Fox News Opinion: Fighting critical race theory: the law is a parent’s best weapon

(May 19, 2022): In an opinion piece for Fox News, Kimberly Hermann explains that it is time for parents to go on offense and rid our nation’s classrooms of woke education. Hermann who is general counsel for Southeastern Legal Foundation, writes:

Teach kids to hate America so that they destroy it. That is the unmistakable goal of those putting critical race theory into our nation’s public schools.

Too many parents are failing to use the sharpest arrow in their quiver—the law. And it’s not their fault. The law is understandably confusing and even intimidating. But it doesn’t have to be.

The law can be a powerful weapon, offering hope for a lasting victory that can’t easily be undone by the next election. We are on the front lines every day, leading the constitutional battle in the courtroom with the nation’s first comprehensive lawsuits against CRT in the classroom and teacher training. But in our experience parents need more than lawsuits; they need answers to their questions right now, before their child’s school has an opportunity to treat people differently because of the color of their skin, discriminate because of viewpoint, cause individuals to self-censor, or force individuals to accept beliefs with which they do not agree.

She continues by explaining that the progressive left is using America’s children as its army to fight a cultural and constitutional war aimed at undermining our American republic and destroying the Constitution.

For decades those who would remake our country have tried to tear down America and replace it with a collectivist fantasy. The stark reality is while we fought on Capitol Hill, in our state legislatures and in the courts, they were using a new weapon to cultivate a new army tasked with hating America. The weapon: critical race theory. The new army: America’s children.
