Teaching more black history is fine — turning schools into ‘everything is racist’ is not
Post Editorial Board
That the city Department of Education is developing an improved black history curriculum shouldn’t be the least controversial. But Chancellor Meisha Ross Porter’s claim that it’s all about “social justice” should sound alarms.
Worse, the people behind the project say the curriculum will introduce kids to the “role of race in power relationships and the impact of systemic and institutional racism.” The jargon certainly sounds like a wave, if not a kiss, at critical race theory — with all its obsessions with explaining everything as racism at work.
