Since The New York Times released its 1619 Project in 2019, schools have been quick to adopt the curriculum. Tensions over race and racism over the past year and half have only added to the number of schools using the curriculum, says Charles Love, host of the “Cut the Bull” podcast and executive director of the nonprofit Seeking Educational Excellence.
While Americans are “arguing … about [critical race theory], what’s the definition, what does it really mean, [the] 1619 [Project] is a behemoth, and it’s growing,” Love warns.
Many schools are choosing to adopt aspects of the 1619 Project curriculum because “it’s easy,” Love says, adding that teachers need to be presented with better education options, such as the 1776 Unites curriculum.
Love joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain the ways in which the woke education agenda is a threat to the American experiment and to discuss his forthcoming book, “Race Crazy: BLM, 1619, and the Progressive Racism Movement.”
