My article in today’s Mail on Sunday about how Critical Race Theory has infiltrated many schools in the UK.

I'm getting many messages asking for more context. If you want to see what happens when Critical Race Theory is brought into schools, watch the Channel 4 documentary I mention in the article.

Here's a helpful analysis of this educational experiment by Howard Sherwood.

Since the #DontDivideUs initiative was launched, we have been inundated with emails from teachers, governors and parents about the introduction of CRT (Critical Race Theory) in schools. More information here:

This thread offers a typical example of the concerns of parents. In this case, from a school in Richmond.
Note the clear emphasis on CRT in the resources.
Here, a headteacher cautions against these new trends.
Best-selling children’s literature is now overtly politicised. For example, “Antiracist Baby”...
Here's an article by a teacher highlighting the proliferation of "unconscious bias" training in schools.

An important article by @calvinrobinson about the legality of CRT in schools: “As a school leader, I have been contacted by a number of head teachers who are increasingly under pressure from both teachers and parents to be seen to be doing something.”
telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/07/1…
And here is Adrian Hart on how "the imminent adoption of a racialised curriculum by schools will wind the clock back decades".

Multiple links here to school resources underpinned by Critical Race Theory: equaliteach.co.uk/wp-content/upl…
Many schools have issued statements in which they make their commitment to CRT clear. The headmaster of Eton, for instance, has pledged to "decolonise" the school's curricula, diversify its staff and address "structural racism".

The Chartered College of Teaching has openly endorsed Critical Race Theory and has distributed resources to schools across the UK.

Suggested pledge for business owners:

• Will we never discipline or fire members of staff on the basis of pressure from online activists.

[1/6]
• We have no interest in our employees’ political opinions, and how they choose to express themselves outside the workplace is no business of ours.

[2/6]
• We will not probe into our employees’ thoughts with “unconscious bias training”, or force them to undertake workshops that presuppose the existence of “systemic injustice”.

A short thread on BLOCKING!...

I have seen SO many examples of people I have blocked claiming that this is a violation of their free speech.

It isn't.

That would be like E.L. James claiming that I've violated her free speech because I haven't read "Fifty Shades of Grey".
I never block people for politely disagreeing with my view. I've seen many people claiming that I do, but they usually post an unrepresentative screenshot.

Anyone who has been blocked by me will rarely post the screenshot of why they were *actually* blocked.

For obvious reasons
For me, the criteria are simple. I block anyone who:

- Throws insults.
- Refuses to engage in good faith.
- Deliberately misrepresents my point of view.
- Is palpably insane.
- Expresses a desire to drink my bathwater.

A thread about freedom of speech:

“We, and all forces, follow College of Policing guidance in relation to handling reports of hate incidents, which can often be a precursor and can escalate to more serious crimes and we, as the police, have a responsibility to prevent crime”
1/6
So there you have it. The UK police, by their own admission, are committed to the investigation of precrime (to borrow Philip K. Dick's term).

More disturbingly, this is clearly a nationwide policy. This isn't one rogue officer at Humberside, but general practice.

2/6
The police are doing a difficult job under difficult circumstances. These directives have come from above. The government's new website on "hate crime" as well as that of the Crown Prosecution Service outline the concept of "non-crime hate incidents".
