0

NewsBusters, the media watchdog, accused the liberal press of lying “shamelessly” and “brazenly” by claiming that critical race theory is not taught in Virginia schools in a new video released on election day for governor.

The CRT, a program based on the notion that American institutions are inherently racist, has become a hot topic for parents concerned about what their children are learning in school, with some saying it unnecessarily divides students by race.

“Critical Race Theory – which is not taught in Virginia public schools,” Jonathan Capehart told the Washington Post on PBS “NewsHour.”

“There is no evidence this was taught in public schools,” an NBC News report said.

“Critical race theory is not taught in Virginia schools,” said a guest on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”.

But these experts rely on an “incredibly limited definition” of CRT, according to NewsBusters, which focuses on “a high-level study examining the intersection between race and other cultural forces.”

“So yes, fifth graders don’t hear college-level seminars on racial identity and intersectionality, but all of the same concepts are still there – deconstructing ‘whiteness’, institutional racism, white privilege. and all the other concepts that everyone (except the media) generally associates with CRT, ”the outlet noted.

Additionally, reports revealed that the Virginia Department of Education recommended a book titled “We Want to Do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom” in March 2020, which told teachers that ‘they’ had to adopt theories such as the Critical Race Theory. “

“Finally, teachers must embrace theories such as critical race theory, settler colonialism, black feminism, disability, critical race studies and other critical theories, which have the capacity to question the anti-blackness… “Bettina, co-founder of the abolitionist education network. Love wrote.

Education has been seen by many analysts as a determining factor in the final stages of the gubernatorial race between Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Glenn Youngkin. National attention was given to parents across Virginia who confronted local school boards about CRT and other progressive curriculum they found inappropriate for their children.

With the race appearing to be tightening, McAuliffe also repeated the disproved claim that Youngkin is trying to ban black perpetrators like Toni Morrison from schools when in reality he only agrees with parents being warned when their children are exposed to graphic material. It was one of the few lies Democrats have been caught in the past week.
