5,000 Teachers Vow to Defy Laws, Teach Critical Race Theory

'We, the undersigned educators, refuse to lie to young people about U.S. history and current events—regardless of the law...'

The Zinn Education Project, a Marxist organization inspired by left-wing historical interpreter Howard Zinn, has collected more than 5,000 signatures from public school teachers, principals and staff who pledged to violate state laws and keep indoctrinating students with Critical Race Theory.

“We, the undersigned educators, refuse to lie to young people about U.S. history and current events—regardless of the law,” the pledge states.

The Zinn Education Project has catalogued the names, cities, states and testimonies of the public school teachers who have signed the pledge.

The pledge, which was posted on June 21, said that legislators in 26 states have introduced bills to force “teachers to lie to students about the role of racism, sexism, heterosexism, and oppression throughout U.S. history.”

The teachers, instead, will continue to push anti-white critical race theory, anti-male feminism, and LGBT ideology. Their political ideology rests on the Marxist assumption that all humans exist as oppressors or as the oppressed.

On its website, the group asserted that America “was founded on dispossession of Native Americans, slavery, structural racism and oppression; and structural racism is a defining characteristic of our society today.”

They also listed examples of “racial inequality” that echo Democratic Party talking points: “Everything from police violence, to the prison system, to the wealth gap, to maternal mortality rates, to housing, to education” reflects “anti-Blackness,” the organization claimed.

The Zinn Education Project groaned that Missouri‘s anti-CRT legislation bans any teachings that “identifies people or groups of people, entities, or institutions in the United States as inherently, immutably, or systemically sexist, racist, anti-LGBT, bigoted, biased, privileged, or oppressed.”

Missouri’s legislation codifies the anti-Marxist principle, equal justice under the law, that defined the American republican until the mid-20th century.

Teachers wrote testimonials on the Zinn webpage that outlined their reasons for signing the oath to violate state laws.

Lisa Martin, who lives in Mancos, Colorado, wrote that she will not “hide the truth, or white-supremacy wash the truth, or pretend that atrocities that occurred didn’t happen.”

Jessica Williams, who lives in Tuscon, Arizona, openly admitted that white Christians should be excluded from classrooms.

“They have the right to learn about the contributions and impact that Black Americans, women, LGBTQ+, Latin/a/ex, Native Tribes,Asian & Pacific Islander, all religions other than Christianity, and all other non-white Europeans have had to America.”

Many teachers, including Cory Gann in Seattle, Washington, proclaimed that children expect adults to act as social justice warriors.

“Young children are keen observers of the world and recognize inequity and privilege disparity,” he wrote. “They regard the adult world as responsible for righting social wrongs, being on the side of fairness, and truly promoting social justice.”
