My school district is filled with everything about CRT but they just call it something else.

"Dear Hastings Families, Faculty and Staff,

Both regionally and nationally, there have been growing discussions and media coverage regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within schools. Critical Race Theory (CRT), which is not synonymous with DEI, has become a significant focus and is emerging as a source of polarization across the country.

As a result, even in these summer months, we are receiving many questions about how Hastings is approaching the essential work of DEI and its relationship to CRT. To clarify, we are committed to a collaborative approach that is grounded in the State’s expectations, as outlined in the New York State Culturally Responsive Sustaining Education Framework...

Our Hastings-on-Hudson learning community has not shied away from courageous conversations about race and racism. As a school district, we recognize that being non-racist is not enough - we must work toward being anti-racist, and have an obligation to support our teachers, students, and community members. Last year, members of the Diversity Committee read the book White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo"
