Texas Senate passes bill restricting critical race theory curriculum

The Texas Senate passed a bill on Saturday that would stop schools and other agencies from teaching concepts related to critical race theory.

House Bill 3979 says in part that teachers may not be “compelled to discuss a particular current event or widely debated and currently controversial issue of public policy or social affairs.”

Without mentioning critical race theory by name, the bill added those who teach about social events “shall, to the best of the teacher’s ability, strive to explore the topic from diverse and contending perspectives without giving deference to any one perspective.”

The bill also requires teachers to “not require or make part of a course” the concepts that “one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex,” that “an individual, by virtue of the individual’s race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously,” and that meritocracy and work ethic “are racist or sexist or were created by members of a particular race to oppress members of another race,” according to the legislation reported by the Washington Examiner.

To date, five states have passed policies related to critical race theory. Many others are considering similar measures.

The bill now heads to Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk for his signature. He is expected to sign HB3979 into law.

The Texas Senate has become one of several states to join push back to critical race theory as part of public education. The controversial theory has become an important discussion as the nation faces several high-profile race-related issues in recent months.

I get paid over $190 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 15k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

Teachers who refuse to teach Critical Race Theory are heros, good Americans, and actually love their students.

CRT is racist and just want to destroy this country.

I am making $60,000 a week working from home. My $575.00 computer has paid for itself a thousand times over. I reckon I should think about replacing it because, it is 18 years old and still going.

They restricted it? What does that mean? Does it mean they can still teach parts of it? If that’s what it means then they didn’t go far enough they need to outright ban it and make it a criminal offense to ever teach it.

CRT only appeals to politicians and far-out voters. I’m an old man and have worked with, and been friends with, people from many countries and different races and religions. I don’t judge a person on the color of their skin, they way they look, or the way they talk. I judge people by they behave and how they treat other people. I do dislike and avoid some folks who don’t want to conform to what I consider normalcy.

As long as it’s allowed at all a lot of teachers are going to find ways to push it as far as they can, it should not be in schools, it’s harmful to children, they should not have their childhood destroyed by listening to teachers spew hate and shame. these teachers will not stop, if you give them an inch, they will take advantage.
