Congressman Byron Donalds slammed the idea of teaching Critical Race Theory in schools. WINK News reports:
One school district says a critical race theory is not a part of their curriculum, and a Southwest Florida congressman said he’ll make sure it stays that way.
Critical race theory is an academic concept that seeks to examine U.S. law as it intersects with issues of race.
Parents in Collier County joined Rep. Byron Donalds, who represents Collier County in Congress, as he spoke Tuesday about critical race theory at Collier County Public Schools. The State of Florida banned the teaching of critical race theory in schools this year.
While it’s banned and the Collier school district said it doesn’t teach it, Donalds said the point of Tuesday’s press conference was to make sure the school district knows it’s being watched by the community.
“And unfortunately, what we’ve seen is critical race theory has crept into too many institutions in our country,” Donalds said.
Donalds said he was not accusing the school district of teaching it.
“What I’m here to do is to make sure that CCPS understands that there are many constituents that are going to be paying attention to what goes on, not only in the administrative building but also in the classrooms in our district,” Donalds said.
