The group says the ‘Cultural Humility Self-Reflection’ survey that Ontario teachers are required to fill out is reminiscent of Maoist struggle sessions.

Teachers at a catholic elementary school in Thornhill, Ont., filled out a “Cultural Humility Self-Reflection” survey during a recent professional activity day, says a parent at the school.

The survey, or “self-reflection tool,” outlines how teachers should adopt specific ideas related to race and culture. Those include recognizing the “privilege” of “dominant cultures” and “systemic racism and white supremacy.” The tool urges teachers to adopt these and other ideas related to the disputed ideology of critical race theory.

Critical race theory has various definitions, but is generally described as an intellectual movement that sees institutions as systemically racist and oppressive to people of colour. The theory has Marxist roots and informs many anti-racism initiatives today.
