Joe Biden’s choice for Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, the current Connecticut commissioner of education, helped oversee curricula for high school students to be implemented in fall 2022 that is influenced by “critical race theory.”
As The Washington Free Beacon noted, Connecticut requires a course in African-American, Puerto Rican and Latino studies. The Connecticut Mirror reported on December 2:
Connecticut high schools will now be required to offer a course in African American, Black, Latino and Puerto Rican studies after the state Board of Education unanimously approved its implementation on Wednesday. The new curriculum will be offered as a full-year elective for students, but the board is hoping that with enough momentum, it could expand and be required for all students.
