Derrick Bell’s Critical Race Theory and Bill Ayers’ ‘Education Debt’

By Danette Clark    March 20, 2012

The most recent from Breitbart.com’s Big Government regarding President Obama’s mentor, Derrick Bell, is that “a radical organization known as the Pacific Educational Group (PEG) is actively promoting Derrick Bell’s Critical Race Theory in public elementary and high schools nationwide, with an intense focus on what PEG calls “Systemic Racism.”

What many don’t know is that Pacific Educational Group is part of a network of progressive organizations and schools affiliated with the Coalition of Essential Schools (CES).

CES is a network of thousands of schools nationwide that received big dollars from President Obama and Bill Ayers through their work on the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge in the 1990s.

Both Ayers and Obama still promote CES schools today.

PEG is just one of many radical organizations working with CES and countless other schools in the U.S. to indoctrinate students with a curriculum that weaves anti-white, anti-America bias into every course subject, from writing and history, to science and “radical math.”

According to Brietbart.com, “a promotional video for PEG explains that the organization targets ‘white culture’ as the source of the problems that minority students face.”

A look at PEG’s website and the line up of educators and keynote speakers for its annual summits also speaks volumes:

.  Eddie Moore, Jr., founder of the White Privilege Conference. Moore’s conference is promoted by many educators and school districts across the country and hosts such speakers as socialist and Obama pal, Cornel West, who has referred to the United States as “a racist patriarchal” nation where “white supremacy” continues to define everyday life.

The Conference also provides musical entertainment from groups like The Coup, whose lyrics incite violence and hatred toward whites with songs like “5 Million Ways to Kill a CEO” and “Kill My Landlord”.

.  Tim Wise, a self-proclaimed anti-racism expert, incessantly expresses his disdain for traditional values and white America with statements like this:

“If fascism comes, it will spring from the soil of middle America, from people known as values voters but whose values are toxic, from simple folk whose simplicity, far from being admirable, is better labeled ignorance, from ‘all-American’ types whose patriotism is a dagger pointed at the very heart of the national interest…If fascism comes, it will be ushered in by tailgaters at the big football game, by Joe Six Pack…If fascism comes it will dress like a hockey mom, or a NASCAR dad.”

.  Linda Darling Hammond, a top education adviser to Obama’s presidential campaign. Hammond sat on the board of the Bay Area Coalition of Essential Schools and has worked closely with Bill Ayers on social justice education through CES and the American Education Research Association.

.  Gloria Ladson-Billings, co-author with Bill Ayers of City Kids, City Schools: More Reports from the Front Row. Billings introduced Derrick Bell’s Critical Race Theory to education to explain and promote the idea that white supremacy is the cause of the “achievement gap” between whites and minorities.

Billings believes, as does Bill Ayers and Linda Darling Hammond, that an education debt is owed to minorities. Billings has also worked closely with them through CES and the American Education Research Association.

So, to sum up what minority children are learning from President Obama’s friends and colleagues in education, all whites are racist, they are the reason for all of your problems, and they owe you.

Not exactly motivation for success.
