Boise’s McLean Joins Chicago, Portland Mayors To Endorse Critical Race Theory In Schools

(Redoubt News) Boise Mayor Lauren McLean signed a resolution in support of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in public K-12 education.

McLean has chosen to align herself with mayors from cities that were ravaged and shattered by violent riots during 2020. The resolution is co-sponsored by Ted Wheeler (Portland, OR), Greg Fischer (Louisville, KY), and Lori E. Lightfoot (Chicago, IL).

The resolution, adopted at the United State Conference of Mayors 89th Annual Meeting, states that McLean and the co-sponsors support implementing CRT’s racial discrimination in public school curriculum and programming.
