Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a radical school of thought used by the political left to assign racial significance to objectively neutral concepts like history and mathematics. This dangerous agenda insists that America is a racist country and teaches that we are either oppressors or victims.
Critical Race Theory—An Action Plan To Stop Its Implementation
In Tennessee, we believe in equality and opportunity for all. Students should not be discriminated against on the basis of race under any circumstances. Senator Blackburn has been a leader in pushing back against this harmful ideology. The Senator and her colleagues introduced a resolution to condemn the use of Critical Race Theory in K-12 schools and teacher training programs.
Tennessee Governor Bill Lee has already taken important steps by banning CRT lessons from being taught in our schools, but our work is far from over. Ultimately, decisions about what content is taught in classrooms is made by local school districts. Across the country, parents are becoming involved with local governments to protect our children and our communities from the activists who continue to push for CRT.
