McMinn County Schools adopted EL "Expeditionary Learning" curriculum for their K-8 English courses. This curriculum explicitly states on its website that it is dedicated to "equity" and anti-racism, which means Critical Race Theory. They even quote Ibram X. Kendi, the most prominent CRT advocate of our time. The School Board went against board policy to choose it and reprimands any teacher who doesn't teach it with "fidelity." Many are quitting and looking for other options. Parents beware!!! The state of Tennessee has banned teaching CRT in schools, yet has this curriculum on the approved list.
