Democrats Block Carter’s Effort to Ban Funding for Schools Teaching Critical Race Theory (CRT)
“Critical Race Theory is destructive and rejects fundamental ideas on which our constitutional republic is based,” said Carter. “This horrible ideology has no place in America’s institutions. For years, the far-left has been pushing CRT into all our public, formative institutions such as public education.”
“Instead of focusing on keeping schools open, Democrats want to recklessly spend an additional $4 billion in giveaways to teachers’ unions through the Emergency Connectivity Fund that would only help to keep children at home,” he continued. “I will always fight back against this effort to undermine the truths about our nation’s founding. Our children are our future, and they deserve much better from us.”
Carter’s amendment would have prevented any educational institution which teaches CRT from receiving funds from the Emergency Connectivity Fund. The program, created earlier this year, is set to receive an additional $4 billion under House Democrats’ budget proposal -the “Build More Inflation Act.”
Committee Democrats rejected Carter’s amendment during today’s markup of the bill by a vote of 23 to 32.
