Teachers in government schools around the nation – allegedly including 10 in Jacksonville — are vowing to teach their students – by example – to flout the law.
The teachers have pledged online do disobey state laws prohibiting the teaching of Critical Race Theory – a divisive, anti-American belief that is being pushed vigorously by the Far Left.
According to the Daily Wire, the Zinn Education Project, named after the anti-American historian Howard Zinn, has collected signatures from more than 4,200 teachers who “Pledge to Teach the Truth: Despite New State Bills Against It.”
Names published on the site of people said they were teachers from Jacksonville are:
Donnella Quartrman, Gary Techentien, Jo Carlisle, Kevin Smith, Kristen Kimball, Lance Duff, Lisa Montgomery, Robert Wilkison, Tim Gilmore, Warren Buck
We asked the local school system for verification of the names and have not yet received an answer.
Update: The school system has advised us they confirm only two of these names match those of current teachers: Techentien and Duff.
Responsible politicians in a number of states have acted to protect students by enacting laws banning the use of CRT in schools. Florida’s Board of Education has established a policy that does the same.
CRT seeks to indoctrinate young boys and girls into believing that people of one race are evil and those of other races are victims, and oppressed – despite the protections all are afforded under the U.S. Constitution.
This is Democrat Party political propaganda, hateful and untrue.
It has no place in schools.
The Duval County school system claims that it does not use CRT.
Parents and taxpayers should insist upon knowing why a teacher would rather instill his own beliefs and opinions into lessons that should be based on facts.
As representatives of those parents and teachers, the School Board should be demanding an answer from teachers who have pledged to do that rather than obey the law.
