Critical Race Theory - what you didn't learn at the Board presentation

Were you disappointed by the presentation to the Richland 2 Board of Trustees about the difference between Critical Race Theory (CRT) and culturally-relevant teaching (crt)?

Frankly, I was the most disappointed by Helen Grant's response to Lindsay Agostini's question. Mrs. Grant couldn't even tell Trustee Agostini what CRT is.

If I had been the superintendent, the next day Mrs. Grant would have been looking for a new job.

Check out this website for information on CRT:  It's the website of the U.S. Parents Involved in Education. Click on the tab right in the middle of the first line of subjects: CRITICAL RACE THEORY.

It's too bad that Mrs. Grant didn't spend some time on that page before the presentation. Her presentation was not about the Differences.

Oh, but don't worry. Just trust Helen Grant and Teresa Holmes, when they say, "Richland 2 doesn't teach Critical Race Theory." Seriously?

Of course, Richland 2 does not teach Critical Race Theory. Richland 2 doesn't teach theory.

Now what about all those elements of Critical Race Theory that are taught, emphasized, urged, encouraged to be used in the classroom?

Those are what concern many parents of Richland 2 students!!!
