“The introduction of critical race theory (CRT) and race-based instruction in schools has disrupted American classrooms from coast to coast and impacted families from every ethnic, cultural, and income background.” That’s the opening sentence of a new book that chronicles the story of individual parents, students, and school board members who are fighting this ideological indoctrination. One of the co-authors of that book joins the Anchoring Truths Podcast.
Lance Izumi is Senior Director of the Center for Education at the Pacific Research Institute. He has written and produced books, studies and films on a wide variety of education topics. His new co-authored book that we’ll discuss today is THE GREAT PARENT REVOLT: How Parents and Grassroots Leaders Are Fighting Critical Race Theory in America’s Schools.
In 2016-17, Mr. Izumi served on President Trump’s transition Agency Action Team for education policy. As a member of the transition team, he drafted policy papers and recommendations for consideration by the Trump administration.
Mr. Izumi served as chief speechwriter and director of writing and research for California Governor George Deukmejian and as speechwriter to United States Attorney General Edwin Meese III in President Ronald Reagan’s administration.
