THAT’S BECAUSE IT’S STUPID AND RACIST: Critical race theory not very popular in new educator survey. “Teaching critical race theory (CRT) doesn’t seem to be very popular among non-union educators, according to a new survey.”
THE PUBLIC DOESN’T WANT WHAT THE POLITICAL CLASS IS SELLING. THE POLITICAL CLASS DOESN’T WANT TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT THE PUBLIC WANTS. Polls: No to teaching CRT, yes to traditional values classes.
Despite efforts by liberal media outlets to portray parental opposition to critical race theory and other restyled history lessons as a limited phenomenon, new polling shows that it is a national movement.
In two separate Rasmussen Reports surveys, for example, overwhelming majorities back the teaching of traditional Western “values” and fear that CRT will make race relations worse.
The surveys fly in the face of reporting that the outcry against the race-based look at history is happening only in mostly conservative pockets of the nation. Washington-based journalists have made that claim even though the biggest fights over CRT have happened in nearby wealthy counties won by President Joe Biden and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton.
In its latest survey, Rasmussen today said that 78% support the teaching of traditional Western civilization values. . . .
Notably, said Rasmussen, those results are in line with past surveys on the issue even though Democrats in Washington have been pushing for radical liberal changes since Biden won.
That survey followed another in which voters by a margin of 43%-24% fear teaching CRT will worsen race relations.
What’s more, the teaching of Western values is supported by most groups, including blacks and Democrats.
We don’t have political polarization. We have education polarization, with the “woke” gentry class trying to push their values on everyone else.
