Parents, Students Sue Virginia School Board for Adding Critical Race Theory to Curriculum

A group of parents and students in Virginia is suing the Albemarle County School Board over its efforts to implement critical race theory into the curriculum.

CRT is a controversial ideology rooted in Marxism and teaches racism exists everywhere and that whites will always be racist.

Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), which represents the nine parents and their children, says the program will "indoctrinate children in an ideology that views everyone and everything through the lens of race."

Enacted in 2019, the policy teaches that it's more appropriate to treat one another differently because of our race. Critics say CRT also persuades students to support ideas that go against their moral and religious beliefs.

The Albemarle school district has even said that every core subject will include lessons about racial stereotyping and diverse treatment based on race and religion.

The plaintiffs are seeking the court's intervention to stop enforcement of the policy.
