These two extremes we've been presented with, implementing critical theory or banning it, are the source of so much pain and hate. In one hand we have people wanting to use our children as a social experiment to test these dangerous, unproven theories. In the other we have people looking to outright ban critical theory
The first and most important thing to know is your students and your community are here for you! The COVID-19 pandemic hit all of us hard, and you not only had to take care of your own life but also those of your students. Thank you!
While we may be emerging from the pandemic, we are still in the thick of things with critical theory. We also understand it would be entirely unfair to expect you to stand up and push back on critical theory in your school community. As we've shown here at Critical Truth for all to see, pushing back or standing out in any way can cause you to lose your job and make it extremely hard to find a new one. So what can you do?
We've consulted with educators, school administrators, school board members, parents, and others in our communities to develop a simple approach. We believe these actions below can be the most effective and least risky ways you can help fight critical theory:
Save copies of controversial communications from leaders and other staff members, record meetings where critical theory (aka anti-racism) is discussed, and document any concerns you have.
Did you recently have a school board election? If so, find those who openly ran against critical theory. Search the web, Facebook, or Nextdoor for local groups against CRT. Even in the most left-leaning states, there are voices of reason all around.
It's as easy as setting up a different email account on sites like Google, Yahoo, or many other free services. You can even set up a separate phone number with Google Voice. This new age of technology brings forth many choices to discretely share information!
