Whitmer Silent on Radical Critical Race Theory

July 7, 2021

While the far-left continues trying to force the American education system to adopt a curriculum that is based on “Critical Race Theory,” Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s silence on the issue has left Michigan parents worried that this radical ideology will be taught in Michigan’s schools. 

A bill banning the teaching of this radical ideology was introduced in the Michigan Senate on May 20th. Bridge Magazine reports:

“The Michigan bill seeks to ban ‘anti-American and racist theories, reading guides, lesson plans, activities, guided discussions, and other resources that promote that the United States is a fundamentally racist nation, that the United States Constitution is a fundamentally racist document, and that certain races are fundamentally oppressive or oppressed.’ ”

Recently, the National Education Association, a national teachers union, backed up this radical change in the way we teach our students history. In a piece written in the New York Post, they describe the NEA’s support, stating:

“The union, which represents 3 million public school employees, approved funding for three separate items related to this issue: “increasing the implementation” of “critical race theory” in K-12 curricula, promoting critical race theory in local school districts, and attacking opponents of critical race theory, including parent organizations and conservative research centers.”

Congresswoman Haley Stevens (D-Rochester Hills) who sits on the education committee in Congress, recently dodged a question on whether or not she supports the implementation of the extreme “critical race theory” ideology.

“Thanks to the cowardly silence of Governor Whitmer and other Democrat leaders in Michigan, the radical left is being given a free pass to indoctrinate our students with hateful ideas only meant to divide our nation,” said Eric Ventimiglia, executive director for Michigan Rising Action. Ventimiglia continued, “Michiganders won’t stand for this extreme agenda in our schools, and Whitmer and her Democrat allies will be held accountable for their inaction.”
