Today, the General Assembly passed House Bill 324 that would disallow teachers from “compelling students...to affirm or profess belief in” 13 concepts, such as the belief that “one race is inherently superior to another.”
The Report on Indoctrination in North Carolina Public Education irrefutably established that there is a clear problem affecting education in our state. The report created by my Office consisted of 500+ F.A.C.T.S. submissions, follow-up emails with those who submitted complaints to gain additional evidence, documents from public schools and county boards of education, articles, and relevant social media from those involved in public education in North Carolina.
However, Governor Cooper believes that this is an, "injected calculated, conspiracy-laden politics into public education." This is real Governor, and I assure you that it is happening.
Following the passage of the bill, I delivered a letter to the Governor urging him to sign the bill. It is time, that we as North Carolinians tell the Governor that we must teach our how to think, and not what to think. Will you stand with me and urge Governor Cooper to sign House Bill 324?
