Critical Race Theory written out in chalk on a chalkboard

In January, Clear Creek ISD named Eric Williams, the former Superintendent of Loudoun County, as their new superintendent. Under his watch, education officials in Loudoun County paid $625 an hour for consultation work which contained principles and core elements of Critical Race Theory. 

In an email obtained by Fox News, William acknowledged that both his principles and policies in Loudoun County align with those of CRT: 

“While [Loudoun County Public Schools] has not adopted CRT, some of the principles related to race as social construct and the sharing of stories of racism, radicalized oppression, etc. that we are encouraging through the Action Plan to Combat Systemic Racism, in some of our professional learning modules, and our use of instructional resources on the Social Justice standards, do align with the ideology of CRT.”

Once the news of Williams’ appointment broke out, Clear Creek ISD created an official policy to prohibit CRT. Much like what Williams had done in Loudoun County, Clear Creek ISD now implemented policies that align with the ideology of CRT. A parent from the Clear Creek ISD informed us that Williams has recently argued that they needed to get rid of many white teachers to replace them with people of color. 

In the 2021 fiscal year, our state allocated $31.47 billion to the Texas Education Agency. As Texas educators must obtain 150 hours of training to renew their teaching certificate each year, the Texas Education Agency allows educators to receive training from a pre-approved list of private-entity providers. These courses include “CRT in a Post-George Floyd Society” and “Anti-Racist Teacher: From Awareness to Ally to Conspirator” among many others. 

Now why are our tax dollars being spent on ensuring our educators are up-to-date on CRT teachings?
