    Funded exclusively by government money, both federal and state. AKA: Public School. Private schools are not funded exclusively by government monies. Indeed most (in many cases all) of their money comes from charging their customers and donations from private individuals. Just because it has the word "prep" in its name does not mean that it is a private school. Indeed the name even has the word "public" in it. And if you had looked at the link I had provided you then you would have seen that they even label themselves as a public school. Think I'll take their word of what they are over yours. You should to since I'm sure they know what they are better than you know them.

    No. Claiming that black people have lower average intelligence than white people (like you did) is white supremacist propaganda. Which doesn't necessarily mean you're a white supremacist. It only means you are repeating their propaganda. Whether or not you do that inadvertently is not for me to judge.

    I also pointed out that Asians score higher than whites so technically it would be asian supremacy.
    The blacks have a lower than average Intelligence quotient, if you prefer and my point remains the same.

    Im not exactly thrilled that the CRT injected into traditionally funded public schools has spread to the public charter schools as well. Its also present in many private schools.

    But it is not under direct control of the school district as it operates across the country.
    No, not a typical government-run public school where the school district exercises day-to-day control over operations. A parent who complains has a lot more power over a government-run school than one with out-of-state management chartered by the school district.
    But not in this case. The money comes from the school district.
    It's a private contractor paid hired by the school district. My personal preference would be school vouchers, but this might be better in some ways than a government-run school. Would a government-run school get away with promoting CRT? Less likely.
    I looked and that's how I know they're not under direct school district control.
    Maybe you should read your own cite and stop making unwarranted assumptions about my views.

    It's funded by public funds. You should take the loss here and go back to the No True CRT fallacy leftists normally use.

    CRT is not part of traditional (government-run) public schooling. If you want to find it, look to private schools and privately-run chartered schools. Most public school social studies teachers would be thoroughly disgusted by any teacher who told a child to be ashamed of how they were born.

    I can't say it never happens in a government-run school because there are more than 100,000 public schools in the country.

    Nonsense. The Biden administration guidance to every single traditionally funded public schools in the US opening with COVID present included links to the Abolitionist Teaching Network. The book "Not my idea" has been documented as being used in over 30 school districts so far. 1619 Project is used in 1000s of schools.

    I don't care about links on a government website.

    I worked with public school teachers for decades. There is much about their politics I don't like, but they're not the kind of people who would ever tell a young person they should be ashamed to be who they are. Doing something that despicable is unthinkable.

    You have no idea what you're talking about where public school teachers are concerned. I thought you might be interested in straightening out your thinking.

    Most of the teachers and all of the teachers unions seem to be 100% in support of CRT and its theories regarding whiteness.

    Why would it be a smear to associate most teachers with what their unions have publicly announced?

    Teachers union disagrees

    2. Supporting and leading campaigns that:
    • Result in increasing the implementation of culturally responsive education, critical race theory, and ethnic (Native people, Asian, Black, Latin(o/a/x), Middle Eastern, North African, and Pacific Islander) Studies curriculum in pre- K-12 and higher education;......
    C. 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.

    E. Conduct a virtual listening tour that will educate members on the tools and resources needed to defend honesty in education including but not limited to tools like CRT.

    F. Commit President Becky Pringle to make public statements across all lines of media that support racial honesty in education including but not limited to critical race theory.

    "Join with Black Lives Matter at School and the Zinn Education Project to call for a rally this year on October 14—George Floyd’s birthday—as a national day of action to teach lessons about structural racism and oppression—even in places where it is illegal and requires civil disobedience."

    The union is trying to have it both ways because there is a tone deaf element among teachers defending the more reasonable academic look at racism and seem oblivious the racism of some CRT advocates.

    Again, if you give a damn about being fair to schools and teachers, there is no way white kids are being told they should be ashamed of being white.

    Of course Conservatives have a problem with Racism and Islamophobia. To most African Americans, Muslims, and Jews this is a deal-breaker.


    But Liberals support Totalitarianism and Presumption of Guilt. This is a deal-breaker for many others.

    I understand 75% of Jews who are Democrat -- I do not hold their views against them. But I am among the 25%. Both sides have major flaws. Racism is definitely a Conservative flaw.

    I do not support either of those. I don't know any liberal who does. I've never even heard of a liberal who supports that. By definition, anybody who supports either of those is not a liberal.
