SEARS ON CRT: The Left is Using ‘Semantics,’ Because We Know ‘It’s Definitely Being Taught’

Lt. Governor Winsome Sears (R-VA) spoke with Fox News about Governor Youngkin’s ban on Critical Race Theory and how the progressive members of the left like to pretend it’s not being taught.

“I can tell you that they are using semantics, the other side is.” Sears told “America Reports Monday. “When it comes to CRT, it is definitely being taught in some form or fashion. We know last year the Loudoun County school board spent about 300,000 plus dollars, that’s real money, that’s going to jail money, to bring CRT in some form or fashion, they used a consultant specifically for CRT.”

“Before all that, in 2015, the then school superintendent, the state school superintendent, spoke directly about CRT and encouraged the teaching of it,” Sears continued. “And then two years later, you will note that the Virginia State Board of Education on its official website recommended books on CRT.”

“Among the issues Youngkin tackles in his slate of executive orders is education. The governor signed an executive order ‘to restore excellence in education by ending the use of divisive concepts, including Critical Race Theory, in public education,’” Fox News Reports.

“Let’s talk about what’s really happening,” Sears says. “Our children are not learning. We don’t have time to teach about oppression, that the child is a victim, that the White kids are the oppressors. We don’t have time in a school day for that.”
