Critical Race Theory in Wake County, NC Schools


City Journal contributing editor Christopher F. Rufo writes about the Wake County, NC school district’s Equity in Action implementation. Based on documents and notes obtained from a February 2020 teachers conference, you can read about some of the topics that the 200 attending teachers heard about, such as handling pushback from parents; the “norms of whiteness”; what is best for students and families; “color consciousness”; and the job of grouping students into the categories of inborn identity, and equalizing outcomes. As Rufo states, “Parents across the U.S. should not assume that their local district is immune to these trends.”
