At a Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 10, a public school teacher resigned over being labeled an oppressor because of her skin color, Breitbart News reported.
The teacher, Laura Morris, presented to the school board and addressed the Critical Race Theory training program and the politicized agenda pushed by the school board that is affecting children.
During her remarks, she recounted that in one of the equity courses she attended, she was told “that white, Christian, able-bodied females currently have the power in our schools, and that ‘this has to change.'”
“Clearly, you’ve made your point,” Morris continued. “You no longer value me or many other teachers you’ve employed in this county. So since my contract outlines the power that you have over my employment in Loudoun County Public Schools, I thought it necessary to resign in front of you,” Morris bluntly stated.
And then she went further: “School board, I quit,” the teacher asserted. “I quit your policies, I quit your training, and I quit being a cog in a machine that tells me to push highly politicized agendas to our most vulnerable constituents—the children.”
Morris also said that she would get a job elsewhere and encouraged parents to put their children in private schools to avoid falling victim to the Critical Race Theory agenda.
She also recounted that the county superintendent told her that she was not allowed to express a dissenting opinion last year. The superintendent went so far as to send her and her colleagues a form to fill out if they heard themselves speak out opposing the policies promoted by the board.
It should be noted that Critical Race Theory seeks to teach Americans that America is fundamentally racist and that every interaction must be evaluated based on race and not on the basis of the individual as such. In this way, they are promoting racism and targeting the white race, beginning with indoctrinating children.
Recently it was discovered that school board members are part of a Facebook group that shared a listing of parents who opposed the Critical Race Theory curriculum pushed by the board in question.
However, Loudoun County Public Schools interim superintendent Scott A. Ziegler denies that Critical Race Theory is being taught, claiming that what is being taught is “racial equity.”
The advancement of these teachings is not unique to Loudoun County, which is why this Tuesday, Aug. 10, the U.S. Senate passed through the budget reconciliation package the amendment introduced by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), which prohibits federal funds from being used to promote Critical Race Theory in schools.
Critical Race Theory has generated major debates in school districts across the country in recent months. As its progressive proponents have succeeded in introducing it into educational institutions, even as early as the first years of schooling, more conservative sectors have interpreted it as a tool of anti-American indoctrination, which under no circumstances should be financed with funds obtained from taxpayer contributions.
