Opposition to Teaching Racism Wins at the Ballot Box

It’s good to see that there are still a majority of Americans who oppose teaching racism at school.

Conservative candidates for local office have successfully campaigned against critical race theory — a legal framework that considers structural prejudices against minorities in present day racial discrimination — since Republican lawmakers began leveraging it in 2021 to represent general dissatisfaction with school curricula.


Meanwhile, their progressive counterparts struggle to gain traction against the narrative that has enticed voters. And with a majority of states holding local elections this year, conservatives may make even more strides at that level.

It’s not just a narrative. It’s real and people really object to it.
