The Mississippi legislature, taking the bold step that all GOP legislatures should have taken long ago, just banned critical racialism from classrooms in the state.
The bill passed the Senate by a 32-2 vote, but 18 members were absent when the vote took place. The bill was passed by the House of Representatives by 75-43 votes, with three absentees and one present but not voting.
Short but sweet text of the invoice said that no Mississippi school could teach radical ideology, provided that:
1) No public higher education institution, community college/middle school, school district or public school, including charter schools, will instruct or require a student to identify personally accept, accept or abide by any of the following tenants:
(a) Any gender, race, ethnicity, religion or national origin is superior or inferior; or
(b) Such individuals shall be subjected to adverse treatment on the basis of their sex, race, ethnicity, religion or national origin.
(2) No public higher education institution, community college/middle school, school district or public school, including charter schools, shall discriminate or classify students on the basis of race, provided nothing in this subsection shall be construed as prohibiting the collection or reporting of requests for demographic information by such schools or organizations.
(3) No public higher education institution, community college/middle school, school district or public school, including charter schools, will teach a course or unit of study instruct or compel the student to self-identify, accept, or comply with any tenant identified in subsections (1) (a) and (b) of this section.
The peculiarity of the above sections is that, instead of just banning “CRT”, it bans the general teachings of the CRT, describing them so broadly that left-wing “educationalists” cannot circumvent the ban by claiming that they don’t teach. “CRT” which is about the prevalence of racism, or some similar thing, which they tend to do.
By describing the teachings and banning them broadly, the legislature is preventing leftists from doing that and ensuring that CRT is not taught in Mississippi, whatever the leftists may be. try to call it.
And if any Mississippi school should choose to bypass the legislature and try to teach CRT, the bill provides that:
(4) State department of education, any organization under the jurisdiction or regulatory agency of the department of education, school district, charter school, community college/institution, Community College Board Mississippi, the Board of Governors of State Institutions of Higher Education, or a public higher education institution for any purpose may violate the provisions of this section.
The bill is now on the way to the desk of the governor, Tate Reeves. He, a fierce critic of the CRT, is expected to sign the bill and banish radical ideology from all schools, or at least all government-funded schools in the state. his state.
