OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. — The Osceola County School District is considering a ban on teaching critical race theory.
The teaching of the theory incorporates concepts of institutional racism in its lessons.
One school board member told Channel 9 that he has been contacted by parents who said they’re worried critical race theory will impact how their children get along with other students.
“We all want our kids to learn to the best degree that they can, but we don’t want them hating one another,” said Jon Arguello.
The school board will discuss the proposed ban again in two weeks.
Bills to limit what can be taught in classrooms are moving through Tallahassee.
A House bill has one more committee stop before heading to a full floor vote.
The bill would allow people to sue a school if they’re taught something that makes a student or employee feel guilt or discomfort.
It applies to businesses as well.
