Teacher’s union denies ‘woke’ infiltration of classrooms, then vows to defend it

The president of the nation’s second-largest teachers’ union vowed to defend educators who face backlash for teaching critical race theory, hours after denying that the ideology has entered the classroom.
"#CriticalRaceTheory is not taught in K-12 schools," American Federation of Teachers president Randi Weingarten tweeted Tuesday. "The right’s culture warriors are labeling any discussion of race, racism or discrimination as such to try to make it toxic. They’re bullying teachers to try and keep them from teaching the truth."
Later that day, Education Week published an article titled "Teachers' Unions Vow to Defend Members in Critical Race Theory Fight." In the piece, Weingarten said if any educator faces backlash for teaching about race, the union "will have their back."
