Teaching about racism in schools is one thing, but teaching all subjects solely through the lens of racism is quite another (“How to Raise Kids Who Won’t Be Racist,” The New York Times, Jul. 15). There will always be some parents who want to totally ban racism from the curriculum, but I maintain that the overwhelming majority have no objection as long as it doesn’t become an obsession.
Unfortunately, that is not the case today. Every single subject is affected by the demand to make racism the paramount factor. That is going to shortchange students in this country. Students abroad don’t have to deal with the same pressure about racism.
