Terry McAuliffe Claims CRT Not Taught in Va: Virginia Dept. of Education Told Schools to ‘Embrace Critical Race Theory’ While Terry McAuliffe Was Governor

This next statement will not come as a shock to you, but Democratic candidate for Virginia governor, Terry McAuliffe is a bald-faced liar. In an interview last week, McAuliffe flatly said that Critical Race Theory (CRT) is not taught in Virginia, but it is. Not only that, but last time McAuliffe was governor, his Department of Education told schools to embrace CRT. If elected, McAuliffe will move full steam ahead on CRT.

That should be enough to deny McAuliffe another term as governor of Virginia. Before this was revealed the race was neck and neck. This should put Youngkin over the top. The slideshow, unearthed by investigative reporter Christopher Rufo, is titled “Legal Implications of School Discipline: Street ‘CRED’ (Culturally Responsive and Equitable Discipline).” Its main feature is CRT. The presentation is dated September, 22, 2015, and was published by the Education Department under McAuliffe.

One slide, describing “culturally-responsive alternatives to suspension” to educators, notes to “incorporate Critical Race Theory lens,” while another slide cites professor Geneva Gay with the quote “CRT [culturally responsive teaching] makes learning more appropriate and effective for students.”

A third slide advises to “embrace Critical Race Theory” and “engage in race-conscious teaching and learning.”

The new document showing that the state was implementing CRT under McAuliffe’s reign in Virginia comes as McAuliffe vehemently denies CRT is being taught in schools, despite a slew of recent evidence contradicting his position.

McAuliffe claimed:

“Let’s just be clear. We don’t teach Critical Race Theory. This is a made-up, this is a Trump-Betsy DeVos-Glenn Youngkin plan to divide people, and it really bothers me.”

(Youngkin) “talks about Critical Race Theory. He talks about having these parents meetings on Critical Race Theory. It really bothers me because it is a racist dog whistle. We don’t teach Critical Race Theory here in Virginia.”

From Breitbart News

In June, McAuliffe dismissed CRT as a “right-wing conspiracy” and called it “totally made up by Donald Trump and Glenn Youngkin.”

McAuliffe’s campaign did not respond to Breitbart News’s request for comment on the newly surfaced slideshow.

In response to McAuliffe repeatedly refusing to acknowledge CRT in schools, Youngkin’s campaign charged in a statement to Breitbart News on Thursday that McAuliffe wants to “keep parents out of the classroom so his special interest allies can force their radical political agenda into classrooms and tell children what to think instead of teaching them how to think.”
