Tony Kinnett joins Moment of Truth to talk CRT in education, wokeness in public schools, COVID's impact on students, the problem with "school choice" as a singular solution, and more.
In Today’s episode of “Moment of Truth,” Saurabh sits down with Tony Kinnett, a former science teacher and curriculum lead for Indianapolis Public Schools and Executive Director of Chalkboard Review, to discuss the rotten state of America’s public school system, how racist ideas like CRT are being taught and parents deliberately deceived about the curriculum, and the negative impact this has on students and our nation writ large.
Tony Kinnett is the Co-Founder & Executive Director of “The Chalkboard Review,” a site about education commentary advancing the belief that intellectual diversity–left, right, and center–benefits American education. He also serves as the Executive Director of Choice Media TV, a non-profit K-12 education news service chronicling what’s happening every day in our nation’s schools. Tony previously served as an Indiana school administrator. He went viral for explaining how critical race theory is covertly taught in schools — like “social snake oil schemes” — and was immediately placed on leave, had his email access cut and was banned from entering school buildings. Tony’s video clip exposing the Indianapolis school system for lying about CRT being taught has now been viewed more than 500,000 times.
