Schools across the UK are facing a takeover by organizations promoting controversial “anti-racism” theories, according to a recent report. Here’s the full story.
The report, conducted by the campaign group Don’t Divide Us, revealed that some classrooms are subjecting students to tests assessing their “unconscious bias.”
These surveys aim to gauge students’ understanding of concepts like “white privilege” and their response to scenarios such as a teacher mispronouncing the name of a Middle Eastern student.
This Is to Make Schools More Inclusive
Additionally, external provider Flair offers advice to school staff on making their institutions more inclusive.
“Restorative Justice Approach”
This guidance includes implementing a “restorative justice approach” for individuals involved in offensive jokes or “micro-aggressions.”
Several Organizations are Teaching in Schools
Flair is among many third-party organizations that provide staff training or lesson content based on contentious “critical race theory.”
The Racist Theory
This theory teaches concepts like white privilege and asserts that Britain is structurally racist.
Promoting Critical Race Theory
Don’t Divide Us examined 49 organizations operating in English schools and found that all but one of them promoted critical race theory as fact.
This Is Against the Law
This discovery suggests that schools may be violating the Education Act, which prohibits the promotion of partisan political views and requires the presentation of opposing perspectives to maintain a balanced education.
A Concerning Trend
Alka Sehgal Cuthbert, the author of the report, expressed concerns about the broader implications of this trend.
She emphasized that the professional development of teachers is increasingly seen through a racial lens rather than an educational one.
The Meaning of Success Is Being Changed
Furthermore, the definition of students’ success is being redefined in terms of their alignment with “anti-racist” ideologies.
Judged By Different Standards
White students are judged on their level of allyship, while non-white students are expected to identify and report microaggressions.
This Has Negative Effects on Education
Cuthbert argued that these beliefs, rooted in theories of “critical social justice,” have detrimental effects on education.
Rather than fostering intellectual curiosity, they encourage intellectual conformity.
There Are Concerns About the Curriculum
Earlier this year, Rishi Sunak ordered an inquiry into sex education amid concerns about inappropriate material being taught and a lack of parental oversight.
Parents Should Understand the Curriculum
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “Parents should withdraw their children from any school peddling this Lefty filth.”
Another user added, “Everything’s falling apart. The only question is how bad things will get.”
