FIRST ON FOX Republicans demand more information from President Biden’s Department of Education in light of reports that blue states are spending billions of taxpayer money from the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief program to promote core tenets of Critical Race Theory (CRT), in public schools.

The Democratic Party viewed the American Rescue Plan (ARP), which was passed by Democrats in March 2021 with no Republican support, as necessary for schools to reopen during the COVID-19 epidemic. Fox News Digital reported April that the law provided more than $122 billion to the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund, which was used by multiple states to implement “implicit racism” and “antiracism” programs.

The Republicans wrote Tuesday to Miguel Cardona, Education Secretary, to say they are investigating the “misuse of COVID-19 relief funds intended for virus mitigation and safe reopening schools.

The letter was signed by Republican Rep. James Comer and Republican Rep. Virginia Foxx. They are both ranking members of the Committee on Oversight and Reform.
