Teachers in California’s Santa Clara county were reportedly instructed last year to hide from students’ parents their “ethnic studies” teaching materials, which describe the United States as a settler colonialist regime responsible for genocide and white supremacy.
In November 2020, Santa Clara County’s Office of Education held a training for teachers to get a hold of the district’s “Ethnic Studies Initiative.” According to slides obtained and posted to Twitter by City Journal reporter Christopher Rufo, the training session began with a “land acknowledgment” claiming that the county and its public schools are all built on land illegitimately taken away from Native American occupants.
“We acknowledge that Santa Clara county and our schools occupy the unceded territory of the Muwekma Ohlone Nation, the sovereign nation and original people of the skies, land, and waters where we work and learn,” the slide reads.
The training session then features a presentation by Jorge Pacheco, the president of the California Latino School Board Association and an adviser for the state’s controversial Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum. Pacheco, according to Rufo’s transcript, explained that what the teachers were being prepared to teach was based on the work of Paulo Freire, a Brazilian Marxist known for inventing the term, “pedagogy of the oppressed.”

Avril Haines, the director of national intelligence, told lawmakers on Thursday that the intelligence community has seen “indications” that China is attempting to influence the World Health Organization’s assessment about the origins of the coronavirus.
“We’ve certainly seen indications that China is trying to influence the World Health Organization’s efforts in this area,” Haines told Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick during a House Intelligence Committee hearing.
Fitzpatrick, a Republican, had asked Haines whether the intelligence community has seen any “covert” link between WHO and China.
Haines’ remarks are likely to renew skepticism of the relationship between the WHO and Chinese government. The WHO has been accused of placating Beijing and downplaying a series of missteps early on in the pandemic.
