Dear Mr. Golden: Tennessee Parents Letter Writing Campaign on CRT

Spread the love

Worried parents from the Williamson County, TN chapter of Moms for Liberty started a letter-writing campaign in May called “Dear Mr. Golden” with testimonials from parents on the effects of the Critical Race Theory (CRT) curriculum on their children. Mr. Golden is the superintendent of schools for Williamson County. Still, these letters could easily be written to almost any superintendent in the country because CRT has, in many American schools, infiltrated K-12 schools.

Some of the letters on the Moms for Liberty Private Facebook page are addressed as “DearTN.”  The “DearTN” letters are warnings from parents who have moved to Tennessee from states like Illinois and California, and New York.  A father who moved to TN with his family posted a video explaining his take on Critical Race Theory:

“Never announces itself as CRT. It’s going to come in the form of other ideas; ‘white privilege,’ ‘unconscious bias training,’ ‘white fragility,’ but its most typical disguise is DEI—Diversity, Equity, Inclusion. Another word you’ll hear a lot is anti-racism or anti-racism training. These ideas sound and look great—who doesn’t want to be about diversity and inclusion and equity? I want to be fair! I love diversity. I want to be welcoming and include people! The problem with all of that is none of these terms mean what they sound like.”

The Williamson County chapter has been extremely active and organized, with over 1700 members joining since May. Most recently, Steenman and others presented a comprehensive review of the Wit and Wisdom curriculum that is now in schools all over Tennessee. Tennessee House Bill 580 bans the theory and teachings related to CRT in Tennessee schools.
