Is CPS A Radical Political Organization Or An Ideological Enforcement Outfit?

CHICAGO GOP: “It is hard to decide whether CPS has become a radical political organization or an ideological enforcement outfit straight out of North Korea,”

Having received complaints from parents of Chicago schoolchildren, today the Chicago Republican Party decried the attempts of Chicago Public Schools to inject Critical Race Theory into private homes across Chicago with a “Say Their Names Tookits” to parents without any request or invitation in reaction to last week's Breanna Taylor grand jury decision. 

“It is outrageous that CPS would be arrogant enough to seek to direct parents on how to ‘talk to their children”, especially when the package is nothing short of an ideological indoctrination course,” said Chairman Steve Boulton.  “We need many conversations about race in America today, but this radical view is not constructive.”

The “toolkit” is attached to a mass email to parents from “Chicago Public Schools” signed by CEO Janice Jackson.  The “Tookit” is directed to just one issue, “anti-racism” and initially refers parents to a piece in which describes teaching as “an act of resistance” while asserting that teachers “stand in a powerful and political position” while describing how topics like literature, history and science all must be turned to the topic of racial history.  

The toolkit contains links to no less than 50 different publications, all of which focus on only one topic, racism, with documents such as “The American Nightmare,” “Violent Protests Are Not the Story, Police Violence Is”;  “Ending Curriculum Violence”, “Teaching Young Children About Bias”; “The Urgent Need Media for Anti-Racist Education.”  It also contains a link to a New York Times “timeline” on the Breanna Taylor shooting that conveniently omits a crucial fact from the press conference of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron:  at least one witness confirmed that the police did announce the raid and was it was not “no knock.” 

“It is hard to decide whether CPS has become a radical political organization or an ideological enforcement outfit straight out of North Korea,” stated Boulton.  “Either way, CPS needs fundamental reform from top to bottom to concentrate on education, not socio-political theories of its leadership.”
