HB322 & HB327: Banning Critical Race Theory
HB322 & HB327 will ban the teaching of certain topics surrounding race, gender, and sex in Ohio schools. Both bills, placed in the State and Local Government Committee, have similar language and goals: to limit teacher’s and school district’s ability to teach about America’s complicated past in k-12 schools.
These bills are apart of a nationwide effort to whitewash history and remove important conversations such as race and gender from the classroom without input from teachers, staff members, or administrators and threatening to take away valuable state education funding if they do not comply.
