Pennsylvania ‘Antiracism’ Training Calls Woman Who Killed Cop a ‘Civil Rights Activist’

The Center for Black Educator Development will be providing Pennsylvania educators with “antiracism” guides. The material quotes Asatta Shakur, who killed a state trooper in 1973 and later escaped from prison, and calls her a “civil rights activist.” Under the guidance, teachers will be asked to “interrogate their biases and recognize inequality in schools and school systems.”

From National File:

The new standards mark the first time that Pennsylvania will be instituting what is referred to as “culturally-relevant and sustaining education” guidelines as part of its mandatory teacher preparation programs.


Sharif El-Mekki claims that the standards will benefit “all” students, but a 69-page document titled “The Anti-Racist Guide to Teacher Retention” is littered with black nationalist sentiments, repeatedly stresses the need to foster a “student to activist” pipeline in schools and praises fugitive cop killer Asatta Shakur.


Shakur was a member of the Black Liberation Army, which the FBI describes as “one of the most violent militant organizations of the 1970s.”
