Action Civics is a ‘woke’ program that calls itself Civics (to draw conservative support) but it is not actually a Civics education curriculum at all!
National Review: With last week’s introduction in Congress of the misleadingly named Civics Secures Democracy Act, we are headed toward an epic clash over the spread of uber-controversial pedagogies — Critical Race Theory and Action Civics — to America’s classrooms. I don’t know whether the country will wake up to the danger of this legislation before or after it passes. Sooner or later, however, the truth will get out. When it does, the culture war will have merged with K–12 education-policy disputes to a degree never before seen.
Families should be aware of implementing the National Common Core Standards, Critical Race Theory, and “Action Civics” in their state. It is essential to act at the local level and gain control of education and the rights of parents and students to have an education free of political bias.
A Parent Reported The Following Survey was given to Eighth Grade Civics Students in Latrobe, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania:
Critical Race Theory in the definition of one word. “Theory which is an idea, a thought, an unproven idea that someone dreamed up. Look it up in any dictionary. I have a theory that we should make all these experts move into a secure zone and live their ideas to prove they are right.
“This dearth of civics literacy has prompted many efforts to provide basic civics knowledge to the citizenry. But beware: not everything that calls itself “civics education” is actually civics education. Much of it, often hidden behind the misleading terms “action civics” or “new civics,” is actually progressive activist training in disguise. Here’s a case in point:
Last month, Senators Chris Coons (D-DE) and John Cornyn (R-TX) and Representatives Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), Tom Cole (R-OK), and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) introduced the “Civics Secures Democracy Act” (CSDA), a bill designed “to restore the importance placed on civics education in American classrooms with targeted federal investments to support and expand access to civics and history education,” according to the press release announcing the bill. You may be thinking: “A bipartisan investment in civics education introduced by members of both houses? Sign me up!” Not so fast.”
This approach of “I hear you, and I am with you”, is designed to get Republican lawmakers and parents to buy into the pitch. only to become a stealth time bomb in the next generation’s indoctrination on things that are not so.
Danger Danger Will Robinson…parents and lawmakers must step up on this one now.
