Critical Race Theory Inspired Content

I purchased the K level materials because I wanted a home school curriculum which was mum with regard to religion and taught unfiltered science without politics. Looking at some of the materials down the line I can't help but wonder if any of this material is inspired by postmodernist concepts, literary theory, or philosophies which are compatible with critical race theory? Are any BLM curriculum or 1619 project concepts or materials included in the material? There are things which are worse than religion.

I know there is a common spin that literally speaking critical race theory is a legal concept not taught outside advanced and specialized university curriculum but this is a gross misrepresentation as seen here. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Browse/Search:critical%20race%20theory# I want to be absolutely certain my child will not be exposed to educational materials which look at the world through a lens of segregation into group membership with group identity.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for reaching out to us with your question about Critical Race Theory. The answer is really quite simple. We empower families to make their own choices regarding how to address current political ideas into their children's education.

Moving Beyond the Page is not a politically motivated organization, and we don't have any agenda beyond providing the best education possible. Our curriculum is neither conservative nor liberal, and it is not a platform for the promotion of any current political or controversial ideas.

If you have additional questions or concerns, please let us know.

Thank you for your thoughtful response. I myself have also been wondering this. This is our first year homeschooling and our first time using this curriculum and so far we have had a wonderful experience with it. I have found that it has given us lots of opportunities for discussion about our beliefs and family values, and I appreciate the way the curriculum leaves this open for discussion.
