7/30/21: Virginia Teachers, Upcoming “Professional Development” Got You Stressed Out? Tired of The Equity Enema? Help Arrives August 21
Parents/Teachers, below are the “thought leaders” that helped to craft the awful Critical Race Theory “educational” material called “EdEquity Virginia”. Below that are the key areas of focus for the upcoming school year across ALL of Virginia.
Every single once meaningful subject contains CRT/Social Justice garbage. For example, we no longer have “normal” math, you know with numbers? Somehow numbers are racist and therefore we now have “equitable” math. Leave it to race hustlers to develop that concept.
If you’re a teacher OR you know a teacher that is getting ready to be subjected to an “Equity Enema” aka “Professional Development” starting around August 17th, encourage them to come to the “PACT to School” event. Dr. James Lindsay, Asra Nomani and Luke Rosiak will be our speakers and we will be dissecting, debunking, and derailing the State of VA and your school districts attempt to brainwash you and our students. Make no mistake, what they are doing is truly evil, hateful and racist. See ticket details at the bottom of this post.

EquityVA's Key Terms and Focus
Anti-Racism: Acknowledges that racist beliefs and structures are pervasive in all aspects of our lives and requires action to dismantle those beliefs and structures. This requires that school leaders hold educators and students accountable when they say and do things that make school unsafe, and that they dismantle systems perpetuating inequitable access to opportunity and outcomes for students historically marginalized by race.
Cultural Competency: Having an awareness of one’s own cultural identity and views about difference, and the ability to learn and build on the varying cultural and community norms of students and their families. It is the ability to understand the within-group differences that make each student unique, while celebrating the between-group variations that make our country a tapestry.
Culturally Relevant Pedagogy: Recognizes the importance of including students’ cultural references in all aspects of learning.
Culturally Relevant/Responsive Teaching: The behavioral expressions of knowledge, beliefs, and values that recognize the importance of racial and cultural diversity in learning. An approach that emphasizes using the cultural knowledge, prior experiences, frames of reference, and performance styles of ethnically diverse students to make learning encounters more relevant to and effective for them.
Cultural Proficiency: Environments that create opportunities for access, empowerment, and achievement by acknowledging, valuing, advocating, and empowering cultural diversity in all aspects of the educational process.
Disproportionality: A group’s representation in a particular category that exceeds the expectations for that group or differs substantially from the representation of others in that category.
Disciplinary Disproportionality: The disproportionately high rates at which students from certain racial/ethnic groups are subjected to office discipline referrals, suspensions, school arrests, and expulsion.
Diversity: Recognizes differences and respects and values each individual irrelevant of their background including: age, gender, race/ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, and national origin. (VDOE.
Education Equity: Eliminating the predictability of student outcomes based on race, gender, zip code, ability, socioeconomic status or languages spoken at home.
Inclusive School Communities: Environments where all students, educators, and families feel supported and are extended a sense of belonging regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, identity, learning preferences, socio-economic status or education.
Marginalized Students: Those that have been systematically excluded and relegated to lower educational opportunity. In Virginia specifically, it is those groups of students who are over represented in VDOE’s equity gap data and includes; Black and Hispanic students, economically disadvantaged students, English Learners, and students with disabilities.
Opportunity Gap: Describes the complex issues that contribute to achievement gaps and recognizes the historical and societal implications of the way race and class influence the kind of education and access to support a student is likely to receive.
Racial Equity (Racial Justice): The systematic fair treatment of people of all races, resulting in equitable opportunities and outcomes for all. It is not just the absence of discrimination and inequities, but also the presence of deliberate systems and supports to achieve and sustain racial equity.
