Texas professor blasts ‘activist’ faculty over pro-CRT resolution: 私は行動志向の人なので、何かをしています

The resolution voices support for faculty members tailoring courses and curricula around the controversial theory. It was passed partly in response to legislation in Texas limiting the teaching of CRT in K-12 education and to express solidarity with educators seeking toteach the truth in U.S. history and civics education.” これまで, the Texas state legislature has not passed anything related to teaching in higher education.

だが, the University of Texas at Austin Associate Professor Richard Lowery told co-host Todd Piro that social justice activists on campus don’t just want to express their ideas, but want to “力” others to adhere to them and implement them across required studies.


They’ll take over classes, and they’ll take over required classes, and then you can’t get through that class if you don’t express the ideas that they want you to express,” Lowery said.

Lowery went on to say that the university has implementedflag requirements,” which are essential to graduate. He asserted that students must engage in “アクティビズム” and learn about critical race theory to earn the flags.

According to the University of Texas at Austin ウェブサイト,The Skills and Experience Flags are a unique and innovative feature of all undergraduate degrees at The University of Texas at Austin. The Flags are designed to provide the enriched education that all students will need to become effective future leaders in our society and a constantly evolving workplace.

Students must earn flags in six areas, which include cultural diversity in the United States, 倫理, and Global Cultures.

Lowery added that there has been areal shiftin Texas education over the past several decades, favoring anactivist coreover objective reasoning and education.

So many of the faculty view themselves as activists first and educators and researchers maybe second or third at best,” said the associate professor.

In a video message on Tuesday Lowery blasted the resolution and fellow faculty.

The legislature trusted you to be the right people to judge the curriculum and to focus on education and keep politics out,” said Lowery. “They didn’t give you autonomy, so you could turn our school into a social justice indoctrination camp.
