Oklahoma Gov Kevin Stitt
The Associated Press reports that Oklahoma will prohibit public school teachers from teaching certain concepts of race and racism under a bill signed into law by Gov. Kevin Stitt. The bill prohibits the teaching of the so-called “critical race theory.” The measure also prevents colleges and universities from requiring students to undergo training on gender or sexual diversity. Concepts that would be prohibited are that individuals are inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously. Stitt said nothing in the bill would prevent or discourage “honest and tough conversations about our past” in public schools.
