Members of the Newnan-based Frontline Policy Action have announced their legislative priorities for the 2022 session of the Georgia General Assembly, and those policies include fighting what they call “radical indoctrination in the classroom.”
Frontline Policy President Cole Muzio said he and members of his group want state legislators to ban Critical Race Theory (CRT) from local curriculums.
“CRT is in Georgia, and it doesn’t always go by that label. CRT is an agenda aimed to discriminate amongst kids and makes people feel differently based on their race. It’s an archaic ideology that takes us back decades, and it is present in Georgia. We need to ban it,” Muzio told The Georgia Star News on Wednesday.
“The governor has taken good action. The state school board has taken good action. We need to make sure it never sees the light of day because it is a divisive and wrong ideology that takes direct aim at unity.”
In an emailed press release, Frontline Policy officials said they also want legislation that prohibits biological males from competing in female-only sports. They also want legislation that would prohibit sex education in elementary schools and other legislation that protects teachers and coaches of faith. Frontline Policy members also said they want public schools to provide more transparency so that parents know more about their children’s curriculums.
Frontline Policy members also said they want to close a loophole that they said allows obscene materials in school libraries.
Frontline Policy Action, according to its website, is a Christian organization that holds the Bible as “the inerrant Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind.”
Members of the Georgia Board of Education voted in June to formally oppose teaching CRT in the state’s K-12 classrooms.
Board members, according to their resolution, described beliefs such as CRT as “concepts that impute fault, blame, a tendency to oppress others, or the need to feel guilt or anguish to persons solely because of their race or sex.”
Governor Brian Kemp at the time called CRT dangerous and anti-American and said it has no place in Georgia classrooms.
