A couple who home-schooled their child in California because of its woke curriculum and moved to Utah have been left stunned after finding the Republican state with a 90% white population is even worse.
Gloria Vindas and her husband Oscar said they moved from ultra liberal California so their 16-year-old son would avoid the ‘Marxist and racist’ teaching of critical race theory.
But on arriving in Utah she said she found the issue to be even more prevalent.
‘I found that they don’t call it the collegiate-level curriculum of critical race theory here but it is still being taught in the Utah education system and, if anything, I would say it’s actually more than the California education system,’ Gloria told Fox News on Tuesday.
‘What’s shocking is Utah is mirroring the education system of California, and I would say it’s probably the most progressive in the Western states when it comes to critical race theory and the school board are not listening to any parents – they just refuse to listen – and that’s what we found in California, which was one of the main reasons we decided to move here.
‘So I’m concerned because it’s creating an environment here in Utah that’s creating more divide and I blame the officials at the top here in Utah,’ Gloria said.
Gloria said she had been homeschooling her 16-year-old son since the seventh grade ‘due to common core and critical race theory in California.’
‘I pulled him out and I was excited to put him in here [in Utah],’ Gloria said.
However, after talking to locals and doing some research, Gloria said she found that teaching of critical race theory was even more prevalent in Utah than it had been in California.
Critical race theory examines the influence of race and racism on America’s laws, politics and culture, taking into consideration issues such as white supremacy and institutionalized racism.
