Biden administration looks to push critical race theory via federal grant program

President Joe Biden's administration is seeking to elevate critical race theory and the dangers of misinformation in the country's classrooms by prioritizing federal grants for programs that would teach students about the two subjects.

Biden's Education Department proposed the priorities for American history and civics education curricula through a regulation published this week after the president signaled the approach via executive actions taken early in his term.

The first priority's objective is to encourage "culturally responsive teaching and learning" in schools by giving precedence to grants for "projects that incorporate racially, ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse perspectives" into their syllabuses, according to the guidance.

Quoting from professor and activist Ibram X. Kendi, who popularized his "anti-racist" theory, the idea is to create “identity-safe” classrooms in a post-George Floyd school environment.
