Quick Glance: 'Battle for America's Classrooms: GOP Targets Race and Identity'
  • In 2021, a wealthy suburban school district in Texas garnered national attention when parents and local conservative activists falsely accused the district of indoctrinating students with Critical Race Theory.

  • This led to Republican figures across the country taking interest and sparked a Christian movement that extended beyond the district's borders to restrict what children are being taught in schools.

  • Mike Hixenbaugh's book 'They Came for the Schools' illustrates how this school district became a model for Republicans nationwide and revealed their ambitions that go well beyond controlling which version of American history enters high school textbooks.

  • The movement to revise American history and the battle over teachings in schools have far-reaching implications for teachers, students, and communities nationwide.

China launches anti-dumping investigation into EU pork imports
Quick Glance: China launches retaliatory anti-dumping probe on European pork
  • China has initiated an anti-dumping investigation into imported pork and its by-products from the European Union, targeting Spain, the Netherlands, France, and Denmark in response to restrictions on its electric vehicle exports.

  • The investigation, announced by China's commerce ministry on Monday, will focus on pork intended for human consumption, including fresh, cold, and frozen whole cuts, as well as pig intestines, bladders, and stomachs.

  • Chinese authorities have previously hinted at potential retaliatory measures through state media, reflecting a shift in EU trade policy towards protectionism due to the impacts of China's production-focused, debt-driven model.

  • European pork producers are allowed to continue exporting to China without tariffs during the investigation, with a completion deadline set for June 17, 2025, extendable by six months if necessary.
