Tennessee Republicans Take Critical Race Theory Lessons

NASHVILLE – In the closing days of the legislative session, Republicans at Tennessee House reopened an education committee to curb what public schools will be allowed to teach on the topics of racism and inequality.

Members of the House Education Administration Committee – which had previously closed for the year – returned Monday morning and brought forward legislation to ban schools from teaching lessons about systemic racism, among other things. race and gender issues.

Three Democratic lawmakers – all black – were the only ones to vote against the measure during the commission.

The effort, led in part by Representative John Ragan, R-Oak Ridge, comes as conservative activists across the country have increasingly sounded the alarm over ideas aligned with critical race theory being taught in schools primary and higher education institutions.
