Parents Bill Of Rights Passes Senate
The Missouri Senate has passed a bill that would restrict race-related teaching and spell out the rights of parents in the educational records of their child. Under the bill, it would ban teaching that “individuals, by virtue of their race, ethnicity, color, or national origin, bear collective guilt and are inherently responsible for actions committed in the past by others.” State Senator Karla May, a St. Louis Democrat, is against the proposal…
State Senator Andrew Koenig (kay-nig), who is sponsoring the bill, stresses that teaching history is important, but teaching that systemic racism is “woven into the fabric of American culture” is wrong and should not be taught in the classroom. The next stop for the bill is the Missouri House.
