When students return to school in the fall, they’ll be subjected to a newly created anti-racist curriculum (“The ‘anti-racist drive to turn schools into woke propaganda mills,” The New York Post, June 22). Teachers will be encouraged to incorporate current events into their instruction. There’s nothing at all wrong with that, unless of course only one side is taught.
We constantly hear about the importance of diversity in education. The trouble is that diversity of opinion is forbidden. I guarantee that teachers who try to present a balanced view of current events or worse a view that is politically incorrect will pay a huge price for their heresy. That’s why I maintain the anti-racist curriculum is propaganda masquerading as education.
Real education requires open discussion of all sides of issues. But how many teachers in K-12 or professors in colleges and universities are brave enough to buck the trend? If developing critical thinking is indeed an important goal, then what will take place in the fall is a travesty.
