California Republican recall election frontrunner Larry Elder recently revealed he would support banning the teaching of Critical Race Theory in public schools if he becomes governor.
Fox News reports:
“My preference is for local school boards to decide what the curriculum is, but I think this is so bad and so insulting that I would look into some legislation like that,” Elder told Fox News.
Elder is the leading replacement candidate in the California recall election. But a Sept. 5 poll showed 53% of voters would keep Gov. Gavin Newsom in office. Newsom only needs a simple majority to keep his position.
Critical race theory “teaches little white boys and girls that they are oppressors and little black boys and girls that they are eternal victims,” Elder told Fox News.
Elder said parents need “an option where they can send their kids to a school that teaches this kind of nonsense and give them an option to put their kid in another school that doesn’t teach that. That’s my preference.”
The recall election happens next week on Sep. 14.
