This short article is the first in a series on antiwhite indoctrination in schools in England and Wales in 2022. The antiwhite indoctrination we are referring to is critical race theory (CRT). At it’s simplest CRT can be described as a political theory that portrays White people and White societies as uniquely and irredeemably bad and nonwhites as victims.
Some 18 months ago, in October 2020 Kemi Badenoch spoke unequivocally to parliament about the teaching of critical race theory in schools. “We don’t want to see teachers teaching their white pupils about white privilege and inherited white guilt. And let me be clear, any school which teaches these elements of critical race theory, as fact, or which promotes partisan political idea such as defunding the police without offering a balanced treatment of opposing views, is breaking the law.“ Kemi Badenoch MP and Equalities Minister
What Kemi Badenoch failed to do at the time, or since, was provide a whistleblowers site for concerned parent, teachers and individuals to report antiwhite teaching in schools and antiwhite teaching continued, seemingly unabated.
In recent months both government and individuals MPs have become more active and would appear to be taking measures to bring schools in line with legislation. In early February 2022 the Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi announced that officials from the Department for Education would investigate Brighton and Hove City Council.
This followed reports in The Telegraph (extract below) that children as young as seven will be taught the concepts of CRT, including that they are not “racially innocent”.
Three hundred teachers have already undergone this training, designed to equip them to indoctrinate their young pupils in CRT ideology. The training course, called Racial Literacy 101, is part of Brighton and Hove City council’s five-year “anti-racist” schools project.
The Racial Literacy 101 course endorses CRT and the concept of white privilege. Despite the council’s loud defense of their ‘anti-racist’ stance, Brighton and Hove attempted to block the release of PowerPoint slides from the training. Thanks to the actions of parents and councillors they were unsuccessful. This is one of the slides from the PowerPoints:
The slide clearly states that covert White Supremacy includes Paternalism, Cultural Appropriation, saying ‘Don’t blame me I never owned slaves’, Expecting POC to Teach White People, Euro-centric Curriculum, Assuming Good Intentions are Enough, Anti-immigration Policies/Practices, Claiming Reverse Racism, Denial of White Privilege and and saying ‘But What About Me’? The latter three effectively forbid White people, including White children, from being concerned about or defending themselves, at any level.
As well as the action of Nadhim Zahawi, MPs have also been active in seeking to prevent this training continuing. A group of MPs have written to the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) to ask that Brighton and Hove City council’s five-year “anti-racist” schools project be investigated “definitively and immediately”.
MPs from the ‘common sense group’ wrote to Nadhim Zahawi demanding a crackdown on councils funding these ‘sinister programmes’. “Teacher training of this kind is theoretically nonsensical and practically harmful, and will undoubtedly have a harmful impact on children,” the MPs wrote, led by the former education minister Sir John Hayes. They urged the minister to remind Local Authorities of their statutory duties and accused the council of directly breaching sections 406 and 407 of the 1996 Education Act as reported by The Telegraph:
In a welcome change from the typical reporting of the adverse affects of CRT, Bryn Harris, chief legal counsel at the Free Speech Union, appears to have made a particular, and chilling, reference to its affects on White children. He stated:
“…there’s a realistic danger that this could tip over into harassment of individual pupils – in turn potentially infringing the Equality Act. It’s the fact they’re being browbeaten and told how awful they are which is likely to have an impact on [white] students. Certainly we’re seeing parents saying their kids are exhausted, defeated, depressed [over activist teaching on racism].”
A couple of weeks later on 17th February 2022 new guidance on political impartiality in schools, which explains schools’ legal duties on political impartiality was published by the Department for Education.
Our next article will review this guidance, it is certainly not all good news
