Biden Ties Trump’s Lowest Approval Rating – How Much Lower Will He Go?

When asked what values schools should teach, independent thinking and respect for people of different races tied at 69%. More than two-thirds balked at race-based admissions to college, and less than half trust schools to teach about racism. Perhaps this is because of videos like this one from Accuracy in Media. Teaching critical race theory, also known as CRT, is banned in Idaho. Here is Cindy Dion, a District Instructional Support Specialist in Nampa, Idaho explaining how educators get around the ban:
BREAKING: Idaho banned critical race theory, but schools are teaching it anyway.
"Changed the label, same stuff."
"Social-emotional learning, We can't say that here anymore. It's mental health."

Only 8% said schools should not teach patriotism. Despite feeling schools have gotten off on the wrong track, more than two-thirds of respondents say they trust educators in public schools to ensure books in school libraries are appropriate. Unlike other polls where most Americans support education dollars following the child, the Selzer poll showed minority support when pollsters asked if taxpayer dollars should be used at religious schools. Nearly one-third strongly objected when the pollster framed the question that way.
