NBC News reported late Sunday that in an election in Southlake, Texas, which is 30 miles outside of Dallas, opponents of so-called Critical Race Theory scored a big victory.
The outlet reported that “Nine months after officials in the affluent Carroll Independent School District introduced a proposal to combat racial and cultural intolerance in schools, voters delivered a resounding victory Saturday to a slate of school board and City Council candidates who opposed the plan.”
It should be noted that what is being framed as “a proposal to combat racial and cultural intolerance in schools” is a left agenda item known as Critical Race Theory, a radical philosophy that is now being pushed by the Biden administration.

“Candidates in the city of Southlake were split between two camps: those who supported new diversity and inclusion training requirements for Carroll students and teachers and those backed by a political action committee that was formed last year to defeat the plan,” NBC News reported.
Progressives argued that the proposed curriculum and would make students make feel safer and more comfortable in Carroll. Conservatives opponents of the curriculum argued that it would indoctrinate students in far-left ideology and identity politics.
Those arguing on both sides described the election as a “fork in the road” for Southlake.
