The Kentucky State Legislature is in session and will consider hundreds of bills between now and the middle of April when they adjourn. It’s expected that expanding school choice in some way will move forward. This is an issue more parents are engaging. That’s because some public schools have embraced the teaching of the controversial Critical Race Theory (CRT). CRT is a theory that divides Americans based on skin color. Some proponents teach that if you are white, you should feel guilty for your skin tone because of institutional racism. At its core, this is a racist ideology, and such guilting divides us instead of bringing reconciliation between the races. State Reps. Matt Lockett, Jennifer Decker, and Joe Fischer have introduced legislation that would ban the teaching of racist ideology in K-12 public schools.
