Two Republican congressmen have reportedly sent US Education Secretary Miguel Cardona a letter urging the Biden administration to reconsider spending taxpayer money on Critical Race Theory lessons for the nation’s students.
A new rule proposed by the US Education Department says financial grants could encourage schools to “incorporate teaching and learning practices that reflect the diversity, identities, histories, contributions, and experiences of all students.”
The plan posted on the National Archive’s Federal Register website cites as examples the New York Times Magazine’s controversial “1619 Project” and the work of Ibram X. Kendi, author of the best-selling book “How to Be an Antiracist.”
In his book, Kendi writes “the only remedy to racist discrimination is antiracist discrimination. The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination.”
Reps. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) and Jeff Duncan (R-SC) have sent a letter to Cardona urging the Team Biden to rethink the effort, according to Fox News.
