South Carolina’s newly elected Lieutenant Governor is fighting back against the woke mob’s attempted takeover of education in America.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
North Carolina’s newly elected Republican lieutenant governor is leading the fight against a statewide social studies curriculum that would weave critical race theory into history lessons beginning in kindergarten.
Mark Robinson, the first African American to hold his position, has been an outspoken critic of the new curriculum standards, which he says were created because of the board of education’s political agenda rather than to educate students. The curriculum would require second graders to learn “how various indigenous, religious, gender, and racial groups advocate for freedom and equality,” while fourth graders would learn how “revolution, reform, and resistance” shaped North Carolina.
“I don’t think that these things that we have included have been for the benefit of the students,” Robinson said during a school board meeting in late January. “There’s no reason why we should be trying to teach second graders about the complex issues of race. Those children have enough on their plate learning how to read, and write, and do mathematics.”
Robinson is working to build an opposition to the curriculum, which he characterizes as divisive and anti-American. In a petition—that by Wednesday afternoon had nearly 30,000 signatures—he argued that the courses are designed to “indoctrinate our students against our great country.”
Critics have said that despite changes the tone still suggests that the U.S. is systemically racist.
