(Alabama Political Reporter, 8/16/21) The Alabama State School Board on Thursday passed a resolution that would ban some concepts or tenets that promote the controversial Critical Race Theory. Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey voted for the resolution. She was joined by fellow school board members Jackie Zeigler, Tracey West, Cynthia McCarty, Belinda McRae, Wayne Reynolds and Stephanie Bell.
“As I’ve said many times, CRT doesn’t belong in Alabama schools,” Ivey said. “CRT currently isn’t being taught in Alabama classrooms, and I’ve previously called on the Alabama School Board to keep it that way. We need to focus on teaching Alabama kids how to read and write, not hate.”
