I am a teacher in this school district. Our district has a large percentage of Native American students. Our annual district training was promoted as strategies to help us better reach these minority students. Instead, we were lectured for hours on Critical Race Theory. The presenter continuously used the word “whiteness” as a racial slur, gave us his own version of Western history, criticized Christianity, and condemned the Constitution as a document intended to perpetuate slavery. This indoctrination is planned to continue throughout the year. Teachers do not have a choice whether to attend. Now it has been communicated that our implementation of these concepts will be a heavy part of our teacher evaluations.
