This ought to be the dominant rule on teaching “white privilege.”
We need to order some of this attitude from across the Pond:
The British government has instructed schools not to “teach contested theories and opinions as fact,” including contested views about so-called “white privilege.”
The government on Thursday published its response to a report from the UK Parliament’s Education Select Committee, which said that the use of terms such as “white privilege” may be one of the reasons white working-class pupils are persistently falling behind.
In a report published in June, the committee said that its 14-month inquiry on left-behind white pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds had shown that “poor white pupils are far from ‘privileged’ in education.”
