Texas Senate Bill 3 went into effect on Dec. 2, after being signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott on Sept. 17, in an effort to combat "critical race theory" in the state of Texas.
Among its many stipulations, S.B. 3 states, "that a teacher may not be compelled to discuss a controversial issue of public policy or social affairs."
The law also indicates that if the teacher does feel inclined to discuss such an issue, they must do so, providing "diverse and contending perspectives without giving deference to any one perspective." The new law prohibits teachers from working for any lobbies or policy advocacy groups on the federal, state, or local level. S.B.3 further forbids teaching that one race is superior to another, that an individual's moral character or worth is determined by their sex or race, or that an individual should bear the consequences of past acts committed by the respective sex or race.
After signing the bill into law, Gov. Greg Abbott said, “more must be done to abolish critical race theory in Texas," according to the Texas Tribune.
S.B. 3 will guide the State Board of Education's social studies curriculum for kindergarten through grade 12.
