Key takeaway from journo’s investigation into CRT teachings: Get your kid out of public schools

A journalist’s investigation into controversial school curricula, even in conservative bastions, left him with one key takeaway: “Get your kid the heck out of traditional public schools.”
The Orwellian use of language among progressive leaders has been well documented, and so it stands to reason that those among the lower ranks in the hierarchy would employ the same methods to attain their end goals. Adam Guillette, the president of Accuracy in Media, joined Fox News host Jesse Watters Friday to discuss what his investigation found with specifics from Columbus, Ohio school districts.
After the “Jesse Watters Primetime” host aired clips from Guillette’s video where an administrative assistant detailed how they “trick them, (parents),” and a diversity, equity and inclusion director relayed an Overton Window style nudge toward their objective, he asked his guest if he was surprised by the findings.
“At this point, I’ve been in over 150 school districts across the country, and we saw the same thing again and again and again,” the journalist replied, “and we didn’t go to Berkeley, California, or Boulder, Colorado. We went to red states like Florida and we find the same social justice, critical race theory everywhere we go.”
When asked by Watters what could be done, Guillette suggested that to start, “Get your kid the heck out of traditional public schools. I was in a 3-1 Republican-t0-Democrat county in rural Tennessee and had an administrator brag about how progressive their curriculum was from an equity point of view. That’s how bad it is.”
“These aren’t one-dimensional villains. They mean well,” he expressed.
