Supposedly, Democrats chose the “moderate” from the primary field. Every day, President Biden does more to undermine that assumption and remind the country that he is, in fact, a leftist.
Biden will prioritize grants for the teaching of Critical Race Theory, which means many things but which generally holds that our institutions are inherently racist and views race as informing almost everything in our civic life.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Biden’s Education Department proposed the priorities for American history and civics education curricula through a regulation published this week after the president signaled the approach via executive actions taken early in his term.
The first priority’s objective is to encourage “culturally responsive teaching and learning” in schools by giving precedence to grants for “projects that incorporate racially, ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse perspectives” into their syllabuses, according to the guidance.
Quoting from professor and activist Ibram X. Kendi, who popularized his “anti-racist” theory, the idea is to create “identity-safe” classrooms in a post-George Floyd school environment.
