Documents obtained by Judicial Watch and provided to Fox News show the superintendent of Montgomery County Public Schools in Maryland instructing principals that “all schools will be required to implement a student psychoeducational lesson” to “provide students crisis facts about the dual pandemic (COVID-19 and systemic racism) that is occurring around the country and here in Montgomery County”
Maryland schools have been telling children there's a "double pandemic" of both Covid and "systemic racism" 🤨 https://t.co/143Sz9pJqZ

Of course, there’s Ibram X. Kendi in the recommended reading — his book “Antiracist Baby” is “the perfect gift” for “ages baby to age 3.” But one slide even presents books about racism and social justice for pre-K and kindergarten students.
Fox News reports:
“We are currently living through a dual pandemic with COVID-19 and the Systemic and Structural racism occurring worldwide,” the instructor coaches teachers to say. “A pandemic is defined by an outbreak of a disease that occurs over a wide geographic area and affects an exceptionally high proportion of the population. As you can see from this slide [featuring a Black Lives Matter protest poster], both are affecting lives of people in our community and around the world.”
A glossary slide for secondary schools claims that “Systems of Oppression identifies inequity by calling attention to the historical and organized patterns of mistreatment. In the United States systems of oppression (like systemic racism) are woven into the very foundation of American culture, society, and laws.”
Superintendent in Alexandria said something very similar. https://t.co/7OPImokVZ7

Two words: teacher trainings.

As several teachers posted, critical race theory is in schools; they can say they don’t teach it, but the districts teach it to the teachers and expect them to implement the theory in the curriculum. Just don’t tell the parents.
Yet there is no CRT in schools.
