"Once the citizens of White County realize that critical race theory is not a threat to White County, but is actively in the schools now, they will express their concern," said group spokesman James King.
CRT, according to some, is designed to divide, alienate, destroy and bring revolution as well as implement a communist-type rule.
White County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Laurie Burkett said the accusations from the group are not true.
"I’m super proud of our school district and I’m super proud of our teachers and what we teach," Burkett said. "We will always teach the Georgia Standard of Excellence straight from the [Georgia] Department of Education. That is what we teach in our schools, that is what we teach in our classrooms every single day and we will continue to do this."
Citizens for Transparent Education pointed to meetings held over the past year by a group of school officials who were identified as "Warriors for Social Justice." Burkett said that group met to simply talk about what was going on in the world and express their feelings.
"It had nothing to do with students or curriculum," Burkett said. "It was our teachers just processing what was happening in the world.”
