TSR Education: While discussions on critical racial theories have been at the forefront of education, an initiative in Texas shocked many families and educators. The Texas Senate passed a bill that would remove the requirement to teach the Ku Klux Klan’s overall history of white supremacy to be “morally wrong,” and other lessons. Hill report.
The bill has now been submitted to the House of Representatives, and the Republican-led Senate passed 18 votes to 4. However, the Ku Klux Klan issue is not the only detail that people pay attention to.
The bill also abolished learning from Martin Luther King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech, the work of United Farm Worker Leader Cesar Chavez, Susan B. Anthony’s writings on the women’s suffrage movement, and the Americas The requirements of aboriginal history. Huffington Post.
In other words, the bill removes most references to people of color and women from the curriculum required by the state.
The news of the passage of the bill aroused anger on social media on Tuesday, leading the Ku Klux Klan to trend.
Many people called for legislators who voted for the bill.
Political commentator Chris Hahn said on Twitter: “If calling the KKK is morally wrong and is an excessive bridge for your party, then it’s time to leave it.”
Others targeted Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
“Greg Abbott is trying to erase MLK Jr., Cesar Chavez, and Susan B. Anthony from the Texas curriculum and reshape KKK as good people. This is an attack on history and must be stopped,” MSNBC political analyst Julian Castro wrote on Twitter.
People are also worried that the House of Representatives is led by the Republican Party, but due to protests led by the Democratic Party, it currently lacks the quorum required to vote on the bill.
