The Biden administration has admitted the Department of Education made an “error” after Fox News revealed that the DOE promoted a radical handbook from the Abolitionist Teaching Network as part of its COVID-19 school reopening guidance. The  Fox News report added that the ATN instructs teachers to “disrupt whiteness” and that an ATN founder sees it as her mission to “trouble [white teachers’] internalized White supremacy and anti-Blackness.”

The ATN handbook, titled “Guide for Racial Justice & Abolitionist Social and Emotional Learning,” is linked in the Biden administration’s Department of Education “Ed COVID-19 Handbook” which is designed to guide teachers in “reopening safely and meeting all students’ needs.”

The guide promotes the “historic American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP),” and provides “resources” to schools looking to spend the $122 billion in ARPA funds earmarked for public schools to help correct the “disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on students of color, students from low-income backgrounds, students with disabilities, English learners, students who are migratory, students experiencing homelessness, students in correctional facilities, and students in foster care”

Part of that mission, it seems, is to introduce teachers to radical educational materials, including the guide for “abolitionist teachers,” whom the handbook defines as educators looking to “[b]uild a school culture that engages in healing and advocacy.” That mission, the ART says, “requires a commitment to learning from students, families, and educators who disrupt Whiteness and other forms of oppression.”

“Abolitionist Teaching Network’s mission is to develop and support those in the struggle for educational freedom utilizing the intellectual work and direct action of Abolitionists in many forms,” the group’s website states, per Fox News. “But in the materials referenced by the Department of Education, the group outlines how ‘Abolitionist Teachers’ should guide students toward ‘Abolitionist’ social and emotional learning.”
