Reducing High School Standards is Bigotry
Teaching for Success, by Kari Lake, Candidate for Governor, Arizona No child should ever be taught that their skin color, or where they come from, is what defines them. That is racism, pure and simple, no matter what anyone wants to call it. It needs to stop. This craziness is teaching kids to be suspicious of, even fear, their classmates. It’s teaching them to judge every single aspect of life through a racial lens. And it’s destroying their self-confidence. It must stop.
