A recent training program at Tulsa Public Schools (TPS) provided materials advising teachers to incorporate “social justice” into all courses, including subjects such as physical education and math.
“When we teach, we either reinforce the oppressive status quo, or we work with students to dismantle it,” the training-program material stated.
As an example, the training program suggested that students taking a science class should examine “the effects of capitalism on the environment and biological systems.”
In P.E. classes, instructors were advised to “discuss and challenge gender norms in team sports and athletics” and “discuss inequality and discrimination in athletics.”
In an “English for Speakers of Other Languages” course, teachers were told to “examine the oppressive nature behind enforcing ‘Standard English.’”
