Former Vice President Mike Pence joined the chorus of voices against Critical Race Theory, blasting the race-baiting curriculum as “state sanctioned racism” during remarks at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Thursday.

"Critical race theory teaches children as young as kindergarten to be ashamed of their skin color. It represents a full-throated assault aimed at the heart of the American experiment," Pence said. "It is nothing short of state-sponsored and state-sanctioned racism. Our party must ensure that critical race theory is expelled from our schools, our military, and our public institutions.”

The former VP added that "we must eliminate critical race theory at every level” and "restore the classics to education in our schools.”

Pence also pushed for school choice so parents won’t be force to put their children in public school classrooms that teach left-wing doctrine like CRT.

"The Republican Party in the years ahead must work to make school choice the right of every American family," Pence said to applause.
