Liberals are currently shamelessly trying to use Critical Race Theory (CRT) to indoctrinate our children in schools.
Daily Mail explained what Critical Race Theory is, saying that it “teaches that racism is present in all aspects of American life and that people need to be made aware of it to understand the everyday difficulties faced by black people and other minorities because of their skin color.”
To fight this, the great state of Iowa passed House File 802 back in June. This law bans subjects related to racism or sexism training and diversity and inclusion efforts at governmental agencies and entities, including school districts in the state. Unfortunately, it now seems that some “woke” teachers are getting around this law to teach CRT anyway.
Petra Lange, who teaches English at West Des Moines’ Valley High School, boasted on a Zoom call this week about what she sees as a “clever workaround” to the state’s new law. She explains at length what concepts are illegal to teach at great length, then encourages her students to ask as many questions about the subjects as possible. Lange feels that she can educate her students about CRT without actually “teaching” it with this strategy.
“I literally put the law in front of them, gave them access with a link, and I said I need to just let you know there are now concepts that it is illegal for me to teach you about according to the state of Iowa,” she said.
“So I went through those ten defined concepts with them, um, so that they could see what the law was – and they immediately, by the time I think we were on the second or third one, they’re like ‘but is it legal for me to ask questions?’” Lange added.
“I was like ‘this is only for me, you can ask as many questions as you like;’ and then I took him to the part of the law that said this law doesn’t prohibit me from answering questions,” Lange continued as she laughed. “I said, ‘so if there is any question that you have about these defined concepts, you can ask them, and then I can answer them.”
Lange has no plans to stop teaching CRT in this way. What she is doing is absolutely shameful and downright illegal, as it’s clear that she’s blatantly breaking the law.
Iowa teacher proudly explains how she is circumventing the Critical Race Theory ban.
Instead of teaching CRT, she reviews the CRT concepts that are called out in the law, and encourages her kids to ask questions about the concepts.

This indoctrination of our children by the “woke” left has gone way too far, and it needs to come to an end. If we don’t stop teachers like Lange from teaching CRT, the next generation of Americans really may be doomed.
