San Diego teachers are required to undergo “white privilege” training, in which they must accept that their supposed unconscious bias is perpetuating racial superstructures, according to leaked documents.
The documents, obtained by independent journalist Christopher F. Rufo, show training sessions with instructors notifying faculty members they will experience “guilty, anger, apathy [and] closed-mindedness.”
The teachers are compelled to acknowledge that they are living on land – i.e., the United States – that was stolen from Native Americans, according to Rufo’s report.
After that, the teachers are told they are racist and “upholding racist ideas, structures, and policies” and must commit to becoming “antiracist” in the classroom.”
The trainers reportedly say that “white people in America hold most of the [power]” and white teachers are “preserved at every level of power.”
Teachers must vow to “confront and examine [their] white privilege,” “acknowledge when [they] feel white fragility,” and “teach others to see their privilege,” according to the documents obtained by Rufo.
Furthermore, teachers are challenged to “confront and examine [their] white privilege and “teach others to see their privilege.”
The school district could not be reached for comment.
