CRT Author Pushes To Silence Parents' Voices
Some of you may have never even heard of Nikole Hannah-Jones but she has played a fairly large role in stoking racial tensions in the US by authoring the 1649 project. In her project, the NYT writer claim,, among many, is that that American patriots' fought the American Revolution in large part to preserve slavery in North America.
Hannah-Jones continually pushes her work despite being ridiculed by fact-checkers for posing her wildly imaginative writings as truth. She now wants to have parents who stand against Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the classroom saying that they should be silenced,"I don't really understand this idea that parents should decide what's being taught," Jones complained.
HANNAH-JONES: Well, I would say the Governor's race in Virginia was decided based on the success of a right-wing propaganda campaign that told white parents that they needed to fight against their children being indoctrinated, as race -- as being called racist but that was a propaganda campaign. And there are a lot of black parents in Virginia, there are a lot of Latino parents in Virginia, and they were not being featured in that coverage. And what they wanted for their kids' education, which is more teaching about race, more teaching about the history of racism, seemed to have fallen on deaf ears.
So, I think we should frame that question properly. And I don't really understand this idea that parents should decide what's being taught. I'm not a professional educator. I don't have a degree in social studies or science we send our children to school because we want them to be taught by people who have expertise in the subject area. And that is not my job.
When the Governor or the candidate said that he didn't think parents should be deciding what's being taught in school, he was panned for that, but that's just the fact. This is why we send our children to school and don't home school. Because these are the professional educators who have the expertise to teach social studies, to teach history, to teach science, to teach literature and I think we should leave that to the educators. Yes, we should have some say but school is not about simply confirming our worldview. Schools should teach us to question they should teach us how to think, not what to think.
