"Critical Race Theory" bill veto disappoints advocates

 Senator Andre Jacque does not think your kids should have to learn about systemic racism or sexism in the classroom despite Governor Tony Evers’ vetoing a ban on the practice on Friday. The Republican-backed bill would have disallowed Wisconsin public schools from teaching students and training employees the concepts many have associated with “critical race theory.” The Democratic governor said he vetoed the measure because it would restrict schools from teaching topics like the Civil War and the civil rights movement with “honest, complete facts.”  Jacque says no one should have to undergo the humiliation of being told they are inferior to someone else.

While the National Education Association has said it is appropriate to be included in the K-12 curriculum, school districts in Door and Kewaunee said there are no plans to introduce the concepts to their students. Last year, Greg Jones from the NAACP Dane County Branch said although it is hard to teach some historical topics without mentioning racism or sexism, CRT is more of a graduate studies course and not something for the K-12 classroom.
