1619 Project founder Nikole Hannah-Jones says parents should not decide what is taught in schools, slamming the idea of homeschooling.
Hannah-Jones made the controversial comments to host Chuck Todd on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” Sunday, praising former Democratic governor Terry McAuliffe for being “panned” when he argued “parents should not be telling schools what to teach their children.”
She also took a shot specifically at “white” parents.
“I would say the governor’s race in Virginia was decided based on the success of a right-wing propaganda campaign that told white parents that they needed to fight against their children being indoctrinated as race – as being called racists. But that was a propaganda campaign,” Hannah-Jones said.
She said she is “not a professional educator” herself and “that is not my job” despite wanting her 1619 Project taught in schools across the country as Hannah-Jones slammed homeschooling.
