Critical Race Theory in Ohio Schools: Frequently Asked Questions

Is Critical Race Theory in Ohio Schools?
Training for revolution: Radical ideologies team up in too many schools
School boards throughout Ohio have heard from numerous parents who have objections to lessons and programs based on “critical race theory.” We have been very involved in these discussions and some have asked for details about our position.
Q. What is “critical race theory”?
A. Taught first on college campuses and in law schools, critical race theory views the whole of history and our society’s institutions through the lens of race, and proposes that America was founded on and is still infused with “white privilege” and “white supremacy.” Our culture is “systemically racist,” and needs to be reconstructed from the ground up. It becomes readily apparent that this position has dire implications. What does an American reconstruction look like? And is anything even close to this needed?
People are asked to view themselves and others as either “oppressors” or those who are “oppressed” (a basic tenet of Marxism) and to then embrace prejudiced views of other people based on skin color. The result is a great divide, with victimization on one hand and defensiveness on the other due to collective guilt and suspicion.
Q. How is this theory being applied in K through 12 classrooms today?
A. Many schools and education “experts” are quick to claim that critical race theory is NOT being taught in schools. So what’s all the fuss? As many parents will attest, CRT may or may not be named as such, but is readily visible as applied to Ohio school mission statements, lesson plans, literature selections, special observances, school club activities, history studies, school policies and more.
