VB Schools leaders have stated that Critical Race Theory is not being implemented in our schools. I believe those statements are not truthful because I have proof that CRT IS taking place. I have also personally witnessed CRT classroom teachings. I will be providing links and documents that show CRT IS taking place in Va Beach Schools. I believe semantics are being used to cover up these teachings and trainings.
Here are just a few documents from trainings in VBCPS that mention Critical Theory.
This topic is on the agenda for discussion at this evening's formal meeting which begins 6pm. To provide your views to the board, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want a good definition of Critical Race Theory, please watch this video.
The Equity Policy promotes "Culturally Responsive Practices (CRP)". I've been asking for a definition of "CRP" but was given vague answers. This shows that CRP is actually Critical Theory.
Here are more examples of screenshots from teacher training in VBCPS in which Critical Theory is being pushed.
These are two documents given to teachers in a recent training of Virginia Beach Elementary School literacy teachers.

Statement from a VB Teacher
Victoria Manning VB School Board Campaign Statement in response to the Virginia Beach Democrat Committee
We condemn the baseless and false statements made on March 13th against Victoria Manning by the Virginia Beach Democrat Committee. This organization claimed that Mrs. Manning made "incendiary racially motivated attacks" against a fellow Board member. These claims have zero basis in fact and it is egregious slander against Mrs. Manning who is an esteemed member of the Virginia Beach School Board.
Mrs. Manning previously spoke out against a statement in the Virginian Pilot that stated: "it has been “very frustrating” to hear speaker after speaker at school board meetings — a largely white crowd — push for in-person learning, arguing it will most help the kids who are on the wrong end of the achievement gap."
Mrs. Manning felt that statement was marginalizing certain citizens and students based on skin color. Mrs. Manning has taken a stand against teachings in Virginia Beach Schools that she believes are racist and divisive. For example, recent teacher training told teachers they should "admit they are racist" and they should recognize the "privilege" they have based on their appearance. Mrs. Manning has seen first-hand Social Justice and Critical Race Theory types of teachings and trainings happening throughout Virginia Beach Schools at all levels. She will continue to stand firm against this radical leftist indoctrination and fight for all people to be recognized for the content of their character and not the color of their skin. School Board members and administrators are denying that CRT exists in our schools. Either they don't understand the definition of CRT or they are trying to hide the truth.
If you would like to stand with Mrs. Manning against the radical indoctrination of our students and teachers, send an email to the Virginia Beach School Board: email@example.com. If you have specific examples of Critical Race Theory or Social Justice teaching/training happening in VBCPS please speak up.
