FLORIDA BOARD OF EDUCATION APPROVES DESANTISRULE BANNING CRITICAL RACE THEORY

Durante una aparición en “America Reports,” Bridget Ziegler said that she does not want her children or their peers tolearn to hate Americathrough theanti-American curriculumof critical race theory (CRT).

Ziegler went on to assert that CRTpins students against each otherand teaches them to see and judge each other based on their skin color rather than the content of their character.

I believe [CRT] creates a further divide for our students when they really need to be learning foundational skillsets to allow them to be successful members of society,” Ziegler said.

Ziegler, who has three young children, is the only member of the Sarasota County school board that has school-age children and stressed the importance of parent’s involvement in cultivating school policy and curriculum.

She stressed that school boards across the nation are making decisions that are impacting students almostimmediately.

When asked by Trace Gallagher how CRT clashes with her families’ values of diversity and inclusion, Ziegler said she wants her children to understand that all Americans have the opportunity to succeed in life and added that everyone should be treated with respectno matter what their circumstances are.

Ziegler added that she didn’t want children tofeel guiltyor think that they were inherently disadvantaged based on their race or skin color.

Critics of anti-CRT measures have expressed concern that DeSantis and other Republicans are forcing teachers to whitewash some of the injustices perpetrated against minorities in the U.S.

This line of criticism formed a heated debate among profesores, county officials, y padres en Loudoun County, located just outside of Washington D.C. in the state of Virginia.

Gallagher likened the county toground zeroof the debate surrounding CRT.

A Loudoun County supervisor, Juli Briskman, sent a letter of support to the county’s school board describing the resistance of CRT asracism evolvedand accused the public school system of alow level of racial consciousness.

On the opposite end of the argument, one parent of Asian descent likened the curriculum to Maoist China.

You are now teaching—training our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history,” the woman said.

This is indeed the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. CRT has its roots in cultural Marxism. It should have no place in our school,” she later added.
