Website Launched to Track Critical Race Theory Teaching in Higher Education

Sam Dorman, Fox News, February 2, 2021

A newly-launched website features a free database with information on critical race theory (CRT) curricula and training in higher education – adding to the already-growing effort to track how the controversial ideology is permeating U.S. institutions.

William Jacobson, the Cornell law professor who founded the conservative-leaning site “Legal Insurrection,” created the database as a comprehensive resource to “empower” American parents and students as the ideology makes its way into classrooms across the country.

Jacobson told Fox News on Tuesday: “The website is a resource for parents and students who no longer can assume they will be left alone … the entire ideology of CRT and ‘anti-racist’ training is that ‘silence is violence.'”

He added: “As we head into college application and selection season, we need to get parents, in particular, to focus on CRT that will be forced on their kids.”

Launched over the weekend, is the product of a six-month effort at Legal Insurrection and currently includes information on 200 colleges and universities, Jacobson said. {snip} The homepage currently features a map that allows visitors to search for CRT incidents by state.

“People need to understand that Higher Ed is the source of the problem,” Jacobson told Fox News. “It provides the ideological mothers’ milk for activists, and trains the people who then go onto jobs in government and primary/secondary education, and the ‘journalists’ who push this coverage.”
