U.K. government says anti-racist education is illegal

Yeah, that's what I said. Tell me if there's a more benevolent way to understand this story:

Teaching white privilege as uncontested fact is illegal, minister says. Kemi Badenoch tells Commons debate on Black History Month that schools must offer opposing views


Schools which teach pupils that “white privilege” is an uncontested fact are breaking the law, the women and equalities minister has said.

Addressing MPs during a Commons debate on Black History Month, Kemi Badenoch said the government does not want children being taught about “white privilege and their inherited racial guilt”.

“Any school which teaches these elements of political race theory as fact, or which promotes partisan political views such as defunding the police without offering a balanced treatment of opposing views, is breaking the law,” she said.

She added that schools have a statutory duty to remain politically impartial and should not openly support “the anti-capitalist Black Lives Matter group”.
