As Iowa moved to ban the teaching of critical race theory, a state-run education support agency held workshops for teachers about the controversial topic that included a graphic that listed former President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” as an example of “covert white supremacy,” according to a report. Gov. Kim Reynolds​, a Republican,​ signed a law prohibiting the teaching of critical race theory in schools earlier this mont​h, calling the theory “indoctrination not education,” and the ban will take effect on July 1.​ But leaked documents show an Area Education Agency in the state was advising teachers on “antiracism” and created a presentation that cited the authors of critical race theory Robin DiAngelo and Ibram X. Kendi, Fox News reported on Wednesday.​ The Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency, one of nine such groups in Iowa that advise public schools and some private schools, ​prepared presentations in April and May titled “MBAEA Equity Department Meetings: Anti-racism.”
