Documents obtained by Heritage Action revealed that Gwinnett County Public Schools, the largest public school district in the state of Georgia, admitted plans to teach both critical race theorist and Marxist thought to students enrolled in an AP Language and AP Research Combination Class.
In an audit syllabus obtained by Heritage Action, the school district remarked that “Students will bridge the skills from AP Language to AP Research, analyzing the value of using different lenses in social criticism (Critical Race Theory, Feminist, Marxist, Psychoanalytic) to aid their analysis across issues, and the class will discuss how these perspectives apply to the different methods used by research fields.”
In a statement to The Federalist, Heritage Action’s Executive Director Jessica Anderson decried the district, saying “This is a clear admission of guilt from Gwinnett County Public Schools, the largest public school district in the state of Georgia. This week, Heritage Action staff uncovered an audit syllabus hosted on the GCPS website clearly stating teachers intended to teach AP Language students to analyze texts through the lens of critical race theory — soon after, the document was scrubbed from the site.”
“Heritage Action is now submitting an open records request for all public documents and emails relating to why the syllabus was removed from the website and all documents containing the phrase ‘Critical Race Theory,'” Anderson added.
Gwinnett County Public School’s apparent attempt to hide their left-wing agenda from public view comes after State Rep. Brad Thomas introduced a bill that would ban critical race theory in public schools.
Anderson explained her support for the bill, saying “This is exactly why State Rep. Brad Thomas’ bill is needed: HB 888 would require curriculum transparency, a commonsense tool that gives parents the ability to oversee their children’s education, and prevent state-sanctioned discrimination. The tenets of critical race theory, which divide students and Georgians on the basis of race, have no place in the classrooms of Georgia’s public schools.”
Tarece Johnson, the chairwoman of the Gwinnett County Public Schools Board of Education, has publicly endorsed CRT and openly displayed her hatred of white children. In one Facebook post, Johnson remarked that “there’s a killer cop sitting in every school where White children learn.”
This revelation is by no means the first time schools have attempted to conceal their vitriolic political agenda from parents and the community. The Federalist recently revealed that a private school in Dallas had lied to parents about teaching CRT. Other investigations from The Federalist found that school districts in both Riverside and Los Angeles blatantly lied about the presence of the anti-American theory in K-12 schools.
Gwinnett County Public Schools did not respond to a request for comment.
