Accuracy in Media President Adam Guillette Uncovers Teachers Still Teaching Critical Race Theory in Public Schools Regardless of Law
By Julie Carr – March 30, 2022
Live from Music Row Tuesday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy welcomed Accuracy in Media President Adam Guillette, who revealed teachers in Metro Nashville Public Schools are still teaching CRT and 1619 Project curriculum in the classroom despite the law.
Leahy: Well, you’re with Accuracy in Media. You caught my attention with a little undercover video you did here in Nashville. Tell us a little bit about what you discovered in that.
Guillette: Sure. We have investigated dozens and dozens of school districts around America and many in Tennessee, including Nashville, to see whether or not bans on Critical Race Theory actually stopped Critical Race Theory from ending up in the classrooms.
And quite disappointingly, what we found consistently, including in Nashville, is that these Critical Race Theory bans don’t stop a thing, and these administrators and teachers do whatever the heck they want. It’s outrageous.
Leahy: Yes. That pretty much is the case. And it’s interesting, because we followed that law and it was very well crafted, the 14 tenets of Critical Race Theory that are not allowed to be taught in K-12 public schools here in Nashville.
