What do Texas schools say about the KKK? The Texas Senate pushed to repeal requirements that public schools teach certain material about the Ku Klux Klan, the civil rights movement, and women’s suffrage on July 20. If the bill passes, students will no longer be required to learn about “the history of white supremacy, including but not limited to the institution of slavery, the eugenics movement, and the Ku Klux Klan, and how it is morally wrong,” according to the current requirement.

The proposed legislation is widely seen as part of a Republican anti-critical race theory campaign.

On July 18, the Republican-controlled upper chamber passed Senate Bill 3 by a vote of 18-4. Governor Greg Abbott of Texas signed legislation in June outlining how state schools can teach students about race and racism.

The law made it illegal for schools to teach that people are responsible for the actions of others in the past because of their race.

That bill included a section requiring students to learn “historical documents related to marginalized populations’ civic аccomplishments.” ”

The Texas Senate is considering legislation that would eliminate requirements that public schools teach certain material about the Ku Klux Klan, the civil rights movement, and women’s suffrage. In a statement to Bloomberg, state Senator Bryan Hughes, the bill’s author, said, “What we’re doing with this bill is saying that specific reading list doesn’t belong in statute.”
