Christopher Rufo is our usual clearinghouse for whistleblower documents on critical race theory that come from public schools and government agencies. This next batch is from a master’s degree course in education, and a student in the program sent some example documents to Rod Dreher, who wrote up his findings in The American Conservative.
There’s really nothing here that we haven’t seen before: There are the many tenets of critical race theory, including the permanence of racism and whiteness as property — of color, of culture, etc.
A reader in a master's program for Education leaked to me CRT documents from a course required for graduation. It's straight-up racist ideological indoctrination. Again: what are they preparing this country for? @realchrisrufo https://t.co/pqItRclgwV

Future teachers are asked to answer questions like this one:
Based on what you learned about CRT’s second tenet — Whiteness as Property — who questions decisions that are made when the needs of Black or Brown students are seemingly considered “before” White students? How do you believe equity [can] ever be achieved in schools if Whiteness as Property continues to question why some of its “rights” are being infringed on by those who do not seemingly represent Whiteness?
Students in the class are also asked to answer the questions, “Where do you believe you show up on the Racial Identity Model that relates to your skin color? Why is it important to know where we show up on the Racial Identity Model as educators?”
Note how there can be no answer for the underperformance of minority students in class other than white racism. These ideologues insist that reality must conform to the tenets of the ideology.
I ask again, as I did late last week: What are they preparing us for?
We’re prepared for a lot of students not to be prepared for life if focusing on getting the correct answer to a math problem is seen as “whiteness.”
The identity commissars are expanding their reach and red states must draw the line: no race essentialism, collective guilt, or neo-segregation in public institutions.

And that is the way they need to fight it. They need to call out racial essentialism as racism. They need to highlight how it advocates neo-segregation and remind people that separate is inherently unequal.

In my program (foreign languages) we were forced to cut dramatically the # of courses future teachers have to take in the actual discipline to make room for this kind of courses. Now we graduate teachers who don't know the discipline but can recite all the woke slogans.

Remember CRT is a THEORY, not a proven principle or law of nature. The part of it that is being promoted states white folks, govt, private structures are irredeemably racist. So, to remove racism in the country, those things have to be dismantled.

The nuclear family has to be dismantled … or at least disrupted, according to the founders of Black Lives Matter.
