This is basically an “install CRT everywhere bill.” We oppose this bill based upon the following reasons.
“This is a dangerous bill. School Climate Surveys ask very subjective questions that are often very leading and confusing – questions regarding a student’s perception of how “safe” their school is. It also asks questions about a student’s social, sexual, and racial values, attitudes, and beliefs.
- Trying to make schools “free-from” is compelled thought and speech. Ergo… a violation of the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
- It will force schools to report demographics of bullied students, but demographics shouldn’t matter. Behaviors matter.
- Data will be misused in an attempt to form a narrative of widespread racism.
