Critical Race Theory
Also being implemented in schools as Action Civics. Critical Race theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990s, built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. Relegated for many years to universities and obscure academic journals, over the past decade it has increasingly become the default ideology in our public institutions. Critical Race theory is fast becoming America’s new institutional orthodoxy. Yet most Americans have never heard of it ... it is fast achieving "cultural hegemony"... The question is, is that good or bad? The connection to Marxism, and recommendations to suspend private property, seize land & wealth, redistribute same, teach children that the world is divided into 'oppressors' and 'oppressed', white people are 'oppressors' based on skin color, violent attempts to force people to agree and silence dissent, all tends to indicate this is not only bad, but destructive and disastrous.

New Jersey private school teacher resigns over prevalence of critical race theory

An English teacher resigned her position at a pricey New Jersey private school in objection to the prevalence of what she called “regressive and illiberal” orthodoxies associated with critical race theory. Dwight-Englewood School near Manhattan stunted learning and placed “ideological blinders” on students by teaching them that women and racial minorities are oppressed by default, said Dana Stangel-Plowe. “The school’s ideology requires students to see themselves not as individuals, but as representatives of a group, forcing them to adopt the status of privilege or victimhood,” Stangel-Plowe wrote in her resignation letter to school leaders and her fellow English Department teachers.
