More Than 5,000 Woke Teachers Will Teach CRT in Defiance of Laws, Parent Wishes
So far, according to the Zinn Education Project, the pledge has been signed by more than 5,000 educators in all 50 states, and many of the signees were more than happy to provide their reasons for signing. Needless to say, some of them were quite shocking.
"How can we teach future generations to disrupt systems if we are not willing to speak the truth about the systems?" one wrote.
"Justice and liberation for my students," agreed another.
Perhaps the most arrogant of all comments was written by one who contended: "Teachers have a right to teach the subjects to the best of their ability without interference from lawmakers who know nothing about professional education.
"We also do a disservice to students when we decide that they cannot cope with difficult or challenging concepts. Calling this teaching indoctrination shows no respect for young people's cognitive and critical abilities."
The problem with arguments like that is that when students are being expelled for their parents having "incorrect opinions," or are publicly shamed for being white, there is no critical thinking or recognition of cognitive abilities involved; it's indoctrination, pure and simple.
