After flipping to a conservative majority, a California school board voted to ban Critical Race Theory (CRT) on Tuesday.
The Temecula Valley Unified School Board adopted a resolution 3-2 which bans the teaching of CRT from the classroom, the same night the three new board members were sworn in. The resolution was introduced by newly elected Joseph Komrosky who said the resolution was a way for him to keep “a campaign promise.”
“The first night Dr. Joseph Komrosky said ‘I ran my campaign making promises to my future constituents and tonight, I’m gonna make good on those campaign promises,’” Pastor Tim Thompson, founder of the Inland Empire Family PAC, a group focused on parental rights in education that endorsed the three candidates, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “This is the first one and he did good on that campaign promise and I’m grateful for that. He’s a man of his word. All three of them.”
CRT holds that America is systemically racist, and teaches people to consider social interactions in terms of race. Its adherents pursue antiracism by forgoing merit-based policies in favor of race-based policies.
