Majority of Likely Voters Want Schools Teaching 'Traditional Values,' Poll Shows
Rasmussen Report survey finds most people don't want 'woke' subjects in curriculum
The vast majority of American voters want their children to be taught "traditional values" at school and not "woke" subjects, a new poll has found.
The survey, conducted by Rasmussen Reports, finds most Americans prefer their children's education to be based on traditional teachings.
The survey of 1,000 voters found that 78 percent of respondents believe it is at least "somewhat important" for schools to teach their kids "traditional values of Western Civilization."
Of the 78%, 52 percent said teaching "traditional values" is "very important," according to the Rasmussen Reports survey.
In recent months, the push to include radical-left curriculum, such as CRT, has become a controversial debate.
CRT rewrites much of Western history to suggest that all of the world's problems are based around a battle between the races.
"Critical Race Theory is a practice," said Kimberlé Crenshaw, a founding critical race theorist and a law professor at UCLA and Columbia University, according to CNN.
"It's an approach to grappling with a history of white supremacy that rejects the belief that what's in the past is in the past, and that the laws and systems that grow from that past are detached from it."
As Neon Nettle previously reported, a world-renowned African American theologian spoke out against CRT and Black Lives Matter (BLM).
Dr. Voddie T. Baucham, who currently serves as the dean of theology at African Christian University in Zambia, where he now lives, revealed the CRT and BLM "anti-racism" agenda is actually "all about power."
Dr. Baucham said that when he returns to his native United States, he's alarmed by the Marxist power grab that is being disguised as "racial justice."
Baucham says he's so concerned about America's pathway to "demonic" Marxism that it's compelled him to write a book about the disturbing shift in U.S. society.
He says that every time he returns to his homeland, he sees it has further succumbed to the radical left.
"I’ve come back three or four times a year for speaking tours and it’s always interesting to be an American ex-pat looking back at the U.S.,” Baucham said.
"I’m watching families be divided, churches be divided, institutions and schools and denominations be divided over this thing.
"Being an ex-pat coming back and seeing that; it was just alarming to me.”
