ST. LOUIS (TND) — U.S. Senate candidate Trudy Busch Valentine, D-Mo., condemned critical race theory during an interview with a local television news outlet this week.
Valentine was asked about her support for legislation prohibiting instruction about sexuality and gender identity in grades K-3. Valentine didn’t directly answer the question, but included her thoughts about critical race theory being taught in schools instead.
Several states have passed legislation to prohibit the instruction of critical race theory in K-12 schools. However, some teachers and school administrators appear to be circumventing these newly passed laws in order to continue teaching prohibited concepts.
An undercover video investigation by Accuracy in Media discovered school administrators in Iowa admitting they have been adjusting language to evade a state law that prohibits the teaching of certain controversial theories, such as critical race theory.
