The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn], April 29, 2022 – In a video posted by Kelli Phillips, who is running for Metro Nashville School Board District 4, a school teacher came forward to express that Critical Race Theory (CRT) is still being taught in Tennessee Schools.

Phillips said, “CRT is very very involved in our school system, yet we hear time and time again that it’s not. CRT comes in many forms.”

Phillips introduced a school teacher, only identified as ‘Mandy’ to express the “reality of what really is going on in our schools, because it’s more than you think.”

Mandy said, “So, when they (the General Assembly) passed the original bill (banning the teaching of critical race theory in May 2021), they were not specific and they were not specific for a particular reason. They would not call out a specific curriculum. ”

House Bill 0580, sponsored by Representative John Ragan (R-Oak Ridge-District 33) and Senate Bill 0623, sponsored by Senator Mike Bell (R-Riceville-District 9) in summary, deleted several obsolete provisions and made various substantive changes to education laws; and established parameters for the teaching of certain concepts related to race and sex.

The accepted curriculum being taught in Metro Nashville Public Schools is called Wit & Wisdom.

Mandy said that prior to the Wit & Wisdom curriculum being accepted, books were sent home to parents for review.  However, many of the books were sent back to the school because parents found them offensive.  One cited complaint was that one of the books pushed biases against one of our Nation’s founding fathers, George Washington, placing an extreme emphasis on the color of his skin and hair.

“It (CRT) is there.  It’s very subtle.  I have described it as an insidious creep.  And that’s what it’s doing, it’s creeping in little by little,”  Mandy said. (read the rest)
