A school district in Colorado Springs, Colorado, banned critical race theory from being taught in schools after a 3-2 board vote.
The vote came after a debate on Aug. 12 between parents in District 49.
Critical race theory and other closely related ideologies argue the United States is inherently racist and that skin color is used to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between white and nonwhite people. Critics claim it delegates all white people to the role of oppressors and all people of color to victims.
One parent argued that “CRT indoctrinates our children into racism.”
