Social Justice Homeroom?Teachers Uneasy, Parents Unaware as Charlotte High Schools Preach Critical Race Theory

CHARLOTTE – This is becoming far too common; yet another cache of lesson plans and materials has been obtained showing the explicit preaching of Critical Race Theory and other Woke dogma in our public schools. This time it is Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS), a veteran district when it comes to Woke Education, that is pushing

WBT News obtained over a dozen of the lesson plans and PowerPoint slides provided by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Public Schools and those created from within the school. However, each parent interviewed for this story was unaware these topics, and many others, were taught to kids in 9th-12th grades this school year.

Many of the discussions have made a large section of teachers uneasy by being forced to teach and discuss these types of topics.

“It’s gone on too long,” said one CMS high school teacher speaking on the condition of anonymity for fear of losing their job. “Other districts and other states have people coming forward (to speak out). I’m tired of being told I have to do this and feeling really uncomfortable with it.” […]”
