U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn is urging the Biden administration to stop their efforts to force public schools to teach critical race theory and the so-called 1619 Project.
Grants to public schools should not be based on whether the radical theories are taught to students in history and civics classes, Lamborn and 24 House Republicans said in a letter to Education Secretary Miguel Cardona.
“A more wrong-headed, unAmerican proposal would be difficult to imagine. Yet, the country must recognize that very soon President Biden’s embrace of the poisonous and anti-American ideology of critical race theory threatens to become official policy of the United States government, directed toward our most impressionable citizens — primary and secondary school students across the country,” the lawmakers said in the letter.
Critical Race Theory is heavily criticized for teaching youngsters to identify and judge people based solely on their race, while the 1619 Project teaches all American history through the lens of slavery.
U.S. Rep. Dan Bishop, North Carolina Republican, told the Daily Caller:
“Critical Race Theory is nothing more than cultural Marxism. It masquerades as history, but is designed to mislead and divide. For the sake of our children’s future, we must fight this now.”
