RALEIGH – The N.C. Senate Committee on Education convened Wednesday to discuss proposed legislation addressing anti-discrimination in the public school curriculum.
Speaking to the bill, Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson takes to the podium to engage one of the most pressing and consequential cultural debates in America today.
The committee meeting commences at 2:00 PM. Watch the debate, and comments from Lt. Gov. Robinson live below:
The legislation in question, House Bill 324, opens with the following:
“The General Assembly finds that Article I, Section 1 of the Constitution of this State recognizes the equality and rights of all persons. Therefore, it is the intent of the General Assembly that students, teachers, administrators, and other school employees respect the dignity of others, acknowledge the right of others to express differing opinions, and foster and defend intellectual honesty, freedom of inquiry and instruction, and freedom of speech and association.”
Aimed right at the heart of Woke Critical Theories that filter every possible thing through a binary oppressed/oppressor qualifier and attaching favor and disfavor to select groups based on the radical ideology. Elements of these theories are pervasive and purposeful in North Carolina schools, teacher training seminars and materials, school assignments, school administrations guidelines, and so on and so forth.
It should be be rooted out once and for all as a basis for instruction in any public school.
