Jefferson County Public Schools in Louisville, Kentucky, hosted a “Racial Equity Institute” this summer, including presentations on racial equity and anti-racism math, according to reports.

Jason Anger and Daniel Buck reported on the event in The Chalkboard Review and called the lineups “the biggest hit list of radical progressive ideas”.

Topics in a presentation given by Atherton High School Deputy Principal Dr Julie Chancellor included Critical Race Theory, Implicit Bias Assessment, Whiteness Theory and Historical Causes of iniquity. The training recommended books such as “How to Be an Anti-Racist” and “White Fragility” by Ibrim X. Kendi, according to the report.

The Chancellor’s presentation said racism is “so pervasive” in society that it is “almost invisible” and “specifically affects education”.

The slides also highlight the difference between teacher and student demographics, noting that 40% of students in the district are white, while 84% of teachers are white.

“White teachers perceive the academic abilities of their black and brown students to be inferior to those of their white students,” the presentation reads.

Presentation slides from a session on teaching “anti-racist math,” say math classes “that focus on understanding social and racial injustices are an important part of the broader fight for justice.”

This training is not the only one organized by the district focusing on diversity, equity and inclusion. One October training focuses on culturally appropriate curriculum, and another focuses on LGBTQ+ inclusion (for middle and high schools). A November training is titled Supporting Early Child LGBTQ+ Students/Families and focuses on “preschool teachers can provide a welcoming and inclusive classroom environment for students and families that supports diversity and equity.”

“If schools across the country were to abandon all ‘anti-racism’ training and their devotion to all things queer, and instead focus on developing what it takes to be a professional – content expertise, classroom management techniques, curriculum development – then we wouldn’t see parents withdrawing from public education in numbers like they are,” Anger and Buck wrote in their article.
