(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) After the Anti-Defamation League denied a report that it promotes Critical Race Theory in public schools, the group said that it would review its curriculum to remove materials “misaligned with ADL’s values and strategy.”
Fox News Digital investigated the ADL’s education documents, which reach 46,000 teachers and 4.8 million students each year, and found that the group promoted concepts like intersectionality, gender ideology, structural racism, reparations and white privilege.
“We do not teach Critical Race Theory, period,” an ADL spokesperson said.
Yet, an article titled “Engaging Young People in Conversations about Race and Racism,” outlined the “key elements of critical race theory.”
That training document taught children to believe in race-based power and oppression hierarchies.
The “flip side of white privilege is structural racism, which oppresses and marginalizes people of color through societal institutions like education, law enforcement, voting, employment and other systems,” the document said.
The ADL also praised radical political movements, like the Women’s March and Black Lives Matter.
One activity in the anti-bias training directs students to “reflect” on the Women’s March through an intersectionality framework.
The group said that its goal is to “fight antisemitism and all forms of bigotry and prejudice, from virulent anti-Zionism to vicious xenophobia. In service to our mission, we have developed anti-bias and anti-hate education programs over the past four decades.”
The ADL supports these radical ideas and groups through its anti-bias seminars, called the World of a Difference Institute Training Program. These white-guilt training sessions reap massive rewards for the group.
Nevada’s Clark County School District paid the ADL $75,000 for three years of “anti-bias professional learning for students and staff.”
Legal Insurrection founder Bill Jacobson, who reviewed the ADL’s anti-bias curriculum, said that concepts like critical race theory are taught as fact rather than as highly disputed ideological tools.
“There are no counter-arguments presented. These lesson plans … reflect how ADL has lost its way,” he said. “It substitutes racial justice dogma and ideology for fact-based analysis. This is not education; it’s manipulation.”
