(The Center Square) – The North Carolina Senate is considering a bill that will prohibit K-12 schools from promoting certain ideologies about racism and discrimination.
The legislation stems from the partisan disagreement over how the history of racism in American should be taught in schools.
Republicans said the bill would limit “indoctrination” of critical race theory. Democrats said it would hide the truth about racism.
“I oppose it, and I will combat it with everything that I have because I believe the doctrine undoes the framework that produced the most successful ongoing experiment in self-government in the history of mankind,” Senate Leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham, said Wednesday during a news briefing.
