Oklahoma’s Board of Education voted on Monday to bar K-12 public school teachers to talk over eight different concepts about race. The violators of this law will have their teaching license suspended.
In recent months prohibiting the teaching of critical race theory has become a raging subject of debate.
The 5-1 vote brings the board in arrangement with the recent state law, signed by Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt in May.
In the new law the teachers are strictly banned from telling the students that they are inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive by virtue of their race or sex, either consciously or unconsciously. The law also prohibits if any individual feels discomfort or guilt on account of his or her race or sex.
