(FOX News, 10/13/21) Laura Ingraham highlighted Tuesday a CNN “point-counterpoint” debate on critical race theory, and diversity, equity and inclusion in public schools. Ingraham centered her Angle monologue on a CNN “New Day” segment about whether parents should have a say in what their children are taught in schools. “Every once in a while, an on-air exchange slips through the cracks on one of the other cable networks that is worth watching. Such was the case this morning on CNN of all places,” said Ingraham. Virginia parent and author Asra Nomani argued schools are “radicalizing” students with critical race theory, often described as Diversity Equity & Inclusion (DEI) programs.
“Schools should be teaching reading, writing arithmetic,” she explained on CNN. The Vice President of Parents Defending Education brought examples of books used to teach young children that have generated concern from parents. Nomani defined a direct correlation in the ideas presented in these resources lead to “dangerous principles.”
