“the Alabama State Board of Education believes that all individuals are endowed with equal inalienable rights, without respect to race or sex.”
The more people around the country learn what CRT is, the more people want nothing to do with it.

Alabama State Board of Education officially bans Critical Race Theory teachings in public schools
The Alabama Board of Education (BOE) on Thursday voted to officially ban the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in state public schools. The resolution was passed along party lines, with all seven Republicans voting for its approval, while the board’s two lone Democrats voted against the measure.
The board-approved resolution is titled, “The preservation of intellectual freedom and non-discrimination in Alabama’s public schools.” Its opening line reads, “the Alabama State Board of Education believes that all individuals are endowed with equal inalienable rights, without respect to race or sex.”
It further states, “[C]oncepts that impute fault, blame, a tendency to oppress others, or the need to feel guilt or anguish to persons solely because of their race or sex violate the premises of individual rights, equal opportunity, and individual merit,” going on to say that the controversial concept has “no place” in the state’s “public educational system.”
The resolution later states that the state BOE “will not support any K-12 public education resources or standards intended to indoctrinate students in social or political ideologies that promote one race or sex above another.”
The Alabama Policy Institute took to social media to applaud the ban, which the think-tank has long advocated.
The State Board of Education has formally opposed critical race theory in public K-12 schools. API called on the board to reject CRT in schools and we applaud the Board of Education for this decision. #alpoliticshttps://t.co/dQqPYWZaWi
