WHAT ARE THE REAL ISSUES WITH "CRITICAL RACE THEORY" IN OUR SCHOOLS?
Enjoy the latest updates from the front line as Education Specialist Jonathan Butcher of the Heritage Foundation speaks on the issue of "Critical Race Theory" as it impacts our schools.
Jonathan Butcher is the Will Skillman Fellow in Education at The Heritage Foundation. He is the author of Splintered: Critical Race Theory and the Progressive War on Truth (Bombardier Books, April 2022). He co-edited and wrote chapters in The Critical Classroom (The Heritage Foundation, 2022), discussing the racial prejudice that comes from the application of critical race theory in K-12 schools. In 2021, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster nominated Jonathan to serve on the board of the South Carolina Public Charter School District, a statewide charter school authorizer. He has researched and testified on education policy around the U.S.
The Heritage Foundation is an American conservative think tank based in Washington, DC, that is primarily geared toward public policy. The foundation took a leading role in the conservative movement during the presidency of Ronald Reagan, whose policies were taken from Heritage's policy study Mandate for Leadership. Free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense—these are the values that we fight for every single day. As the nation’s largest, most broadly-supported think tank, The Heritage Foundation has long been the bastion of the American conservative movement.
Also speaking will be Matt Crouch, Regional Coordinator for Heritage Action for America. He will lay out the fieldwork that this branch of the Heritage Foundation is doing to impact policy across the nation.
