Alabama State Board of Education officially bans Critical Race Theory teachings in public schools

The Alabama Board of Education (BOE) on Thursday voted to officially ban the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in state public schools. The resolution was passed along party lines, with all seven Republicans voting for its approval, while the board’s two lone Democrats voted against the measure.

The board-approved resolution is titled, “The preservation of intellectual freedom and non-discrimination in Alabama’s public schools.” Its opening line reads, “the Alabama State Board of Education believes that all individuals are endowed with equal inalienable rights, without respect to race or sex.”

It further states, “[C]oncepts that impute fault, blame, a tendency to oppress others, or the need to feel guilt or anguish to persons solely because of their race or sex violate the premises of individual rights, equal opportunity, and individual merit,” going on to say that the controversial concept has “no place” in the state’s “public educational system.”
