Democrat-led states across the U.S. are reportedly using billions of dollars from President Biden’s $1.90 trillion COVID-19 relief bill to push critical race theory (CRT) in public schools.

A research organization called One Nation reports more than a dozen U.S. states have been part of this effort to use COVID relief funds to teach CRT.

Fox News reports it has verified the facts in the One Nation report. The funds come from the March 2021 American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act which Democrats billed as a necessity for reopening schools during the pandemic. The law provided over $122 billion for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER), which helped multiple states implement “implicit bias” and “anti-racism” training, among other programs, according to the research from One Nation.

The U.S. Department of Education published a report in August of last year offering suggestions of how states could use ARP funds to address the impact of lost instructional time on students.

The report recommended that states use the funding to “build trust with families to support in-person learning” by communicating frequently with families, implementing universal indoor masking, providing access to vaccinations, and other measures, including addressing the “reasons families of color have cited for not returning to in-person learning,” such as “fears of xenophobic and racist harassment.”
