Opponents say critical race theory ban is ‘anti-truth’

Critical Race Theory Cropped

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – A divided state school board has cemented rules that ban so-called critical race theory teachings from K-12 classrooms.

News outlets reported that the Alabama State Board of Education on Thursday voted 7-2 to put the previously approved resolution in the state administrative code.

The decision drew sharp criticism from opponents who said the language will limit honest conversations and lessons about history and race.

The rule bans concepts that impute fault, blame, a tendency to oppress others, or the need to feel guilt or anguish to persons solely because of their race or sex.
