Apparently not everyone working at Stuff is a leftist bimbo with their mind in a political strait jacket. Or maybe they are and they just didn’t read the item. Whatever, the person responsible for publishing some truth on Critical Race Theory in NZ schools is in trouble. 

Stuff published an article by a Dr Paul Crowhurst, who is the Principal at Papatoetoe East Primary School in Auckland. The article was very critical of the “Unteach Racism” program and said it was difficult for teachers to instruct their pupils in such complex and subjective issues when it was almost impossible to teach them algebra. Mr Crowhurst finished off the article by saying-

“We are going to miss all that we have achieved as a nation, while descending into a state of introspection that encourages people to resent one another. Young people in Aotearoa are living in a less segregated, more affluent, more culturally aware society than ever before. Our teachers should be motivating our rangatahi of all cultural backgrounds by focusing on our progress and the many reasons young people of all racial groups can realise their potential in our wonderful country.”

Which is just about the first bit of truth Stuff have published in a long time, but of course they had to spoil it. The article was published at 4 am on 14 June. Soon after, this notice appeared below the article–
