“Fui elegido miembro de una junta escolar en Manhattan, donde vivo.. Tengo cuatro hijos en el sistema de escuelas públicas aquí en la ciudad de Nueva York. I spoke out about issues in education that were important and one of the things I spoke out about was that we should focus on education and not so much on ideology, introducing indoctrination and ideology into our schools. And my employer didn’t agree with me and they chased me out of my job over it,” Maron told “Sala de prensa de Estados Unidos.”
Maron wrote a recent op-ed in the New York Post blasting New York City’s public school system for focusing on critical race theory as opposed to basic education such as math and writing.
In the op-ed, Maron wrote that “at a city Department of Education anti-bias training, she was instructed to refer to herself as a ‘white woman’ as if her whole life is reduced to race.”
“Those who oppose this ideology are shunned and humiliated, even as it does nothing to actually improve our broken schools,” Maron wrote.
In Maron’s piece, she noted the “severe budget cuts made by the local government.” The former public defender explained that the DOE spent more than $ 6 million for anti-bias training, which defines qualities such as “worship of the written word,” “individualism” y “objectivity” como “white-supremacy culture.”
Maron said she’s a liberal Democrat but is “questioning the politics” in America and “thinks she is not alone.” Maron agreed with Sharon Osbourne, who said she does not want to return to television because of cancel culture.
“She speaks for a lot of Americans who are afraid they can say something that’s slightly wrong or not permissible and lose their job over it,” said Maron.
Maron highlighted that more than half of NYC schools kids struggle with basic math and English. De acuerdo con la NYS Department of Education 2019 report on state test resultados, 45.6% of students in grades 3-8 were proficient in math and 47.4% of students in grades 3 a 8 scored at proficient levels in English.
De acuerdo con la New York Post, “the city’s overall English proficiency rate edged up by 0.7 percent from the prior year and math scores improved by 2.9 por ciento, the numbers show.”
Considering the “upsetting” academic results in American students, Maron pressed for more of a focus on helping students become more competitive in the job market.
“Those numbers, as upsetting as they are, our long-standing numbers; New York City public schools haven’t been able to budge the state test proficiency numbers for years and years. We’re talking generations of failing kids to teach them how to read and how to write and how to graduate from New York City public schools able to be competitive in a job market,” Maron said.
“We need not just New York city kids but all American kids to be competitive in the global market. Asi que, por supuesto, we have to focus on reading and writing and math and, por supuesto, we have to focus on teaching kids basic skills and not waste time and money in ideological training that doesn’t teach those basic skills and don’t help students with how to learn.”
El plan de estudios de CRT ha provocado una conversación nacional sobre el papel de la raza y el racismo en los distritos escolares de todo el país.. A menudo comparado por los críticos con el racismo real, CRT es una escuela de pensamiento que generalmente se enfoca en cómo las estructuras de poder y las instituciones impactan a las minorías raciales.
Defenders argue that CRT-type training helps enhance dominant groups’ understanding and empathy of what the oppressed experience on a regular basis. These types of trainings have also been promoted as ways to “dismantle” or weaken alleged structures imposing burdens through bias and discrimination.
