I have done some research on Critical Race Theory (CRT), especially after seeing these 4 pages in a Merrimack Valley School District School Board (MVSD) Meeting Packet from February.
I read those 4 pages of the information on curriculum revisions many times. I even picked out some subject matter from the Middle School level on “Dismantling White Supremacy Culture.” I Googled that, and at the end of one article, it listed a “drWorksBook” and the website www.dismantlingracism.org.
We want to thank Louise Andrus for this op-ed. If you have a Letter or other content you want
us to consider for publication, please submit it to Skip@GraniteGrok or Steve@GraniteGrok.com.
I went to the website and among the listed headings was “Racism Defined.”
Under that heading, found the following:
The idea (ideology) is that white people and the ideas, thoughts, beliefs, and actions of white people are superior to BIPOC communities and people and their ideas, thoughts, beliefs, and actions. While most people associate white supremacy with extremist groups like the Ku Klux Klan and the neo-Nazis, CRT teaches that white supremacy is ever-present in our institutional and cultural assumptions that assign value, morality, goodness, and humanity to the white group while casting Black, Indigenous, and People of Color as worthless (worth less), immoral, bad, and inhuman and “undeserving.”
Drawing from critical race theory, the term “white supremacy” also refers to a political or socio-economic system where white people enjoy structural advantage and rights that other racial and ethnic groups do not, both at a collective and an individual level. For more, go to the white supremacy culture page.”
This told me that we, the taxpayers, are paying for teachers to teach this white privilege and white supremacy propaganda to the children of the MVSD.
My question is how does the school board school justify, condone, and uphold this racist indoctrination of our students in the MVSD??
This whole Critical Race Theory is racist.
If the school district is spending more time (in my opinion) on teaching trash of divisive concepts it’s no wonder the test scores of students in reading, math, and science are low.
Many parents are pulling their children from public schools. When are we going to sit down and have an adult conversation and ascertain what the real problems are, and fix those problems rather than just turning our heads the other way and ignoring the subject?Feb 2021 MVSD Update Curricular Revision CRT
