Why do teachers schools teach critical race theory?

Because our schools are Woke, baby! 

At the risk of being slapped silly by Will Smith, Blaska will continue his assault on Woke pedagogy and their deniers. We’re trying to prevent news reporters like Elizabeth Beyer of the Wisconsin State Journal from becoming a modern-day Walter Duranty. Citing no sources, Ms. Beyer writes 02-06-22:

“Critical Race Theory, an academic framework that focuses on racism embedded in the nation’s laws and institutions … isn’t taught in any of Wisconsin’s K-12 schools.”

Book cover: "Woke baby"It is more accurate to say that CRT is being taught, to one degree or another, in every Wisconsin public school rather than none at all. Not in every classroom by every teacher, perhaps, but the overall direction of Wisconsin public schools is to guilt-trip white kids for their implicit racism, to accord victim status to kids with darker complexions, and to blame society and history for poor academic performance and bad behavior.

It is no co-inky-dink that teachers elected a state superintendent of Public Instruction more woke than the Starbucks taste tester. Or that DPI is pumping out critical race theory in an Educational Equity Series that promises “to increase capacity for racial equity leadership among our Wisconsin educators.”

CRT philosophy is taught at the schools of education, especially on the University of Wisconsin’s Madison campus, where the chancellor banished a 42-ton glacial rock after a clatch of social justice warriors accused it of racism.

➜ “Yes, teacher prep programs are that Woke.”

A researcher studying “The politicization of university schools of education” focused on UW-Madison, which the author says “may be the most influential public school of education in the country.” Taught in two courses at Madison’s teachers school is a tract titled “Education policy as an act of white supremacy.”

No one has done more to push CRT into the classroom than UW-Madison’s Gloria Ladson-Billings, co-author of Critical Race Theory in Education. GLB calls existing school curricula a “culturally specific artifact designed to maintain a white supremacist master script.” You can tell a book by its outline:

Book cover: Foundations of Critical Race Theory in EducationPart One: Critical Race Theory in Education

1. Just what is critical race theory and what’s it doing in a nice field like education? — Gloria Ladson-Billings

2. Who’s afraid of critical race theory? — Derrick A. Bell

3. Education policy as an act of white supremacy: Whiteness, critical race theory and education reform— David Gillborn

Ladson-Billings is no outlier. She is the associate vice chancellor of academic affairs at the University of Wisconsin, and she formerly served as the chair of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. She is currently the president of the National Academy of Education and, for 2005-2006, was president of the American Educational Research Association. Yeah, DPI featured GLB in its on-line seminar for 02-24-22.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: If CRT isn’t taught in our K-12 schools, why are teachers schools teaching it?

    You may be ignoring Race to the Bottom by Luke Rosiac, but your audience is not. See Chapter 11, especially.

    CRT has been EXPOSED. It won’t go quietly but it is doomed now that it has escaped from the universities.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The only way to prove definitively that CRT (lite or full-strength) is being taught in WI schools is to elect school boards that mandate video-audio recording equipment in every public school classroom in every school in the state. And make sure that the recordings are made readily available to every taxpayer (especially parents). A sizeable chunk of workers perform their daily tasks under the watchful eyes of recording devices, why not teachers? Of course, progressives would keep denying that CRT is being taught and the media would back them up, but at least parents and voters would know the truth.

    So somehow this CRT university class is now being taught in kindergarten. And you all thought kids today are dumb.

        Why are teachers schools teaching CRT? Because in the course of their career they might be teaching in more than grammar school. All this CRT blab falls right in with trucker convoys, don’t say gay and defining a woman. It keeps the right-wing thinking they are really doing something.

          Richard, A reminder of yer past verbalization’s: “My name is Raymond J. Johnson Jr. Now you can call me Ray, or you can call me J, or you can call me Johnny, or you can call me Sonny; now you can call me Ray J, or you can call me RJ, or you can call me RJJ, “but you doesn’t hasta call me Johnson!”
