The 2024 Republican State Pre-Primary Convention & State Central Committee Meeting—Register HERE.



Albuquerque, September 30—The Republican Party of New Mexico is urging local school boards and the public to oppose the Public Education Department’s proposed social studies curricula that contain Critical Race Theory teachings and a bias towards progressive/liberal themes. 
Teaching the concepts of CRT is wrong on a number of fronts:Government should not be indoctrinating students.Government should not bring politics in the classroom.CRT teaches K-12 students that our country is bad. That should not be in our classrooms.  Our country has made mistakes, but generations of people from every nation on earth clamoring to get into our country testify that America offers hope to all. 
It is apparent that those who are developing these scholastic changes for New Mexico schools are coming from a left-leaning think tank.
Public comment is under way until mid-November.
If these suggested social studies standards are accepted, it could mean that revisionist history and/or Critical Race Theory will become an integral part of student learning in New Mexico.
RPNM is calling on school boards, local leaders, lawmakers and constituents to stand up against this endeavor, which is nothing less than implementing revisionist history into New Mexico schools.
“CRT and such revisionist history is dangerous, divisive and an un-American ideology that now threatens to be a part of the New Mexico classroom experience,” said Stephanie Kennedy, Region Dir. of the New Mexico Federation of Republican Women and former RPNM CD-1 Vice Chair. “This has become a leftist agenda across the country–to damage the American education system and our way of life. Democrats and teachers union allies are scheming to indoctrinate every K-12 student in the country with this wrong, far-left, and racist version of history. It’s scary that this is happening, and it’s even more frightening that’s the proposal is happening here in New Mexico.”
The Republican Party of New Mexico (RPNM) advances the ideals of individual liberties for the advancement of its citizens and the greater prosperity of our communities throughout New Mexico. Led by an Executive Board and its Chairman, former NM Congressman Steve Pearce, RPNM serves all New Mexicans via its headquarters in Albuquerque and can be contacted at (505) 298-3662.

    Why are Republicans afraid of historical facts? Your arguments against teaching historical facts are weak. All nations have “good” and “bad” history. We must not be afraid to teach the good and the bad. Hopefully we can learn from our nation’s mistakes. We should not sanitize history as you advocate.
