"We have now reached a point in America where racism with a Marxist twist is state-sanctioned and enforced by our major social institutions. Indeed, our public and private K-12 schools are ground zero in the battle. White children are taught to be ashamed of their skin color on the grounds that they unjustly benefit from a "white supremacist" system established by their ancestors to oppress racial and ethnic minorities. Black children are taught that they are victims of a thoroughly (and permanently) racist system. American children of all races are taught that they live in an evil nation that has wreaked great harm on the world... CRT is political activism and indoctrination disguised as education."

"Parents, according to the teachers, should be considered an impediment to social justice. When one teacher asked, "How do you deal with parent pushback?"... "You can't let parents deter you from the work," the teacher said. "White parents' children are benefiting from the system" of whiteness and are" not learning at home about diversity"... Therefore, teachers have an obligation to subvert parental wishes and beliefs."
