Bill Up For Committee Vote Would Prevent Honesty In Teaching
The Senate Education Committee is set to vote on bill to prevent honesty in teaching November 29.
The bill (SB411/AB411) would prevent educators from providing age-appropriate, honest and complete history in K-12 schools. The bill is part of a national push against educators teaching honestly about our society in a historical context, including systemic racial inequality and how people have organized and created coalitions across race, class and gender.
