Explainer: Stop Racial Indoctrination in Schools

 

Some schools in South Africa are pressuring students into accepting a worldview called Critical Race Theory (CRT). 

According to CRT the most important thing about you is your race, and that your prospects in life are determined by the colour of your skin. In short, CRT teaches that you’re either bad if you’re white or weak if you’re not white. If South Africans don’t stand together to stop this, this indoctrination will produce children who are fragile and unable to think for themselves, making them ill-equipped to become productive members of society.

Some schools in South Africa are pressuring students into accepting a worldview called Critical Race Theory (CRT).

According to CRT the most important thing about you is your race, and that your prospects in life are determined by the colour of your skin. It teaches that white people are racists and that black people can only succeed if white people let them. In short, CRT teaches that you’re either bad if you’re white or weak if you’re not white.

Many schools have made CRT part of official school policy, and like in the US, hire so-called ‘experts’ to ensure that CRT ideas dominate what should be open learning environments.

This is not surprising - most universities in South Africa train teachers to accept a theory of education called Critical Pedagogy. This theory says that the role of a teacher is first and foremost to bring about radical social change. Teachers are being trained to become activists and to use schools as vehicles to spread harmful ideas like CRT.

This is very different from the commonsense idea that the role of a teacher is not only to impart knowledge, but to equip students to use reason and evidence to think for themselves.

However, CRT activists consider reason and evidence as tools used to build up white people, while breaking down everyone else. Therefore, if a student tries to question the ideas of CRT they are accused of racism; “Accept CRT, or else…”

Not only is it immoral for a school to force a particular set of values on children behind their parents’ backs, but this particular set of values divides students by race and teaches them that being offended is a mark of virtue.

If South Africans don’t stand together to stop this, this indoctrination will produce children who are fragile and unable to think for themselves, making them ill-equipped to become productive members of society.
