We’d like to dedicate this post to all of the people who scour the replies to any tweet alleging that critical race theory is being taught in schools and paste, “Critical race theory is only taught in law schools” in response to every reply. That’s one of the lies that people like Joy Reid run with, while at the same time advocating that CRT be taught in schools, even though, as MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace said after Greg Youngkin’s victory, CRT isn’t real.
To be technical, students aren’t taught critical race theory; rather, critical race theory influences the way they’re taught. And as Christopher Rufo shows, here’s the superintendent of Detroit Public Schools saying that the district was very intentional about embedding critical race theory into social studies, language arts, and other disciplines.
Detroit Superintendent @Dr_Vitti: "Our curriculum is deeply using critical race theory, especially in social studies, but you'll find it in English language arts and the other disciplines. We were very intentional about … embedding critical race theory within our curriculum." pic.twitter.com/zMYdSxfrde

“Students need to understand the truth of history … understand the history of this country, to better understand who they are and about the injustices that have occurred in this country,” is how that clip continues, if you were wondering about the context.
Wait, what? I thought this was only in law school courses and that type of thing…..are you telling me that they were not telling the truth?

Hmmm, weren't all the radical leftists saying it wasn't being taught except in some colleges? There's a big difference between education and indoctrination and it's way past time parents stood up and put a stop to this indoctrination.

They only deny CRT is "taught" *as a subject.*
B/c in reality they EMBED it in the pedagogy of ALL subjects.

Leftists: see it's not "taught" it is simply "embedded". You crazy conspiracy theorist, CRT is not taught in school hahahaha.

Guaranteeing these kids will have an external locus of control, and worse educational outcomes.

If progressives really cared about poor black kids, they’d push city schools to focus on the three Rs. That’s the ticket to climbing out of poverty. The harsh reality is progressives don’t give a shit about poor black kids.

Lovely city. Rest of the country should emulate.

Last year, according to the Washington Post, Michigan settled a lawsuit over literacy in Detroit public schools, where in 2017, only 7 percent of eighth-graders performed at or above the proficient level in reading.
MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace says the ‘Trump insurrection endorsed Republican’ won the suburbs because of CRT, ‘which isn’t real’ https://t.co/S4DNqgA1ht
