A middle school teacher in Rhode Island has come forward to reveal critical race theory is widely taught in public schools as a growing number of parents and states push back on the harmful viewpoint that teaches racism is systemic.
Ramona Bessinger, a Providence, Rhode Island, English teacher appeared on “Eat the Press” with Steve Malzberg to share her concerns about the “radicalized” curriculum.
“We’re not teaching critical race theory. It’s implicit in the culture. It is implicit in all the reading materials. It is implicit in all the projects that the kids are doing,” Bessinger said.
“It is causing great harm and racial divide and hostility between children and it really has to stop,” she added.
Bessinger also shared her concerns about how pervasive the theory had become.
“It’s in the art projects, the history class, the English classes,” she said.
“It is in the language that we are told to use in our professional development,” Bessinger added. “It is absolutely everywhere.”
The shocking interview comes as North Dakota passed a law last week to ban critical race theory in K-12 public schools, joining several states passing legislation against the teaching.
