Attorney General Todd Rokita is urging the Biden administration to reconsider educational proposals geared towards critical race theory.
The Attorney General is asking the Department of Education to “review the directives for teaching “traditional American history” as prescribed in the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015,” states his press release.
He tells Tony Katz as co-author of ESSA he knows the legislative intent behind the bill,
“To make sure states and localities have the most control over education as they should, not the federal government.”
He adds in his press release that “we don’t need a new liberal indoctrination project that endorses factually deficient instruction and racial division.”
The letter is joined by the attorneys general of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia.
Attorney General Rokita talked about CRT with Tony Katz Friday morning.
