CA School District Enlists ‘Black Lives Matter Task Force” to Teach Woke Curriculum to Grades 7-12


The Daily Caller News Foundation obtained a curriculum memo from a California school district detailing lesson plans designed by its Black Lives Matter (BLM) Task Force to teach 7th graders and up about their implicit bias during Black History Month.

According to the Daily Caller, the Anaheim Union High School District (AUHSD) is planning to address issues concerning "racial justice" by mandating grades seven through 12 teachers to teach curriculum created by the schools' BLM Task Force, which is committed to creating equity for African American students and staff within the district.

"In an effort to bring the concepts of racial justice to the forefront of your education during Black History Month, the BLM Task Force created a lesson for all 7th graders to help you explore and think critically regarding concepts of race, racism, and racial equity," the curriculum detailed.

The curriculum noted that while the topic "may feel sensitive for some" it is a necessary part of "Civic Engagement that we value in the AUHSD."

According to a resolution obtained by the Daily Caller, the mandated lesson this year comes as part of a resolution approved by the School Board three years ago, requiring teachers to give students the teaching plans created by the BLM Task Force or assign them as homework which began in early February and finished in early March.

Seventh grade science teachers give lessons that "do not judge a book by its cover," which teaches students about "implicit bias" and how their own "implicit biases affect others." The teaching plans suggest that students ages 11 and up should be "mindful" of their implicit biases.

Ninth grade students are mandated to learn the "school to prison pipeline" social justice teaching plan that explains the "historical disadvantages" minorities face using data on black incarceration, school suspension, and expulsion rates. Tenth graders taking English are ordered to discuss the "daily effects of white privilege," where students are asked to reflect on their own privilege and taught how to use their power to help individuals "without a voice."

The curriculum notes that students in 11th and 12th grades receive "stay woke" lessons, teaching them how their implicit biases are formed and can make them affect others in positive or negative ways. Additionally, they must complete a session on systemic racism, showing them data on how a "generation of systemic racism" has led to "educational and economic disparities."

"This lesson is designed to help you explore and think critically about concepts such as race, racism, and racial equity, which can be a challenging topic," the curriculum outlines. "Inappropriate comments or remarks will be identified for correction."

At the very end of the session, students are motivated to sign up for Black History Month events promoted by the Anaheim Union High School District (AUHSD) to earn community service hours and credit for events such as the "black history parade" and the Black History Month celebration.

Speaking to the Daily Caller, Wenyuan Wu, executive director of Californians for Equal Rights Foundation, a nonprofit Californian-based organization centered on pushing back legislative attempts to reinstitute racial and gender preferences in government programs, said that last year California Smarter Balanced test results showed only "23% of students in the Anaheim Union High School District could do math at the grade level and the English proficiency level was 43%."

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, parents and education groups throughout America have sounded the alarm on the woke-centered curriculum in American schools, indoctrinating children K-12 in a Marxist view of America and the country's "evil history."
