Critical Race Theory Ban Passes Senate Education Committee
The House and Senate Education Committees continue to hold hearings on a series of controversial school policy issues including Critical Race Theory (CRT). Earlier this year, Senator Lana Theis, Republican Committee Chair from Brighton, introduced Senate Bill 460. This bill prohibits the instruction of critical race theory and curriculum such as the 1619 Project and imposes a 5% school aid penalty for districts who are found in violation. Plainly stated, DPSCD would lose state funding for teaching about slavery, Jim Crow and the history of systemic racism in this country. Some Michigan legislators continue to follow a national trend of introducing legislation that roll back civil liberties such as voting rights, LGBTQ rights, women’s reproductive rights, and more.

We must ACT NOW to ensure that we not only protect our school funding, but we must also ensure that school districts are enabled to provide honest and accurate instruction. Our fight for equitable funding and equitable policies in our state government continues on. Raise your voice today! Be heard. Please consider sending a letter to your state legislators or contacting them via telephone.
