How to use regressive in a sentence?

  1. Ed Murray:

  2. Ian Prior:

    Loudoun County's continued implementation of critical race theory in the school system is regressive, divisive, and destructive. It has turned this county into a national punchline, the fact that they now want to spend over $6 million a year to continue to push this morally bankrupt ideologyon teachers and students is an absolute abomination. It is becoming clearer every day that someone is making a fortune on the backs of Loudoun County taxpayers and it is time for LCPS [Loudoun County Public Schools]to start communicating with parents and explain itself with more than misleading press releases from the Interim Superintendent.

  3. Froyo Tam:

    After Y2K, there was a bit of a hangover, after an era of futurism, things got more regressive and hedonistic. Nihilistic, even. It was an era of McBling and McMansions and consumerism driven by the notion we would have endless prosperity. That ended with the great recession in 2008 and we were a bit left in the wind.

  4. Carol Swain:

    BLM does not want young Black men and women to know the importance of individual choice in determining how an encounter with police will end. Instead of modeling lawful behavior, BLM and progressive politicians in Congress seem to hold the regressive belief that Black people are always right even when they are clearly wrong, many progressives — White and Black — hold a dangerous belief that black people are justified in challenging and disobeying lawful police orders. This encourages a dangerous double standard that erodes the rule of law and contributes to more criminal behavior.

  5. Rupert Abbott:

    Indonesia's new government took office on the back of promises to improve respect for human rights, but carrying out these executions would be a regressive move.
