With a month to go in this current session of the Texas legislature, a Bill that would ban critical race theory from public schools is hitting the floor this week.
HB 3979, written by (R) Steve Toth from the Woodlands, will also address the state curriculum here in Texas, classroom education, and proper training for teachers. Plus, as we've noted recently, the bill would also require specific teaching of our founding documents.
"We're going to put an end to Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates spending their money to indoctrinate teachers in to believing this garbage" Toth told KTRH. "Critical race theory has been taught in our schools for the better part of 30 years. The crazy thing is, very few of us knew about it."
As for what prompted him to write the bill? Toth said he had to. "It's distressing to get phone calls from parents that are being told that their children are racist" "It's noting more than state sponsored racism, and we have to put an end to it."
With HB 3979 now out of the House Committee, Toth is confident the bill will pass once it hits the floor.
"We have the votes on the Republican side" Toth said, "Democrats have been equally shocked to learn that this is going on in classrooms across the state of Texas."
If the bill is passed, it would go into effect in September. Toth says it will be welcomed. "The bill puts an end to the teaching that we are a racist nation."
A huge win for conservatives, in a fight that is just beginning.
