Thursday morning on FOX and Friends, Ainsley Earhardt interviewed Jessica Anderson, the executive director of Heritage Action, and Sheri Mitchell, a parent in Gwinnett County, to discuss the deletion of a 2017 syllabus from Gwinnett County Public Schools that was submitted to the College Board by a teacher as part of the AP course audit process that contained elements of Critical Race Theory. Though the school district claims Critical Race Theory was not taught, they quickly deleted the syllabus.
Mitchell explained that parents have become more aware of Critical Race Theory being taught in the classrooms and are beginning to now find the evidence that it does exist within the walls of the school. Anderson shared that “parents do not want to see Critical Race Theory infused in the curriculum.”
Reacting to the situation, Anderson explained that demands are being made for more transparency in the curriculum, and state representatives in Georgia are currently working on legislation that may allow parents more insight into the classroom.
