Tennessee bans critical race theory in schools
State legislators prohibited curriculum and materials that include or promote that “one race or sex is inherently superior,” “an individual by virtue of the individual’s race or sex is inherently privileged, racist or oppressive” and or “an individual should be discriminated against.”
The bill also prohibits the teaching of concepts like “moral character is determined by the individual’s race or sex” and “an individual, by virtue of their race or sex bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex.”
Republicans hold the majority in both houses of the Tennessee State Legislature.
