From the article:
The Oklahoma State Board of Education voted this week to downgrade the accreditation of Tulsa Public Schools after a teacher reportedly complained that the school district’s training materials “shame white people.”
The board voted 4-2 to lower the status of Tulsa Public Schools to “accredited with warning” on Thursday after the State Department of Education determined an implicit bias training for teachers in August 2021 violated House Bill 1775. The law, which restricts discussions of race and sex in public schools, is widely seen as targeting critical race theory. The state investigation began after a complaint from a teacher who has not been publicly identified, according to the Oklahoman.
The board also demoted another district, Mustang Public Schools near Oklahoma City, to “accredited with warning” after it self-reported that a teacher had violated House Bill 1775 by using an exercise that made students uncomfortable on account of their race or sex.
They don’t want the Tulsa Race Massacre taught. THAT is what this is all about. We can’t have THE TRUTH BEING TOLD…..CAN WE?
You drop bombs, burn an entire community, and commit wholesale murder on a community…
YOU SHOULD FEEL BAD ABOUT IT. YOU DID THIS EVIL.
