Banning Divisive Concepts in Higher Education: The Next Frontier for Texas and Other Patriotic States

Texas is a leader among states in passing strong legislation designed to ensure that K-12 schools cannot easily indoctrinate students with dangerous critical theories. Its newly amended law, SB3 (pdf), ensures that protections against indoctrination extend to all courses, not just social studies. In addition, it passed the “American Patriotism” bill.

But despite its leadership in the K-12 area, there’s a glaring hole when it comes to protections for college and university students. Texas legislators might want to take a close look at Tennessee, which has recently passed legislation that protects students and employees in higher education from forced participation in activities that advance a particular ideological agenda. The bill contains the prohibited concepts banned in K-12 education that have come to dominate university campuses, stifling free speech and viewpoint diversity.
