Dear Senator Scott and Representative Owens,
On behalf of the 2.3 million members of AMAC – Association of Mature American Citizens, I write to offer our support for S. Res. 246 and H. Res. 397, resolutions that express the sense that Critical Race Theory (CRT) should not be taught in K – 12 schools as a way to teach students to judge individuals based on sex, race, ethnicity, or national origin.
AMAC members have expressed their concern over the components of CRT and its infiltration into United States’ primary and secondary schools. They agree with the resolution’s description of CRT as a prejudicial ideological tool rather than an educational tool and are not interested in this curriculum being taught to their children and grandchildren.
AMAC believes that children should be taught the fundamentals of how government works and how to effect change within a civil society. Conversely, some proponents of CRT focus on disruption techniques that ignore these fundamentals and rob our children of essential civics lessons.
Thank you, Senator Scott and Representative Owens, for your resolutions that call for teaching the rule of law and the tenants of our Constitution, defending individuals’ civil rights, and condemning racism in all forms, particularly in our Nation’s schools.
AMAC is pleased to offer our association’s full support for S. Res. 246 and H. Res. 397.
President, AMAC Action
