Last week the Rhode Island House Education Committee held a hearing on H-6070, the bill I introduced as a Representative to ban the use of Critical Race Theory in our schools. Testimony was submitted by 577 Rhode Islanders. Half supported banning CRT, half opposed. The most fierce and vitriolic opposition came from teachers themselves, reflecting how deeply CRT already has penetrated education.
