Education Committees to Take Up Bills Banning the Teaching of Race or Sex Stereotypes

By John Forester | August 5, 2021

From WisPolitics.com …

The Legislature’s education committees have scheduled a joint hearing next week to take testimony on bills Republican sponsors say would ban critical race theory in K-12 schools by prohibiting the teaching of race or sex stereotypes.

Critical race theory is often defined as a concept that institutions in the United States are inherently racist as they function and therefore maintain racial inequalities.

Along with banning teaching race or sex stereotyping, the legislation would prohibit instruction or training that one race or sex is inherently superior to another or that an individual bears responsibility for acts committed in the past by others of the same race or sex.

The committees also plan to take testimony Wednesday on legislation that would require school boards to post online information on learning materials used in pupil instruction.
