Critical Race Theory (CRT) practices are becoming embedded in our nation's schools, including here in Virginia Beach.
The Virginia Beach School Board in Sept 2020 adopted a 5 page equity policy. The policy itself does not mention CRT but it does direct "Culturally Responsive Teaching and Culturally Responsive Practices (CRP)" for teacher training and student curriculum and assessments.
Watch this short video to learning about Critical Race Theory.
The Superintendent and certain board members have denied that CRT is being implement in VB Schools. I have been attacked and called a liar and many other terrible names for exposing what is going on. I am providing documentation on this site that I have received regarding teacher training and things that students are being taught in the classroom. I will show proof that CRT ideas are being used on the VBCPS school division.
A colleague stated in an email to a constituent that the purpose of the teacher training is to help them understand their "innate racial bias". Genesis 1:27 states that God created man(kind) in His own image. We are NOT innately racist and we should NOT be making those statements to teachers or to children.
Our founders had the desire for equality for everyone, as is stated in the Declaration of Independence. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” We should be teaching unity rather than division. We should be teaching love rather than teaching to identify someone by the color of their skin. What binds us all together as Americans? I believe we all desire Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. People risk their lives everyday to come to this great nation. They certainly don't come here because they believe we are systemically racist. They know that we are a free country founded on these great principles that if you work hard and show love and compassion to your fellow man, you can succeed and achieve great things.

During the March 23, 2021 School Board meeting, Board member Carolyn Weems asked these 2 questions of the Director of Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI):
QUESTION 1: --WEEMS: Is teacher training mandatory? --DEI DIRECTOR: All teacher professional learning around culturally responsive practices (CRP) is optional. --SUPERINTENDENT IN AN EMAIL TO A CONSTITUENT: The TRAINING THAT WAS POSTED by No Left Turn was a department level training for literacy coaches and it was MANDATORY. (However, he denies that it is CRP or CRT.) https://rumble.com/ve2wxb-vbcps-critical-race-theory.html
Question 2: -- WEEMS: Is it going to impact a teacher's ability to get a promotion if they don't take the trainings for culturally responsive practices such as the Cultural Identity Master Badge? --DIRECTOR OF DEI: All training is optional, it will not impact someone from receiving a promotion
THE TRUTH DIVISION DOCUMENT FROM THE DEPT OF TEACHING AND LEARNING (DTAL)
"A demonstration of mastery in these areas, as identified by earning a master badge WILL BE A PREREQUISITE for job vacancies within the DTAL for coaching, specialist and/or curriculum coordinator positions. Furthermore, preferences will be given to teachers who have earned any of the above badges when applying for curriculum and/or textbook review committees or other DTAL-sponsored committees........

The Virginia Dept of Ed (VDOE) is leading the charge with indoctrination of CRT. This is a training that the VDOE made available to all teachers across the state: Interrogating Whiteness
