meetings to understand what policies and textbooks are being considered. Make public comment to speak your mind at school board meetings. Check your county's board of education site for information on their monthly meetings and public comment rules.

4.      Run for your district's board of education seat. We can help and support you!

5.      Get involved in your school. Watch for the buzzwords and learn what your children are being taught. If you see/hear of something questionable, ask the teacher to identify the standard s/he is teaching and request the curriculum. If you are not satisfied, escalate to the principal and potentially your school board representative.

6.      Start a chapter of No Left Turn in Education in your school district or county to get organized and fight back!  We can help you! 

7.      Ask us to come speak to your group. We can increase awareness thru face-to-face or Zoom meetings.
