America's largest teachers' union has announced it backs the teaching of critical race theory in schools, wants to hire staff to 'fight back' against those who oppose CRT, and has called for an October 14 rally to be held in honor of George Floyd's birthday.
The National Educator's Association recently approved a resolution to promote critical race theory through its existing channels, work to 'fight back' against opponents of the practice.
It also wants to assemble a team to teach it to union members and create a 'national day of action' to start a dialogue about systemic racism on October 14 – George Floyd's birthday.
The resolution reads that the NEA will 'provide an already-created, in-depth, study that critiques empire, white supremacy, anti-Blackness, anti-Indigeneity, racism, patriarchy, cisheteropatriarchy, capitalism, ableism, anthropocentrism (human centered points of view) and other forms of power and oppression at the intersections of our society.'
It continues to say that the NEA plans to 'publicly (through existing media) convey its support for the accurate and honest teaching of social studies topics, including truthful and age-appropriate accountings of unpleasant aspects of American history, such as slavery, and the oppression and discrimination of Indigenous, Black, Brown, and other peoples of color, as well as the continued impact this history has on our current society.
'The Association will further convey that in teaching these topics, it is reasonable and appropriate for curriculum to be informed by academic frameworks for understanding and interpreting the impact of the past on current society, including critical race theory.'

Truth-in-advertising would require them to all it Communist Race Theory.
GET THEM THE HELL OUT OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEMS!!
Time for home-schooling to take off.
Of course they support it..its ALL about indoctrination, to teach America’s young from birth that America is racist and evil and that you need to hate your own race..its the only way they can continue having more Democrat voters. Well I wont stand for it..my sister is moving to Calabasas, hopefully over there they will teach different will find out before my nephew enrolls..wont stand for this crap
Just make it a Felony for any Public School Teacher to send thier children to a Private School.
Close their schools.
Put them all out of work.
“Defund the teachers” “Re-imagine education”
Coming to your neighborhood — money follows the student wherever the student chooses to go (public or private school).
The case may have to go to the Supreme Court — but it’s all about freedom to the student, not the Communist Race Theory unions.
This has been festering for a long time.
It’s time for change.
the marxist revolution continues...
marxists want your kids... just like the LGBTQ mafia.
PLEASE start an ONLINE teaching system that can be served by STARLINK at a special rate so we can actually EDUCATE our kids again.
The “”Teachers”” have ruined education in America.
After the virtue signaling, do they actually believe that racist nonsense?
Example: “All white school teachers retain latent systemic white racism which they cannot expunge. We have a petition to present to the school board. Will fire all white teachers on the payroll and replace them with persons of color and LGBTQ+.”
Still on board, leftist teachers?
The parents elect the school board not the other way.
Time to sit on the marxists
they are gonna fight hard to be able to teach racism-
The “SCHOOL BOARD” & “THE UNION” are one & the same.
NOT like when I was a kid & the school board was the local PARENTS.
“ create a ‘national day of action’ to start a dialogue about systemic racism”
Start? START a dialog? The dialog about systemic racism has been going strong for >160 years.
The teachers work for US - not the other way around.
If they want to force their views they’re free to find another line of work.
