Do we teach Critical Race Theory?
Well, here I go, off the deep end without a life jacket. Do we teach CRT, do we teach the Bible, do we teach about pretending Colombus discovered America? These questions are endless. Do we continue to have school board members and textbooks telling our kids what to learn. As the old saying goes, What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
It is past time when we stop politicians from deciding what kids must learn. If the door is open to CRT, it is open to whatever that community wants to brainwash kids with their philosophy of life. That has been and will forever be a disastor. In my book I talk about kids making choices, not just puking out what they are told. Colombus didn't discover America yet many cities, counties, days of celebration etc are named after him. And all the Vikings get is a football team in Minnesota,
It is time to let children research, analyze, debate, and defend their thoughts, wherever they land. Use CRT and a wide variety of intellectual writings as references especially as we teach the history of the country. As real learning progresses, students will talk, aloud, about their thoughts and all musty be respected as the debate goes on.
With this process, they go beyond the headline and dig deal into the gits of our history. If their parents tell them not to read about CRT, fine, but they are not told they can't explore the atrocities of this country no matter where they fall. And they are not told they can't listen when some students talk about CRT. And if time goes by and a part of history is not touched, the teachher will guide them to the issue, not the headline.
When children discover learning, they are more apt to internalize it rather than memorize what they have been told.
