Buckle Up for a Critical Race Curriculum

Joe Biden’s education secretary has big plans for race-conscious learning nationwide.

Once Joe Biden is inaugurated on January 20, it’ll be time for everyone to look forward to and focus on the future. After all, it’s not only Biden but also the people he’ll bring into his administration who will call the shots over the next four years.

One of Biden’s key players is Miguel Cardona, former Connecticut commissioner of education, and Biden’s choice for education secretary. We all knew Biden would do whatever he could to undermine or roll back the progress made by President Donald Trump and now former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, but Cardona is planning on a more extreme agenda.

If Cardona’s history is any indication, our kids will likely be learning a lot about critical race theory (CRT) in the Biden years.

Promoted as a way to make sure the voices of people of color are included in education, CRT teaches young people to despise the foundations of our civilization. This typically includes an assault on the free market, individualism, religion, the traditional family structure, and the like.

As Connecticut’s commissioner of education, CRT is what Cardona pushed. There, the Anti-Racist Teaching and Learning Collective helped develop the curriculum and provides teachers with professional development opportunities so they can become “anti-racist” advocates. Their recommendation to the State Education Resource Center also prepares students to become anti-racist leaders in their communities.

This may not seem like a big problem on the surface, but leftist political ideology has increasingly seeped into our schools in recent decades. It’s one of the reasons why so many young people are ready to throw away our institutions and traditions. The kids we teach today will be in power tomorrow.

If Biden and Cardona have their way, when today’s kids become tomorrow’s leaders, they’ll be carrying the torch for the far Left.

Before Cardona is given the green light to push CRT in our schools, the Biden administration will first rescind President Trump’s executive order banning it. Last fall, Trump signed an executive order stating that critical race theory “is rooted in the pernicious and false belief that America is an irredeemably racist and sexist country; that some people, simply on account of their race or sex, are oppressors; and that racial and sexual identities are more important than our common status as human beings and Americans.”

As Max Eden, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, writes in City Journal, “Most Americans, of any color, reject the premise of inherited guilt based on race, or the demonization of any group by virtue of immutable characteristics. Promotion of critical race theory in schools would produce a backlash and do nothing to promote the healing and national unity that Biden claims to seek.”

Eden adds, “It seems all but certain that on education, Biden will govern to the left of Barack Obama.”

Rather than teaching our children what unites all Americans, Cardona as secretary of education will make sure our children learn to hate their country. Throw in Biden’s opposition to school choice and his plan to reassert Obama’s Title IX protections to include “gender identity,” and we’ve got a tough period ahead for the most vulnerable and impressionable citizens: our children.

It’s time to buckle up and brace for an onslaught of leftist ideology in our nation’s classrooms. But knowledge is power, and parents who know what’s being taught in our schools don’t need to wait for the next election to protect their kids from the poisonous precepts of critical race theory.
