IPA Research Reveals Full Scale Of Activism In New Radical Curriculum - Featured image

A Freedom of Information request from the Institute of Public Affairs finds that an activist advisory group was consulted on every learning area in the proposed new National Curriculum, including physical education.

This Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Group, with members who think that Australia was founded on white supremacy and the teaching of maths is systemically racist, are assisting the National Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority to include Indigenous themes in the new radical National Curriculum.

Dr Bella d’Abrera, Director of the Foundations of Western Civilisation Program at the Institute of Public Affairs said:

“ACARA seems to have consulted everyone on this radical new national curriculum except for the most important stakeholder, parents.”

“The activists writing our radical new national curriculum believe while children are playing on the monkey bars, they should be pondering how they are oppressing and discriminating against Indigenous Australians.”

The Daily Telegraph covered the story.

Dr Bella d’Abrera also wrote about ACARA embedding Critical Race Theory into the Physical Education syllabus recently for The Daily Telegraph.
