A Pennsylvania school district voted unanimously Tuesday to reject a bill if it were to pass into law that would prohibit teaching “racist” ideas, such as that any race is superior to another.
The Pittsburgh school district passed a resolution saying it would deny “harmful legislation,” such as the Republican-backed bill called HB 1532.
Board member Devon Taliaferro said, “[Children] They deserve leaders who will stand up for their rights and blast “extremist politicians” who claim they are trying to censor the curriculum.
“I hope that we will be the leaders that our students need to carry the legacy of the future…that starts with policy and things we can control.”

HB 1532, if it passes into law, would ban the teaching of “racist and sexist ideas” in school districts, and is “aimed at reducing the divisive nature of ideas commonly known as ‘critical race theory.’”
“Critical race theory further divides us by making the immutable characteristics of race and gender the main factor in how we see others—just the opposite. [Martin Luther] A King’s Dream,” according to Law’s description.
“Our law makes it clear that no Pennsylvania school district, public post-secondary institution, or state or local governmental entity shall teach that one race or sex is superior to another, that any person is inherently racist or sexist based on their race or sex, or that any person should receive favorable treatment or be discriminated against on the basis of their race or sex,” the bill said.

On the other hand, the resolution claimed that the bill aimed to teach history accurately.
“They deserve to learn about our history properly, read books that represent their heritage and culture, and discover who they are and how they identify,” said one board member.
LBL Digital reached out for comment and cited a press release, which said, “The District formally opposes and rejects any legislation that stifles classroom discussion, promotes fear, intolerance and hate, and devalues employees, students and families of color. , and LGBTQ+ students, staff and families.”
Around the United States, republican Lawmakers introduced legislation to address the use of critical race theory in public schools, and while some critics claimed the bills attacked free speech, other advocates framed the issue as a matter of preventing discrimination based on race and upholding federal civil rights laws.
Georgia State Rep. Will Wade, R-Dawsonville, Georgia, the law’s sponsor, said his bill aims to “make sure that kids in the classroom are not competing against each other based on their race. I believe that’s how we should measure the content of our character and our treatment of every human being.” Full and complete respect should be shown.”
“This is very clearly about rooting out discrimination and racism for everyone. This is not a Republican issue. This is not a Democrat issue,” an Arizona state representative previously told LBL Digital. “It furthers the work of our civil rights leaders who fought so hard to get us to where we are today.”
