Guardians in Virginia’s Albemarle County are suing their school districts pioneers and board individuals, charging they are “indoctrinating” understudies with purported critical race theory, disregarding the republic’s constitution.
“A state-funded school ought not, and for this situation under the law can’t, influence kids in a ruinous, race-based philosophy,” Ryan Bangert, senior counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom, the team addressing guardians, told the news on Thursday.
Critical race theory is the academic contention, tracing back to the 1970s, that U.S. laws are intrinsically racist.
Concerns about understudies being shown CRT educational programs have lately turned into a flashpoint with guardians across the district, especially in Virginia, sparkling heating trades at educational committee gatherings, recent legitimate charges, and challenges against school authorities and board individuals.
In the interest of nine guardians, Bangert filed the suit, C.I. v. Albemarle County School Board.
He contends understudies are “being informed that their race characterizes them, and that’s it.”
