    A Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) educator and administrator in the largest school district in Indiana addressed parents in a video in which he asserted when school officials say they are not teaching Critical Race Theory (CRT), “we’re lying.” As an admin for the largest school district in Indiana, heres what we mean when we tell you that we arent "teaching" Critical Race Theory: pic.twitter.com/f6RLghcw2R — Tony Kinnett (@TheTonus) November 4, 2021 In the video posted Thursday, Tony Kinnett introduced himself as “the science coach and admin in the largest public school district in Indiana.” This means, “I’m in dozens of classrooms a week,” he said. “So, I see exactly what we’re teaching our students.” “When we tell you that schools aren’t teaching Critical Race Theory that it’s nowhere in our standards, that’s misdirection,” Kinnett declared, addressing the fact that many parents who have voiced concerns about the teaching of the tenets of CRT in their schools have been told the Marxist-based philosophy is not to be found in K-12 classrooms. “We don’t have the quotes and theories as state...
    Several participants of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol have been taking part in one attorney’s re-education program, which involves reading books or watching movies about topics like slavery and the Holocaust, as they face sentencing. Heather Shaner, one of the many D.C. attorneys assigned to represent Capitol riot defendants who can’t afford their own, spoke to HuffPost in late June about the remedial social studies program she is offering to clients. Shaner said she normally sends clients books to read before their trial, but added that she wanted to take a more intensive approach with Capitol riot defendants. “They’re a captured audience, and it’s life-changing for a lot of them,” she said. “Reading books and then watching these shows is like a revelation. I think that education is a very powerful tool … So I gave them book lists and shows that they should watch.” This week, a 49-year-old woman from southern Indiana will be the first defendant sentenced in connection with the Jan. 6 Capitol attack. She’s also the first “graduate” of a pop-up remedial history...
    A Nevada advocacy group is pushing for teachers to wear body cameras in the classroom to make sure they aren't teaching critical race theory in schools and indoctrinating students.  The proposal was forward by the Nevada Family Alliance - a group that describes itself as a 'watchdog organization - at a Washoe County school board meeting this week.  It is response to a plan from the school district, which includes the cities of Reno and Sparks, to expand the K-5 curriculum to include more teaching about equity, diversity and racism.    The Nevada Family Alliance put forward its suggestion for teachers to wear body cameras following frustration from parents about the 'lack of transparency by teachers promoting a social justice narrative'.  The Nevada Family Alliance - a group that describes itself as a 'watchdog organization - has suggested at a board meeting this week that Washoe County teachers wear body cameras to make sure they aren't teaching critical race theory in schools. A man is picturing protesting against CRT outside the board meeting 'Every day we are told of another incident where a teacher...
    Lilit Vanetsyan, a teacher in Fairfax County, Virginia, confronted school board officials in neighboring Loudoun County on Tuesday to push back against what she described as radical lesson plans that will teach kids to "root for socialism by the time they get to middle school." "Parents, the longer that you wait and don't have your child's schools accountable, gives these guys more time to dictate what's best for your child's physical, mental, and emotional health," she said, pointing to the board as she spoke from the podium at Tuesday's school board meeting. Vanetsyan told "Fox News Primetime" Thursday that she felt compelled to speak out because teachers "have been silent for so long and this is why we are where we are." "Parents are finally noticing for themselves what the schools are actually teaching their children and they are not happy with it," she told host Tammy Bruce.  "The reaction so far has been outstanding. I have to tell you, I’m getting an outpouring of messages from teachers in the district. Teachers in the state and across the country who are very thankful and are finding their voice as well to speak forward." Vanetsyan joins...
    A mother in New York is going viral after she branded school board members 'thieves' and 'liars' for exposing children to critical race theory.   Tatiana Ibrahim, a mother of a child in the system, spoke up in front of the Carmel Central School District school board last Thursday after officials asked for feedback on a failed budget vote.    In an 11-minute speech, Ibrahim accused board members of indoctrinating students with left-wing ideologies and teaching them that they are inherently racist, that police officers are killers and that disagreeing with LGBT values makes them homophobic.   'I think that the Board of Education and those sitting on the panel are thieves,' Ibrahim said.

    The Biden administration plans to roll out school reopening guidelines this week, but the nation's schools may have already met the White House's stated goal to "safely reopen" a majority of K-8 schools.  Sixty-four percent of elementary and middle school students are already seeing some in-person instruction, according to the most current data from Burbio's School Opening Tracker. The tracker, which aggregates school and community calendars across the country, gathers data from 1,200 school districts, including the 200 largest, in all 50 states. It measures traditional in-person instruction and hybrid in-person and virtual learning, as well as schools using only virtual learning, which is the way 36% of students are being taught.   President Biden's current goal is to see "a majority of K-8 schools safely open in 100 days." But the White House has not offered any criteria for what it means to be open — whether that means using a hybrid model or full-time learning. The fact that the White House has said that part of the impetus for returning younger children to school is to allow parents to...
    A Democratic lawmaker in Illinois is calling for the abolishment of history classes in the state because he claims that the current program “leads to white privilege and a racist society.” “Leaders in education, politics and other areas gathered in suburban Evanston Sunday to ask that the Illinois State Board of Education change the history curriculum at schools statewide, and temporarily halt instruction until an alternative is decided upon,” NBC Chicago reported. “At a news conference, State Rep. LaShawn K. Ford said current history teachings lead to a racist society and overlook the contributions of women and minorities.” NBC Chicago noted that Ford’s office passed out a news release prior to the event titled, “Rep. Ford Today in Evanston to Call for the Abolishment of History Classes in Illinois Schools.” “Concerned that current school history teaching leads to white privilege and a racist society, state Rep. La Shawn K. Ford, D-Chicago, will join local leaders today at noon at the Robert Crown Center in Evanston to call on the state to stop its current history teaching practices until appropriate alternatives are developed,”...
