    ‘If you’re a child that’s ten years old and you see that certain racial groups have more, and certain racial groups have less, you’re going to be asking, ‘Why is that the case?” he told the audience.

    ‘And to me, it is the prudent thing to do for teachers to say that the cause of the disparity that you see are the result of racism, are the result of bad rules, are the result of history, and we’re trying to change this.

    As teachersunions nationwide hold their annual gatherings, CRT has been a hot topic of conversation.

    The National Education Association (NEA) during its June 30-July 3 conference passed a resolution that in part would ‘fight back against anti-CRT rhetoric.

    The same union also passed a $56,500 measure to ‘research the organizations attacking educators doing anti-racist work.

    At the union’s national meeting last week, president Becky Pringle urged teachers to prepare students for a society that ‘has wrestled with the sins of its pastand learned from them.

    ‘If this grand experiment in democracy is to succeed, if the inhabitants of our nation are to prosper, we must continuously do the work to challenge ourselves and others to dismantle the racist interconnected systems, and the economic injustices that have perpetuated systemic inequities,’ 그녀가 말했다.

    The union is also considering filing lawsuits to get clarification about new state laws limiting how racism can be discussed in schools, 그녀가 말했다.

    Once an obscure academic idea, critical race theory has become a political rallying cry for Republicans who argue that it sows division and makes children feel guilty for being white.

    But Weingarten said the concept has mostly been taught at the college level and is not taught at the nation’s elementary, middle and high schools.

    She said some of the state laws are so expansive that they appear to prevent any accurate lesson on the Civil War, slavery or its abolition.

    ‘Teaching America’s history requires considering all the facts available to usincluding those that are uncomfortablelike the history of enslavement and discrimination toward people of color and people perceived as different,’ she wrote in her comments.

    And @aphofer asked, ‘So which is it, ‘we aren’t teaching CRT in schoolsor ‘CRT=History?’
