apple on teacher's deskDespite adamant opposition from parents, the liberal majority on the North Carolina State Board of Education has approved passage of radical teaching standards for the state's public schools.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that upset parents made their voices heard during board of education discussions about the widely-criticized critical race theory (CRT) standards being implemented in K-12 history lessons. But as Tami Fitzgerald of the North Carolina Values Coalition relays, it was to no avail.

"They were angry that the state board wouldn't listen to their concerns," she laments. "In the end the state board did what it was going to do anyway."

Fitzgerald says parents throughout the nation are profoundly concerned by CRT's Marxist foundation.

"At a basic level, what's wrong with the standards, and this is where our opposition springs from, is that the standards are written to encourage the adoption of critical [race] theory as a teaching tool in the classrooms across North Carolina," she continues.

The state's education department is working to have the curriculum ready in time for the 2022-2023 school year.
