Georgia governor urges Board of Education to not teach ‘DANGEROUS ideology’ of critical race theory
In a Thursday letter, Kemp told members of the Georgia State Board of Education to take “immediate steps to ensure that critical race theory and its dangerous ideology do not take root in our state standards and curriculum.”
Kemp said he does not want taxpayers to be funding a “blatantly partisan agenda” being promoted to children, which he claims the Biden administration is pushing.

Critical race theory is a concept being pushed by many liberal activists that examines how racial bias influences US policy and legal institutions. Conservatives have argued that activists pushing for critical race theory are politically motivated.
Kemp’s aides did not specify whether the concept was being taught in any Georgia schools, but said the governor’s letter is meant to preempt this from ever occurring.
Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr earlier this week joined over a dozen other attorneys general this week to urge the Biden administration not to support proposals suggesting that critical race theory and the controversial 1619 Project be taught in schools.
“I believe in history by addition, not history by revision,” Carr said in a statement.Also on rt.com Wait, American universities are ‘right-wing institutions’? Does Teen Vogue publish facts or fairy tales?
