ELA K-2 New Textbooks
Fulton County School District, Georgia
In Nov 2020, I learned that our district, Fulton County schools, would be adopting new textbooks for ELA K-2. Having been a member of a new Facebook group No Left Turn in Education, I'd been reading posts for several months and recalled one post indicating to be mindful of new textbooks as new radical ideology could turn up in the new books. My radar was on, so in Jan 2021 I reviewed in detail the textbooks available for public review. I found that indeed tenets of CRT were included in the books. I sent emails to the Chief Academic Officer, School Board members and the Superintendent. At the end of the review period, the Superintendent determined that the textbook adoption would be postponed. While this is likely to raise its head again, we have a WIN for now!
