Winsome Sears Dismantles CNN Claims That CRT Not Taught in Schools

'It is part of the curriculum, it is weaved in and out of the curriculum...'

Virginia Lt. Gov.-elect Winsome Sears corrected CNN reporter Dana Bash’s assertion that Critical Race Theory is not taught in the state of Virginia, the Conservative Brief reported.

Bash began the interview by insinuating that CRT has no role in Virginia school curricula.

Sears, the former vice president of the Virginia Board of Education, responded, saying, “I beg to differ that CRT is not taught.”

“I didn’t say that. I just said it’s not in the curriculum, just to be clear,” Bash self-righteously interjected.

CRT and its ideas have been present in the state’s educational systems for many years, according to Sears, even if the direct terminology is not used.

“No, no, no, no, it is part of the curriculum, it is weaved in and out of the curriculum,” Sears continued, opposing Bash’s simplistic view that because a lesson does not say “Critical Race Theory,” it is not a part of the curriculum.

Sears also noted that Terry McAuliffe, the lame duck governor, forced the Board of Education to implement substantial parts of CRT.

“In fact, in 2015, former governor, who was just defeated, McAuliffe, his state Board of Education had information on how to teach it, so it’s weaved in,” she said. “So you know, it’s semantics, but it’s weaved in.”

The Lt. Gov.-elect further promised to enact a renewed and balanced system of education via her own experience of its importance.

“We’re going to have a good education system,” she said before pointing to diversity as a staple of the new system.

“It’s going to represent all people,” Sears explained. “And I’m going to help see that through, because education lifted my father out of poverty when he came to America with only $1.75. Education lifted me, because I have to find my own way in this world. And education will lift all of us.”
