The Education Department wants to give priority to schools teaching divisive critical race theory and other ideologies.
Biden’s Education Department recently proposed a rule that would prioritize grant applications to schools wanting to include critical race theory, the 1619 Project and other “anti-racism” studies into their curriculum.
“We propose these priorities to support the development of culturally responsive teaching and learning and the promotion of information literacy skills in grants under these programs,” the proposed rule reads.
The rule also states that the priorities may be used in the fiscal year 2021 and beyond.

One priority of the rule is to prioritize grants that add “racially, ethnically, culturally and linguistically diverse perspectives into teaching and learning.” Legal Insurrection reported that applicants “would be encouraged to note systemic marginalization, biases, inequities, and discriminatory policy and practice in American history; and create inclusive, supportive, and identity-safe learning environments.”
As conservatives have pointed out, critical race theory and related “anti-racism” ideologies are divisive and regressive. They have no place in our nation’s classrooms. Students should be taught to never judge or discriminate based on another’s skin color – the opposite of what critical race theory teaches.
