South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has signed an executive order to ban the teaching of Critical Race Theory in all Rushmore State public school classrooms for grades K-12; she’s taking aim at ““Inherently divisive concepts.”
“Political indoctrination has no place in our classrooms,” said Governor Noem. “Our children will not be taught that they are racists or that they are victims, and they will not be compelled to feel responsible for the mistakes of their ancestors. We will guarantee that our students learn America’s true and honest history – that includes both our triumphs and our mistakes.”
This new order is in addition to a previous law the Governor signed, banning mandatory CRT training at the collegiate level.
