SCOOP: North Carolina’s largest school district launches a campaign against "whiteness in educational spaces"—and encourages teachers to subvert parents and push the ideology of "antiracism" directly onto students without consent.

Here's the story.👇
Last year, the Wake County Public School System, which serves the greater Raleigh, North Carolina area, held a teachers' conference with lessons on "whiteness," "toxic masculinity," "microaggressions," "trauma-informed yoga," and "applied critical race theory."
The conference began with a "land acknowledgement," a ritual recognition suggesting that white North Carolinians are colonizers on stolen Native American land. The conference leaders encouraged educators to form "equity teams" in schools and push the new party line: "antiracism."
School administrators claimed that "(white) cultural values" include "denial," "fear," "blame," "control," "punishment," "scarcity," and "one-dimensional thinking." They told white teachers they must "challenge the dominant ideology" of "whiteness" and "disrupt" white culture.
The district claims that parents are an impediment to social justice. They said that "white parents' children are benefiting from the system" and are "not learning at home about diversity (LGBTQ, race, etc.)." White parents find it "hard to let go of power [and] privilege."
The school leaders directly encourage teachers to subvert parental authority. When one teacher asked, "How do you deal with parent pushback?" the answer was clear: "You can’t let parents deter you from the work." Teachers must "disrupt" whiteness and override families.
This isn’t an aberration. The district's Office of Equity of Affairs now has a $1 million budget and pushes the latest academic fads, including "white identity development," "critical race theory," "intersections of power and privilege," and "antiracist identity and action."
Parents across the U.S. should not assume that their local district is immune to these trends. The new political education is spreading everywhere, including red states.

SCOOP: California's proposed "ethnic studies" curriculum calls for the "decolonization" of American society and has students chant to the Aztec god of human sacrifice. The solution, according to one author, is a "countergenocide" against white Christians.

Here's the story.🧵
California's Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, based on the Marxist "pedagogy of the oppressed," instructs students to "challenge racist, bigoted, discriminatory, imperialist/colonial beliefs" and critique "white supremacy, racism and other forms of power and oppression."
R. Tolteka Cuauhtin, the original co-chair, worked on the early American history material. In the references, he denounces the United States as a "Eurocentric, white supremacist, capitalist, patriarchal, heteropatriarchal, and anthropocentric paradigm brought from Europe.”

SCOOP: A University of Dayton professor is now ranking law schools according to their "total whiteness"—and demanding that they eliminate "excess whiteness" from their campuses and programs.

Here's how it works. 🧵
According to the report, called "The Whitest Law Schools," 94% of law schools have reduced their "total whiteness" in the past 15 years. The goal is to measure and encourage additional year-over-year reductions in "Whiteness points."
The professor recommends that schools reduce "whiteness" by eliminating standardized test scores in admissions and competitive grading in law school courses. In addition, schools should enact explicit race quotas for the "elimination [of] excess whiteness."

SCOOP: The Arizona Department of Education has created an "equity" toolkit claiming that babies show the first signs of racism at three months old and that white children "remain strongly biased in favor of whiteness" by age five.

Let's review the resources in the toolkit. 🧵
The Department of Education recommends a reading that claims babies are not "colorblind" and that parents must instill "antiracist attitudes and actions" beginning at birth, in order for their children to not "absorb bias from the world around them."
Another recommended reading claims that "all white people are white in the context of a society that continues to disadvantage people of color based on race." The document teaches schools how to "change what it means to be white" and inculcate an "antiracist white identity."

SCOOP: Buffalo Public Schools claims “all white people” perpetuate systemic racism and forces kindergarteners to watch a video of dead black children warning them about “racist police and state-sanctioned violence.”

I've obtained whistleblower documents that will shock you.🧵
The story begins with the district's diversity czar, Fatima Morell, who developed a new antiracism curriculum and told teachers they must become “woke” and achieve “critical consciousness,” a Marxist pedagogical concept training students to identify and subvert their oppressors.
In a presentation to teachers, Morell claimed that America “is built on racism” and that “America’s sickness” leads some whites to believe that black people are “not human,” which makes it “easier to shoot [them] in the back seven times if you feel like it.”

SCOOP: A Philadelphia elementary school forced fifth-grade students to celebrate "black communism" and simulate a Black Power rally to "free Angela Davis" from prison.

I've obtained exclusive whistleblower documents and photographs from the school. Here's the story. 🧵
Last year, a fifth-grade teacher at the William D. Kelley School designed a social-studies curriculum to celebrate the political radical Angela Davis, praising the "black communist" for her fight against "inequality" and telling students to "define communist" in favorable terms.
At the end of the unit, the teacher led the ten- and eleven-year-olds into the school auditorium to "simulate" a Black Power rally to "free Angela Davis" from prison, where she had once been held on charges of murder. The students chanted "Black Power!" and "Free Angela!"

SCOOP: Students at the elite United Nations International School launched an anonymous social media campaign denouncing their teachers as "racists" and "oppressors"—and school administrators immediately caved to their demands.

Here's the full story. 🧵…
The saga began last June, when students launched an anonymous Instagram channel and threatened to publicly "cancel" their teachers and principals for their "vast history of systemic racism," "white liberal racist thinking," and "direct, intentional, repeated racial trauma."
Next, the students demanded that the school institute mandatory antiracism trainings, "decolonize" the curriculum, create "safe spaces," support the "exploration of diverse gender identities," reject the "Eurocentric focus of mainstream academia,” and teach "intersectionality."
