Oklahoma State Senators Introduce Bill To Ban Critical Race Theory From Public Schools And Universities


Several Oklahoma State senators have introduced a bill that would ban Critical Race Theory and similar beliefs from being required teaching and training in public schools and universities. State Sens. David Bullard, Nathan Dahm, Shane Jett, and Warren Hamilton introduced a bill that would prohibit schools to require teachers, faculty, staff, or enrolled students to “engage in any form of mandatory gender or sexual diversity training or counseling” or any “orientation or requirement that presents any form of race or sex stereotyping or a bias on the basis of race or sex.” The bill would require the State Board of Education to incorporate these rules and get legislative approval before adopting them. In an interview with The Daily Wire, State Sen. Shane Jett said he and his fellow senators didn’t specifically say they were prohibiting “Critical Race Theory” because those who promote the concepts would “just change the title and still try to teach those principles that are embedded in critical race theory.”
