Just last week, Pa. Representatives Barb Gleim (R – Cumberland) and Russ Diamond (R – Lebanon) made the announcement they want to bring legislation forward to ban “Critical Race Theory” from being taught in school.
The two say the legislation would prohibit the teaching, funding, or spreading information of racist and sexist concepts by the state and any political subdivisions, including school districts. This bill, House Bill 1532, is called the Teaching Racial and Universal Equality Act.
“Our legislation makes it clear that no Pennsylvania school district, public post-secondary institution, or state or local government entity shall teach that any race or sex is superior to another, that any individual based on their race or sex is inherently racist or sexist, or that any individual should receive favorable treatment or be discriminated against based on their race or sex,” Gleim said.
