When parents object to “woke schools” teaching “critical race theory,” the standard answer from the educational establishment and progressive politicians is disingenuous, to say the least. “No one can define what ‘woke’ even means,” they say. And “critical race theory is an academic model studied in law schools, not primary or secondary schools.”
So political scientists Eric Kaufmann and Zach Goldberg conducted research for the Manhattan Research to determine if and to what extent school children have been indoctrinated into progressive identity politics. They surveyed 1,500 young adults, aged 18-20, recent products of American schools, and found that virtually all of them have been exposed to these concepts and have been affected by them.
