When we send our children to school, we entrust their education to our teachers and school districts. But as parents, we also want access to what our kids are learning. Parents and community leaders like myself from districts across Wisconsin testified Wednesday before the joint education committee regarding new curriculum transparency legislation. This is needed now more than ever, with the pernicious ideology of Critical Race Theory (CRT) sweeping our culture and seeping in through our schools.

At its core, CRT stems from the concept of critical theory and therefore aims to divide people into “oppressed” and “oppressor” groups, foment hate and chaos, and eventually disintegrate our society. It claims that concepts such as white privilege are the reality, and we should pursue equity instead of meritocracy.

But as a black former U.S. Air Force officer and pilot living in a nearly all-white community for the last 18 years, my personal experience here has not been rooted in oppression, division, and racial privilege being stacked against me. Instead, I’ve experienced equality, unity, and mutual respect. I love the people of Slinger. I have children and grandchildren in the district, and since 2008 I have served our middle and high school football programs, first as a coach and then as president of our Gridiron Club.
