Wendy Rogers Announces Vote for and Senate Passage of AZ Bill to Ban Critical Race Theory

State Senator Wendy Rogers of Arizona announced on Twitter that she voted to pass S.B. 1074 which will effectively ban Critical Race Theory in her state’s school system. S.B. 1074 prohibits all state education systems from requiring any employees or students to face CRT which will develop, “forms of blame or judgement on the basis of race, ethnicity or sex”. The bill narrowly passed with a 16-14 vote. Notably, Paul Boyer, a Republican, voted against the bill’s passage.

One twitter user was infuriated by Reogers’ decision, saying, “tell me you’re a bigot without telling me you’re a bigot.”

Other twitter users praised Rogers for her vote, saying “Thank you!“, “Keep up the good work“, and “keep fighting!!

Critical Race Theory (CRT) is an academic movement typically promoted by civil rights scholars at liberal institutions who push to critically examine the law and how “systemic racism” affects justice in America. CRT has proven to be a polarizing subject as it is being pushed to be implemented in various state legislatures and school board meetings nationwide.

As we reported earlier this week, the governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp. also pushed back against CRT in his state.

Last week, Governor Kemp issued a letter last week, calling CRT a “dangerous ideology” and insisted that public schools statewide should abstain from implementing CRT in their curriculum. Kemp advised the Georgia State Board of Education to, “take immediate steps to ensure that Critical Race Theory and its dangerous ideology do not take root in our state standards or curriculum.” Kemp also went to Twitter to voice his opposition towards CRT, saying, “This divisive, anti-American agenda has no place in Georgia classrooms.

As CRT is pushed more aggressively, individual state legislatures will be forced to make a decision on whether or not to implement CRT in their school systems.
