Condoleezza Rice shared her thoughts about public schools teaching critical race theory (CRT) to children on ABC's The View.
Rice appeared on Wednesday's episode of The View with co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar, and Sara Haines.
Rice, the 2nd Black U.S. secretary of state in history, said parents ought to have a say in what their children are taught in schools.
She noted that home schooling is increasing in the United States because parents are fed up with the liberal curriculum in schools.
"[Parents] are actually homeschooling [children] in increasing numbers. And I think that's a signal," Rice said.
"First of all, parents ought to be involved in their children's education... I think parents ought to have a say. We used to have parent-teacher conferences; We used to have [Parent-Teacher Association's]. There are lots of ways for parents to be involved, and they should be."
Rice, 66, said CRT was not helpful to Black or white students and that white students were being made to feel guilty for systemic racism in the United States.
"The way we're talking about race is that it either seems so big that somehow white people now have to feel guilty for everything that happened in the past," said Rice.
Rice added that she didn't feel teaching CRT in schools was "productive" to Black or white children.
"I don't think that's very productive or Black people feel disempowered by race. I would like Black kids to be completely empowered to know they are beautiful in their Blackness, but in order to do that, I don't have to make white kids feel bad for being white. So, somehow this is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction."
"We teach the good and we teach the bad of history. But what we don't do is make 7- and 10-year-olds feel that they are somehow bad people because of the color of their skin."
