Teachers in Nevada are being asked to wear body cameras in order to keep critical race theory out of the classroom, according to the Nevada Family Alliance.
Teachers in the Washoe County School District should wear body cameras, according to the Nevada Family Alliance, to guarantee that they are not teaching critical race theory (CRT). CRT is a branch of research that looks at race and racism as a social dynamic through time.
Karen England, executive director and founder of the Nevada Family Alliance, said in a statement released on Wednesday that “creating a record that may be examined by proper parties, if necessary, might be the best approach to encourage teachers to keep to traditional teaching.”
England stated, “We expect the teachers’ unions to reject this proposal immediately.” “However, we should inquire as to what they have to hide. How much more crucial is it for teachers to wear body cameras if police officers do a better job engaging with the public when they are wearing them?”
The school system has made “concerted efforts to indoctrinate pupils in the socialist narrative” purportedly linked with CRT, according to England and her organization.
The school district began collecting feedback on its additional English Language Arts curriculum for kindergarten through fifth-grade pupils at the end of April. According to the district’s website, the new curriculum focuses on “integrated social justice learning experiences [that]provide opportunity for honoring human dignity, cultivating cultural diversity, and cultivating critical thinking.”
The district’s website says, “The materials are not aligned with Critical Race Theory.” “There has been a great deal of disinformation, and we want to make it plain that this is not the case.”
“How does white male privilege help people to have a false sense of self?” asks one set of sample 5th grade discussion questions. and “Why are most heroic stories about males who are not members of varied societies about males who are not members of varied communities?” According to KTVN,
According to the Reno Gazette Journal, District Superintendent Kristen McNeill requested that a task force comprised of parents, students, employees, and district executives review what the school curriculum should teach during a Tuesday meeting.
According to The Nevada Independent, England has a history of resisting legislation geared at protecting transgender kids and raising LGBTQ awareness.
She authored a state measure in 2015 that restricted transgender pupils’ access to bathrooms. She also advised parents to keep their children at home on the “Day of Silence.” The day is an annual event that takes place in April. This is a condensed version of the information.
