DAYLIGHT DISINFECTANT | “CRITICAL RACE THEORY” ROLLED OUT TO PORTLAND PUBLIC SCHOOLS:










“CRITICAL RACE THEORY” ROLLED OUT TO PORTLAND PUBLIC SCHOOLS



“I hadn’t the slightest clue what my privilege of being a white man had brought me… I learned to see my life through a racial lens.” That’s what one Portland student took away from a new controversial course in “Critical Race Theory.”




Dateline Wednesday March 19, 2014 – Portland Oregon: Portland Public Schoolsteachers participated in a training session where a controversial new curriculum including “Critical Race Theory,” is explained. The curriculum is currently implemented in three charter schools at the K-5, middle school and high school level. The curriculum is expected to be rolled out to all schools in the Portland Public School System: thus the training.
According to Wikipedia, Critical Race Theory or CRT:
“CRT recognizes that racism is engrained in the fabric and system of the American society. The individual racist need not exist to note that institutional racism is pervasive in the dominant culture. This is the analytical lens that CRT uses in examining existing power structures. CRT identifies that these power structures are based on white privilege and white supremacy, which perpetuates the marginalization of people of color.[3]“
