It's teachers teaching kids the reality of socio-eonomic factors (along with how they intersect with ethinicity) that they really want to stop (they call such teaching 'marxism' and want to ban that too). If it's up to them they'd just be teaching us it's all about our personal responsibility, about the 'great people' in history and how empire was good actually. If we go along with their reactionary bullshit in this case (albeit for clever class-related reasons, or just to win votes from bigots) we'd be the fools imv - why let these kunts set our agenda? However much i agree with the primary importance of class/wealth in society, it's not a zero-sum game - we can walk and chew gum - we don't have to talk about these subjects in the same class-denying way as yer hilary clintons might, we fcuking wrest the topics back off these bastards and tell the complex messy truth of it.
The idea that white privilege doesn't exist is ludicrous imv - eg as a poor white person i have the privilege of not being quite as likely to be pulled by the pigs as a black person of the same income. (i still get pulled because my scruffy clothes and vehicle, more than a richer white person, so rich person's privilege is a large factor but that doesn't cancel out the other one (unless you're proper rich)) Also, i'm just much more likely to be poor in the first place if i'm not white, so those disadvantages apply even more. Now i would argue probaly like you lot that these disadvantages ultimately derive from class relations and structures eg from slavery, but it's no comfort to a black person (i guess) that their disadvantage derived from the structures of society 200 years ago - the reality now is the reality now. Also it's not like all bigotry can be blamed on class.
