Indiana 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 93 WIBC’s 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.

Good!! Im tired of seeing the education system plagued by political “persuasion”. Teach children about history and let them decide where they stand when they become adults. Stop using the proven facts that kids are soaking up knowledge as they grow to push agendas.

CRT is racism, but it’s ok (according to the divisive left) because it’s against white people.

Biden and his supporters who support CRT are racists.
