Over the past week, Rio Rancho school board candidate Patrick Brenner has made headlines for his exposure of the racist Critical Race Theory training for teachers in the Rio Rancho Public Schools, which has just recently been stopped after he took note of it.
The training in the schools consists of a focus on “biases” and racism. Some particularly racist passages contained in the training include sentences like, “Because our culture has shifted from one predominantly designed around White, middle-class systems to one that is much more multi-cultural, we can no longer assume every child will respond to the same strategies.”
Another page of the training says that “implicit racial biases are activated involuntarily, without your being aware of or in control of them. That’s because they live in the subconscious mind.”
“Everyone has implicit racial biases. They are built and shaped unconsciously through our history and cultures, and no belief we have consciously chosen for ourselves. What is important is that we recognize and understand our biases so that we may adjust our behavior accordingly.”
According to Beth Pendergrass, the District’s communication director, “The training is no longer required of staff as you were aware when you sent this letter.”
Now, because Brenner has kept up screenshots on his campaign website that he obtained of the training, attorney Trace H. Jackson representing Scenario Learning, LLC (doing business as Vector Solutions) has sent him a cease and desist letter from the Critical Race Theory training company.
Thanks to H.B. 43 (The Black Education Act) sponsored by allegedly corrupt former Majority Leader Sheryl Williams Stapleton (D-Bernalillo) — which passed both chambers of the Legislature unanimously — Critical Race Theory crept into the schools.
In an email Brenner received from Pendergrass, the communications professional for the District claimed that is how the Critical Race Theory propaganda became present in the Rio Rancho Public Schools.
