Leo Terrell Tears Up ‘Awake’ California School Districts Banning Chess: No More ‘Critical Racial Nonsense’

Fox News contributor Leo Terrell, civil rights attorney and former teacher, has sounded “awake” California school districts that have decided to ban chess. Terrell called the decision an insult and “racist”.

School boards, which have banned “D” and “F” grades, say it will help black, Latino and low-income students.

Terrell, however, believes the move will devalue education and is an insult to students of color.

“This awakened democratic left culture has fundamentally destroyed any incentive to do well,” he said on Fox & Friends on Tuesday.

“And the insult is that it’s directed at black people and brown kids – that we need special help. It’s insulting.”

Terrell called on parents to remove their children from public schools as a result of the new initiative which he says is an expansion of critical teaching of racial theory.

“It targets children based on the color of their skin. It’s racist, and I find it offensive.”

He said the ban on failing grades discourages students and teachers from working so hard.

“This is nothing more than a back door pleasing to public school unions,” he said.

Teacher unions have faced overwhelming backlash over the past year for trying to stop parents from influencing their children’s education and for pushing things like critical race theory.

Terrell said the decision to ban failing grades would only give students a false sense of security.

“When the rubber hits the road, and when they go to college, to medical school, to law school? They won’t be able to compete,” he said.

“Smart parents are going to take their kids out of public school, go to private school, and they are going to face the best and the brightest.”

He warned that if schools do not allow students to fail, it could harm them in the future.

“It’s a prescription for failure later in their career.”
