One of the battles percolating around the issue of Critical Race Theory (CRT) centers on whether or not the neo-Marxist curriculum — and that’s according to a scholar affiliated with the left-leaning Brookings Institute — is merely teaching students Black History, which is universally accepted by good parents and educators as a right and proper educational course of action.

Finally, there are several minutes of questions asked by teachers and counselors in the district (answered by Dr.
