When the Truth Hurts, Hurt the Truth Redux 0

At The Philadelphia Inquirer, a Philadelphia history teacher comments on the coverup. Here’s a bit of what she has to say; follow the link for the rest.

As a white woman teacher who has taught mostly Black and brown students in Philadelphia for 20 years, I know I would be committing educational malpractice if I did not teach the complete history of this nation to my students. As we approach the 4th of July and 245th birthday of this nation, it is only right to acknowledge that by the same year the Declaration of Independence was read in Independence Square, all 13 colonies had legalized slavery.

(snip)

If the anti-critical race theory and anti-truth forces have their way, many Americans — particularly my fellow white people — will not know what historically has been done in our name, and we will be denied the opportunity to acknowledge, understand, and repair it.

Those who know not the truth will live lies.

The Privatization Scam Redux 0

At the San Francisco Chronicle, Jack Schneider and Jennifer C. Berkshire detail how the current ginned-up “controversy” on critical race theory in public schools, where it is not a thing, can be traced back to Ronald Reagan’s hostility to funding the public good. A snippet (emphasis added):

Across the country, Republicans are using the Reagan playbook to roll out a manufactured crisis in the schools. As some observers have noted, many of the staunchest opponents of critical race theory can’t point to a single example of its use in the schools — they can’t even define what it is. That’s because they don’t actually care.

What matters, instead, is generating enough ill will to drive forward the only education policy Ronald Reagan ever cared about: privatization.
