WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to H.B. 3979 being struck down by a procedural move in the Texas House Representatives this evening, Laura Zorc, FreedomWorks Director of Education Reform, commented:
“Critical Race Theory teaches children to view others based on their skin color rather than their character. On behalf of our activists and parents across Texas, FreedomWorks urges the legislature to pass H.B. 3979 without delay. This bill, if passed, would specifically prohibit teaching that an individual, by virtue of the individual’s race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously”.
“America has recently witnessed a surge in Texas and across the country of parents rejecting Critical Race Theory and standing up to those who would impose it upon their children. We need the legislature to join parents in this effort and reject illiberal Critical Race Theory.”
