Our Message

Parents in the South Bay have been asking: Is my school district implementing Critical Race Theory (CRT) across the curriculum?  The answer is YES, they are.  The school boards actively deny this is happening, at times scoffing at parent concerns.  They most likely expect that soon the community will grow tired of the fight and revert back to not paying attention.

We ask that everyone who cares about future generations become educated on this movement and push back before our K-12 programs are infiltrated with a political agenda that does not further educational excellence.

How are schools accomplishing these changes so quickly?

  • In Manhattan Beach it is the EDSJI – Equity, Diversity Social Justice Initiative. 
  • In Redondo Beach it is the REC – Race and Equity Committee. 
  • In Hermosa Beach it was the Equity Task Force.  To their credit, they met publicly.  However, HB has since set up another committee which meets behind closed doors. 

This is why all committee meetings need to be publicly aired and recorded to ensure that groups which influence the school boards are not operating in secret.

Promoting Social Justice is one of the ways in which the doctrine of Critical Race Theory is successfully implemented within a school district.  The children are taught to be angry and fight back against the perceived injustices in our country.   This philosophy is introduced to the youngest of children in our districts. 

Every school board has uttered the words “We do not teach Critical Race Theory”.  It is important to note that there is not a class called “Critical Race Theory 101”.  Rather, it is a philosophy that is woven across the curriculum.

Listen to the Manhattan Beach Superintendent and MB teachers who are on the EDSJI committee explain how Social Justice is woven throughout the curriculum.

What can you do as concerned community members?

  •  Stay informed and when school board members and school administration deny this is happening be prepared with your information so you can push back against the prevailing narrative of denial.
  • Demand that all committees are held publicly and recorded so the community may watch what is being said about our schools.
  • Learn as much as you can about Critical Race Theory so you understand the ways in which schools weave it across the curriculum.  One obvious addition – pushing students to become Social Activists. One of the best articles which discusses Critical Race Theory may be found here. See the Newsletter section for further information.
  • Get involved!  Speak up at meetings and make your voice heard.  Insist that these committees are concluded to end their influence on the curriculum.
  • Tell everyone you know to open their eyes and protect the future of education. Many people still avoid this discussion, but their children’s mental health is at stake when children are shamed based upon the color of their skin.

RB:  The school board is now talking about creating a Social Justice Committee in order to weave Social Justice throughout the curriculum.  Read about the California proposed math framework (Putting The Pieces of the Puzzle Together newsletter) in which math is no longer just math, it is about Social Justice.  In the world of Social Justice, Excellence in Education takes a back seat as ideology takes center stage in the classroom.  
 
HB:  the PTO is discussing the cancellation of the cherished Father Daughter dance. Fathers are an important part of a girl’s life and should be celebrated. All fathers should speak out against this – it is part of the overall push against the family unit.
