What a "Racism is a Public Health Crisis" in Education looks like. There are a ton of these, and we are working on cataloging as many as we can find. But they all are very similar.
@ConceptualJames @realchrisrufo
This district "believes its a moral imperative to overcome these inequities and injustices." This paragraph then finishes with this piece of work: "through prioritized and intentional efforts for racial equity and antiracism."
The Board solidifies its position that the reason for disparities in educational outcome is institutional racism, implicit bias, and prejudice. Because this is a "Moral Imperative," actions must be taken.
Those actions are developed to "promote racial equity and interrupt institutional racism." Basically, they want to open the door for giving more resources and educational aid based solely on race; not on academic need; and this is where things start to get sketchy.
Here is where the indoctrination begins. They want to adopt curriculum that "addresses the Eurocentric curricular and course offerings institutional bias." Code for "Decolonizing" the curriculum and materials.
Not to mention that the Board wants to implement programming for all students to "examine racial identity, white privilege, and institutional racism.
Another sketchy piece to this, and I see this in a lot of these documents; the hiring and retention of "diverse certificated, classified and administrative staff...reflects student racial and ethnic demographics." No wonder California wants to allow for discrimination.
The Board also wants to make sure the $$$$ is aligned for "racial equity priorities." This means that the school budgets need to reflect the allocation of funds to promote the new agenda.
At the end of the action items, we see what @AsraNomani has been fighting in VA. The analysis of AP/honors (and SPED) programs for a racial imbalance. Because the Board sees everything through a systemic racism lens, ANY inequities in programming must be addressed.
Many of these declarations by school districts tend to play out the same way. And what is concerning is how they are using this as an opportunity to give more resources and opportunities to students not based on simply academic need; but, are openly using race.

The School Curriculum: How Woke ideology gets into your child's education. A very brief overview of some of the common school districts and how they manage the curriculum. Image
It was asked recently how teachers can have influence over the school/district curriculum. So the following includes how that happens. First, you need to understand that every school and/or district operates differently. Some drastically, some slightly.
The size of the school district, number of schools in that district, the financials of that district, Public vs. Private vs. Charter, plus many more variables play a role in how curriculums get created, changed, modified.

A How to Guide to Navigating Your Child's Teacher in a Critical Theory/Anti-Racism World.

What follows is some advice, tips, and strategies to work with your child's teacher. This is not an exhaustive list, but hopefully a start to a problem-solving dialogue.
For starters, let me emphasize that most teachers are not fully engrossed in Critical Theory. Some know it, but most just regurgitate what they have been taught in their College of Ed. (we can come back to the COE later). Most teachers care deeply about their students.
A lot of teachers, by their very nature, tend to operate out of what @JonHaidt identifies as the "Care/Harm" and "Fairness/Cheating" Moral Foundations. Unfortunately, Critical Theory manipulates these foundations in the form of "Charity." This is crucial to how you approach them.

We were warned by @BretWeinstein , @HeatherEHeying , @peterboghossian and @ConceptualJames ; as well as through @BenjaminABoyce Documentary about the Evergreen State affair that what happened there would be exported. Well, they were right; and the following proves it.
I covered the other day a bill proposed by Congresswomen Pressley calling for Racism to be a "Public Health Crisis." (PHC) and the creation of a new CDC division that will monitor for racism.
And while they have some valid points, we have to be very wary of giving what @ConceptualJames calls "Charity" to these people. There is a destructive game of bait and switch going on. Using social justice to gain uncontested power.

These are the only definitions that are giving in the whole bill....nothing like the word game that Critical Theorists play. Interesting Rep Pressley does not define "equity"
Structural Racism is the "major barrier" to achieving equity

Back in June I posted that Lawmakers would be pushing to declare racism a “Public Health Crisis”. Well...

And when @AyannaPressley sponsors the bill, you know it’s with the best intentions.

Mark my words, this is an open end around to the legislative process; much like the so called “commerce clause” they will use this to write EOs and ordinances to “legally” discriminate.
