Alaska's Fairbanks North Star Borough School District is assimilating inappropriate theory (CRT) into their teaching philosophy by insinuating that Systemic Racism exists in our government. Ignoring that the distribution of resources goes predominately to non-whites and additional protections under the rule of law favor non-whites.
Equity is fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people, while at the same time striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups. In order to improve equity, we must increase justice and fairness within the procedures and processes of institutions or systems, as well as in their distribution of resources. Tackling equity issues requires an understanding of the root causes of outcome disparities within our society.
