Critical Race Theory in our Schools | Eastern North Carolina Now | Is Critical Race Theory (CRT) being taught secretly in Beaufort County Schools?

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
A Message to Voters of Beaufort County from Gary Carlton

    The core idea behind CRT is that race is a social construct, and that racism is not merely the product of individual bias or prejudice, but something embedded in our legal system and policies. CRT promotes how American racism has shaped public policy or a divisive discourse that pits people of color against white people. Liberals and Conservatives are in sharp disagreement. Critics of CRT charge that the theory leads to negative dynamics, such as a focus on group identity over universal shared traits; divides people into oppressed and oppressor groups and urges intolerance.

    CRT goes by many names:

  • Systematic Racism
  • White Privilege
  • Diversity
  • Equity
  • Inclusion

    If you ask our School Administration if CRT is taught in Beaufort County, they will certainly tell you that it is not. In my opinion, this is not true. CRT by its many other names still exists in our School System.

    The North Carolina Legislature adopted H324 "Ensuring Dignity & Non-Discrimination in Schools" in 2021.

    "This act demonstrated the General Assembly's intent that students, teachers, administrators, and other school employees recognize the equality and rights of all persons, prohibit public school units from promoting certain concepts that are contrary to the equality and rights of all persons."

    This Resolution prohibits schools from teaching:

  • One race or sex is inherently superior
  • An individual is inherently racist or sexist or oppressive
  • An individual should be discriminated against because of his race or sex
  • An individual's moral character is determined by his race or sex
  • An individual should feel discomfort or guilt
  • The United States is a meritocracy that is racist or sexist

    This Resolution also states that we must:

  • Respect the dignity of others
  • Acknowledge the right of others to express differing opinions
  • Foster and defend intellectual honesty and freedom of speech

    Why did Our School Board not adopt this resolution and make the Dignity and Antidiscrimination resolution a policy?

    Why did the Board adopt a Watered-Down guideline which does not ensure anything?????

    Our School Board must adopt H324 as the policy of all Beaufort County Schools, not a guideline for our Schools.
