Recently, we helped a parent to push back against the emergence of CRT at their child’s school. Here’s what they had to say… (1/6)
"Our school district launched a student equity page which was filled with extreme CRT resources from people like Kendi, Oluo, Southern Poverty Law Center, Teaching Tolerance, and the National Equity Center. They announced it and started pushing it in our community.” (2/6)
“The example letters and walkthroughs found in the Counterweight toolkit were invaluable to me as I crafted a lengthy letter for our school board president." (3/6)
"I established common ground, explained my concern, backed it up with research, and shared some of the resources found in the “useful organizations” section of the website." (4/6)
"He responded in less than a day, thanking me for my email and agreeing that those resources do not reflect the values of our community." (5/6)
The district webpage was immediately updated. All of the extreme Critical Social Justice resources were removed and replaced with resources rooted in classically liberal principles."(6/6)
