“The Texas Senate voted along party lines to limit how public school teachers handle discussions of race and racism in the classroom. House Bill 3979 was spawned by Republican distrust of ‘critical race theory,’ which explores how racism shaped America… [As a result] teachers who discuss current events or controversial issues of public policy would be required to ‘explore that topic from diverse and contending perspectives without giving deference to any one perspective,’ according to the bill.” — Austin American-Statesman, 5/24/21.
