RALEIGH – It’s not exactly a newsflash; Critical Race Theory, and all that’s downstream (and upstream) of it, is being embraced by public school administrations. Lately though, that fact is getting a lot of proper attention, as more and more people are identifying, documenting, and speaking out against the Woke Wave that has been washing over our public schools for the last several years.
Vital in pushing back against this aggressive attack on fundamental precepts is the transparency provided by investigative reporting that exposes that which teachers and students are being trained to adopt and spread. On this active front in the culture war, a series from A.P. Dillon of North State Journal exposes the wonderfully Woke anti-racist training Wake County Public Schools teachers must endure.
“Audio and video obtained by North State Journal show Critical Race Theory-themed professional development training conducted by the district’s Office of Equity Affairs (OEA) staff despite one district official’s denials such training existed.
As reported by North State Journal, outgoing assistant superintendent of the OEA Rodney Trice had told Wake County School Board members that Critical Race Theory was not part of the district’s offerings.
Critical Race Theory (CRT) is based in the belief that all facets of society, all people, and history are inherently racist and that resolution or redemption for those people or societal structures is not possible. CRT is based on Marxist Critical Theory, the premise of which divides all aspects of society into two groups, oppressed and oppressors. CRT adapts Critical Theory using a racial lens, with whites as perpetual oppressors and blacks as the oppressed.
The training videos obtained features OEA staff members Christina Spears and Teresa Bunner. Bunner’s title is “Director of Equity Affairs” and Spears is the special assistant to Rodney Trice, the assistant superintendent in charge of the OEA. [CONTINUE READING]”
