A ban on critical race theory in Alabama schools was approved Thursday. The Republican-led state school board voted 6-2 in favor of a resolution prohibiting the teaching of "concepts that impute fault, blame, a tendency to oppress others, or the need to feel guilt or anguish to persons solely because of their race or sex.” The board's two Democrats opposed the resolution. Board member Tonya Chestnut expressed concerns the ban could have unintended consequences. "There concern is relevant to whether or not African-American history will be compromised, based on what's written in this resolution," board member Tonya Chestnut said. During public comment, Vincent Miller, an opponent of critical race theory, said the controversial teachings have no place in classrooms. "Do you think that it's right to judge people by the color of their skin? That's what critical race theory does. And it creates resentment and division." Teachers who violate the ban could face disciplinary action.
