- After Republicans at the state level have advanced dozens of bills to ban the teaching of critical race theory and other so-called “divisive concepts” in schools, Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, is spearheading a federal effort to get “racist teaching” out of K-12 classrooms.
- Roy on Thursday will introduce the Combating Racist Teaching in Schools Act – called the CRT Act for short – which would block federal funding from elementary or secondary schools that promote “race-based theories” generally attributed to CRT.
- The bill comes in response to reports of schools teaching concepts that Republicans and parents have lambasted as racist.
