Bettina Love, the group’s co-founder, touted her “social-emotional learning” program in a July 2020 meeting and said that the curriculum was to be viewed through a model centered on “equity.”
“I’ve been teaching now for 19 years and I’ve been doing this work of completely disrupting systems in elementary schools and school systems for this 19 jare,” said Love.
Later in the clip, another board member of the group, David Stovall, said that it was important for the Network to be “diligent” en “explicit” in its fight against White supremacy when educating children.
Various members of academia and the media have asserted that critical race theory is not a tangible curriculum and rather a construct created by Republicans to attack Democrats.

Jones vertel “jakkals & Vriende” that the Abolitionist Teaching Network’s messaging appeared to be an example of a progressive and Marxist worldview wherein activist teachers impose their ideologies on other teachers.

Hours after publication, a Department of Education spokesman told Fox News: “Die Departement onderskryf nie die aanbevelings van hierdie groep nie, dit weerspieël ook nie ons beleidsposisies nie. It was an error in a lengthy document to include this citation.”
Jones urged parents to beat these “thought leaders” to the punch, and be attentive to what their children are or are not learning.
