In the debate over the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in America’s classrooms, the left seems to be relying on two arguments: Critics of the theory don’t know what it is, and teachers are not teaching the theory to their students. The former is debatable, but this story demonstrates that the latter is not.

More than 4,000 teachers have signed a pledge to inject their lessons with elements of CRT even if their states ban the teaching.

The site singles out the Missouri bill, which bans any lesson that: “Identifies people or groups of people, entities, or institutions in the United States as inherently, immutably, or systemically sexist, racist, anti-LGBT, bigoted, biased, privileged, or oppressed.”

The group contends that refusal to teach about police violence, the prison
