Texas lawmakers discuss critical race theory in higher education

AUSTIN — A bill that would ban critical race theory from being taught in higher education went before members of the Texas Senate Higher Education Subcommittee on Thursday.

Senate Bill 16 would prohibit faculty of higher education institutions from compelling or attempting to compel a student to adopt “a belief that any race, sex, ethnicity or social, political or religious belief is inherently superior to any other race.”

“No one is suggesting that various and diverse materials will not be presented to students,” said state Sen. Bryan Hughes, R-Mineola and author of the bill. “…However, we want to draw that line and say we do not want the university telling students, ‘you must believe X,’ ‘you must adopt this belief.’”

Critical race theory is a university-level academic concept that teaches that race is a social construct embedded into American legal systems and policies.
