The Critical Race Theory Controversy

Source: Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G Hornberger

“Conservatives and progressives are at it again. They are attacking each other big time over whether Critical Race Theory should be taught in secondary schools and colleges and universities. The fundraising appeals are flying, as each side exhorts people to send in their donations to support whichever side is sending out the fundraising appeal. Yawn! The controversy is no different in principle from one that entails, say, whether students should wear uniforms in public schools. Or whether colleges and universities should be permitted to praise Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson in courses about the Civil War. Why do I find all this conservative-progressive back-and-forth boring and tedious? Because it’s just an endless exercise in trying to make statism work.” (07/15/21)
