Pirate Podcast Exposes Critical Race Theory in Pinellas County Schools

►►Critical Race Theory is IN Pinellas County Schools◄◄Listen to this episode from Pirate Podcast on Spotify. Documentation, discovered by researchers, have uncovered materials that indicate that Critical Race Theory (CRT), masquerading as Culturally Relevant Teaching (CRT) is has not only arrived already into local classrooms, but is being promoted and encouraged throughout Pinellas County Schools.  On June 8th, Pinellas County School Board quietly approved through their consent agenda a CRT Czar to champion equity initiatives for implementation of their CRT curriculum.  It will be trained during a special teacher training workshop this summer, and then incentivised during the 2021/2022 school year with published CRT objectives and invecentives for staff and administration.  We're in possession of the materials, and in the process of relaying them to the State of Florida as the materials and implementation are seemingly at odds with Florida’s state Board of Education ban of “critical race theory” from public school classrooms Thursday, adopting new rules it said would shield schoolchildren from curricula that could “distort historical events.” The new rules say classroom instruction “must be factual and objective, and may not suppress or distort significant historical events.” It goes on to mention the Holocaust, slavery and the Civil War, as well as the civil rights movement and the contributions of Blacks, Hispanics and women to the country. But it also makes specific mention of “theories that distort historical events” that are inconsistent with board policy, including any teaching that denies the Holocaust or espouses critical race theory, which the new rules say asserts “that racism is not merely the product of prejudice, but that racism is embedded in American society and its legal systems in order to uphold the supremacy of white persons.” The new rules also forbids use of the 1619 Project, a classroom program spawned by a New York Times project that focuses on teaching about slavery and African American history. The project’s name refers to the year popularly believed to be when slaves were first brought to colonial America. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/piratepodcast/message
