Critical race theory seeks to change the way history is taught in America, and it starts with our children.
Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell is concerned about what this means for schools and ultimately our children’s education. McConnell warns of the dangers of government involvement in what is being taught in classrooms across America.
McConnell’s comments come after the Biden administration seeks to “promote more ‘culturally responsive teaching and learning.’” One example of this more responsive curriculum involves teaching the 1619 Project – a series of essays from the New York Times Magazine that reexamines slavery.
“‘Critical race theory, the 1619 Project and the crusade against American history is toxic propaganda, ideological poison, that, if not removed, will dissolve the civic bonds that tie us together, will destroy our country,’ Trump said at a press conference last September”
McConnell said “Americans do not need or want their tax dollars diverted from promoting the principles that unite our nation toward promoting radical ideologies meant to divide us.”
Everyone can agree that culturally responsive teaching is a great initiative, but at what cost? Will teachers be forced to rewrite history so that it is culturally inclusive? Will the American History that we know today become a thing of the past because of the actions of our ancestors? At what point do we say enough is enough and teach history how it actually happened?
