Stop CRT news
- Berea City School District gets a dose of CRT from JEDI, and we aren’t talking about Star Wars. JEDI stands for Justice – Equity – Diversity – and Inclusion. The school district decided to partner with the Diversity Center of Northeast OH to bring this program to students. They claim the program doesn’t aim to teach CRT, but most of the resources the JEDI program references fall squarely in the camp of those who promote CRT. A recent search of the term “racist” on the school district’s website yielded links to media with titles like “How to not (accidentally) raise a racist” and “Ten tips for teaching and talking to kids about race.” We couldn’t view these pages because they are no longer available, but they definitely were there recently. A similar look around the Diversity Center of NE OH website yielded media results like “Hagerman, Margaret A. (2020) White Kids: Growing Up with Privilege in a Racially Divided America.” and “New York Times: Introducing: Nice White Parents.” So, forgive us Berea School District, but we don’t believe the claim that you aren’t teaching CRT.
- DeWine’s office responded to letters from some of our group members raising concerns with CRT. They replied “The Governor opposes critical race theory because it divides, rather than unites, Americans. We should never shy away from teaching the good and bad of American history, but we should help our children appreciate what unites us rather than what divides us.” (While this is not the powerful statement against CRT that we had hoped for, at least he appears to be on the right side of the issue).
- NEA teacher’s union drops suit against RI mother who filed records’ requests about CRT in her daughter’s school. This supports the right of parents to access school curriculum under state and federal law.
Private Schools See Enrollment Influx as Parents Change Schools due to Masks and Critical Race Theory.
WESTLAKE, Ohio — ‘Unprecedented’ and ‘school-year’ are quite often used in the same sentence right now, but Courtney Novak says she wanted some consistency for her kids this year. “Continuity was super important to us as well as being in an environment where they can thrive,” she said.Novak’s two children are newly enrolled at St. Paul Westlake and said the school’s flexible mask policy is what prompted the change.

Debunking CRT:Are You Angry Yet?…
There is a lot to be upset about these days: like mask and vaccine mandates trampling personal freedoms, the humiliation of our country on the world stage due to the debacle in Afghanistan, and of course, the division of racial politics and CRT being pushed in our workplaces and classrooms. It is enough to make a person want to turn off the news and tune out completely. Some people have, but that doesn’t solve the problem. Others will stew on the constant stream of bad news until they become stressed and agitated with no outlet for their frustration but fretful hand-wringing.
However, this time of challenge is an opportunity. It is an invitation to get into the conversation about local, state, and national policies. Taking action on behalf of the policies that are important to us is the antidote for such frustration. Once you move along this path of action, you will meet others that are in a similar place, who have similar values and concerns, and you will not feel so alone. You may even feel encouraged as you might actually be able to affect change.
Soon, you will realize that your frustration is fading, and a new sense of calm has replaced it. This is because you have taken that energy of frustration and given it purpose. By taking some action, any action, you are now headed towards a goal, and that is, by far, preferable to stewing on bad news. Your soul, and probably your blood pressure, will thank you. It is important to note that things didn’t have to get this bad.
We didn’t have to relinquish our positions on school boards to the tender mercies of far left activists that seem to hold a majority in so many communities. We did that by choice. For years, we ignored the left’s takeover of our schools and corporations. We didn’t oppose CRT when it cropped up. We waited until news reports surfaced that teachers were separating kids by race in classrooms. We waited until the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture put up an exhibit declaring things like hard work and objectivity are “signs of whiteness.” It’s not all our fault though.
Our national media, politicians, and other groups/people of influence have stifled the motivation of people like us to speak out by using the one word that everyone fears – racist. No one wants to be called a racist and society rightly shuns racists, so there is a lot at stake when a person speaks out against things like CRT. But there is some good news. The left has overplayed their hand. America has seen what CRT is and they don’t like it. The term “racist” is losing steam. That is the natural course of things when the media labels everything it doesn’t approve of as racist, so there’s no need to be afraid of that anymore. The backlash to all of this is here, and it is strong. Ease your frustration by taking some action.
