Oklahoma Enforces CRT Ban

They are serious.

Conservative states are not fooling around when they mandate that students not be exposed to leftist CRT propaganda masquerading as education.

Oklahoma is cracking down on liberal racism, sexism, and anti-American conditioning previously condoned in classroom instruction and school libraries.

The state’s Education Secretary and the Governor, both conservative, are in the forefront of making schools accountable for transgressions of the new state law banning CRT programming. Two school districts were caught in the net and quickly came to heel. The students and parents of Oklahoma should be glad that they did.

Fox: “The Oklahoma State Board of Education disciplined two school districts for violating a new law that prevents Critical Race Theory, from being taught in the public school system last week.

The board held a meeting on Thursday, where they determined both Tulsa Public Schools and Mustang Public Schools violated House Bill (HB) 1775 in separate incidents last year. They subsequently voted to give both school districts an “accreditation with warning,” FOX 25 in Oklahoma City reported.

The warning is the third of the education board’s five-step accreditation tiers. It requires the districts to show they have made the required changes to re-meet the board’s standards.”

The two books in question are, “Gender Queer” and “Flamer ” Both were taken off shelves after the Oklahoma Education Secretary Ryan Walters wrote a Facebook post about them. His post was spiked by Facebook, which deemed the material referenced too graphic.

The new law “protects our children across the state from being taught revisionist history and that ‘one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex,’ or that ‘an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously,’” said State Sen. David Bullard, R-Durant, in a statement.

The penalties come as Walters recently said, “We’ve got woke Facebook that’s got higher standards than the superintendent of Tulsa Public Schools. It’s just outrageous.

“This is indicative of why this is one of the lowest performing schools in our state. We’ve got folks in positions of power and administrators that are more focused on a woke ideology and an agenda rather than making sure kids can read and write,” he added.

“What we’ve got to do is go back to teaching our history and ensuring that every young person has the ability to be successful and be inspired by our history. We’re the greatest country in the history of the world, and our kids need to know that.”

A spox for the district said on Thursday, “When we were made aware of the two books with inappropriate images, we immediately asked the secondary schools that had them to remove them from their libraries.”
