Bill would prohibit teaching 'divisive concepts' on race in RI
A bill that would restrict the way schools teach the role of race in American history has provoked heated criticism from educators, parents and other Rhode Islanders.
The bill — sponsored by Rep. Patricia Morgan of West Warwick, the former minority leader of the Rhode Island House, and fellow Republican Reps. George Nardone of Coventry and Sherry Roberts of West Greenwich — is similar in intent to at least a half-dozen bills before various state legislators, including New Hampshire’s.
Morgan’s bill would prevent schools from teaching that the state of Rhode Island or the United States is fundamentally racist or sexist, and that an individual, “by virtue of their race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past” on account of their race or sex.
RI State Rep. Patricia Morgan: Keep Critical Race Theory Out of Schools
Rhode Island House Representative Patricia Morgan filed a proposed bill that would prohibit the teaching in public schools or by entities that receive public fundings of concepts, like Critical Race Theory, that demonize or attempt to shame people based on race.
Introducing her proposed legislation: “Leave those children alone. Stop subjecting them to neo-racism and race shaming. It’s destructive…. We would never accept race shaming if it was directed towards black school children. We should not accept it when it’s directed at white school children. And that is what is happening in our schools.”
