Teachers across the country are on edge amid the heated national debate over critical race theory, as Republican legislators in multiple states have passed or introduced legislation that would limit how race and racism are discussed in classrooms.
Leaders at professional educator associations and unions say the measures have led to uneasiness among some educators about what the legislative push means for classroom discussions going forward, while others are using their collective voice to object to the bills they say are unnecessary and dangerous.
Colin Sharkey — executive director for the Association of American Educators, a national non-union and nonpartisan professional educators’ association with roughly 25,000 members — said the push to regulate classroom discussions about race and racism has some teachers worried about possible retribution.
