When everything’s a crisis, nothing is a crisis!
When everything is a catastrophe, then what’s not a catastrophe?
When we’re all in panic, is the pandemic far behind?
But don’t doubt for a second there’s not a crisis, a catastrophe, a panic, and a pandemic brewing in our American educational system.
Naturally, when we talk about elementary, middle, or public high school education today, we are rightly obsessed with cancer that is Critical Race Theory (CRT). However, our real fear is that if CRT isn’t stopped, it will metastasize across all educational domains, resulting in, among other disturbing outcomes, a racial war among our children.
Parental hysterics over public school adoption of Critical Race Theory tenants is not only righteous but critically important if we’re going to arrest race-baiting and skin color as an excuse for the failure of African American and Hispanic American student performance. Moreover, we must reduce the heated fiction among ourselves before igniting a race fire we can’t quickly extinguish.
As for Black and Hispanic students, according to Critical Race Theory proponents, White European culture is deeply ingrained in American society. CRT claims the ever-persistent stream of White cultural racism dominates all social interactions at the expense of African and Hispanic Americans. But they fail to account for the success of Asian American students.
Nevertheless, according to CRT enthusiasts, racial discrimination, predominately discrimination and segregation of Black and Hispanic students, remains dominant in public education, relegating these minorities to under-funded, poor-quality schools. They claim this, in turn, dooms Black and Hispanic Americans to perpetual poverty and second-class citizenship.
