      I cant imagine parenting in this modern world. Educating them, raising them, teaching them how to sort out the current world

        It's really not so bad. You teach them, as best you can, to be good people. Most of the rest figures itself out.

      One question worth asking is: Can a reasonable person disagree? If the answer is yes, then a school probably shouldn't teach it - or should proceed with caution.

      Racism is bad and has affected our history - a reasonable person would not disagree. Teach away.

      BLM policy stance / 'anti-racism' / intersectionality - can a reasonable person disagree - yes. Look at the debates occurring in academia and in the pages of the Atlantic/New York Times etc. And if reasonable people can disagree, then our schools should proceed with caution.
