(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Anaheim Union High School District is implementing a Black Lives Matter Task Force to police middle and high school students about how their “implicit biases affect others” and the “daily effects of white privilege.”
The task force assisted in building the school’s curriculum in order to address “issues related to racial justice.”
“In an effort to bring the concepts of racial justice to the forefront of your education during Black History Month, the BLM Task Force created a lesson for all 7th graders to help you explore and think critically regarding concepts of race, racism and racial equity,” the curriculum said.
According to the Daily Caller, students and staff created the BLM Task Force, who put together the lessons specifically for grades 7-12, arguing that “it is a crucial part of Civic Engagement.”
The new lessons are part of a 2020 resolution by the high school’s board mandating teachers to add the assignments to their classes as either lessons or homework. The curriculum requires science teachers to give a lesson on “implicit bias,” teaching kids to not “judge a book by its cover.”
Lessons for older students focus on empathy, prejudice, the “school to prison pipeline,” the “daily effects of white privilege” and so-called systemic racism.
A lesson known as “stay woke” is geared towards 11th graders. The class instructs kids on the origins of alleged implicit biases and their effect on others. Students also reflect on assimilation and cultural identity.
Throughout the entire curriculum there are themes of black victimhood and critical race theory, and discouragement of dissenting ideas.
“This lesson is designed to help you explore and think critically about concepts such as race, racism and racial equity, which can be a challenging topic,” the curriculum stated. “Inappropriate comments or remarks will be identified for correction.”
Implemented for Black History Month, the curriculum encourages students to sign up for other events promoted by the Task Force, usually offering community service hours or earning extra credit.
Many found this approach to be detestable, but Wenyuan Wu, executive director of Californians for Equal Rights Foundation, objected to it on the grounds that students are struggling with their actual academic performance in Anaheim.
“The 2022 California Smarter Balanced test results show that only 23% of students in the Anaheim Union High School District could do math at the grade level and the English proficiency level was 43%,” Wu said. “Instead of ramping up its efforts to help struggling students from underprivileged backgrounds academically, AUHSD has doubled down on its indoctrination attempts to infuse Race Marxism in math, science, history, social studies and more.”
