North Texas School District Prohibits Critical Race Theory
On August 22, 2022, the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District voted to prohibit the teaching of critical race theory. In addition, the North Dallas-Fort Worth school district vowed to not “promote, require, or encourage the usage of pronouns not aligned with a student’s actual sex”, according to a report by Breccan Thies of Breitbart News.
This measure was passed on a 4-3 vote. On top of that, this vote established a rigorous process for reviewing library books and mandates students to use restrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their real sexes. The library materials have to be published online and available for parents to review.
After the passage of this measure, a robust oversight process is now in place for choosing and approving new books.
This new Grapevine-Colleyville ISD policy also prohibits the teaching of culturally leftist topics such as gender identity and sexual orientation until the fifth grade, males from participating in girls’ sports, and anti-white historical revisionism such as the “1619 Project.”
This is a good start for the DFW area. It has recently become more purple due to changing demographics and the shifting views of many upper-middle class suburbanites that reside in this area. However, there are still genuine pockets of resistance operating in this area.
While public schools have all sorts of problems, the most practical step any serious right-wing movement can do to limit their pernicious influence on the youth is to ban leftist teaching material and purge the schools of all forms of leftist influence. Bad actors, whether they’re politicians or low-level government workers, must be punished for their misbehavior.
The America First Right must set the tone of the debate and set strong standards for what constitutes acceptable behavior. The days of persuading people about the righteousness of right-wing causes are over.
It’s time to put the squeeze on the cultural Left. The only way we can move towards a free-market in education is by vastly diminishing the Left’s political and cultural power.
