Republican Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders introduced an executive order Tuesday, her first official day in office, that would combat Critical Race Theory (CRT) in schools across the state.
The Daily Caller first obtained the executive order that will empower the Department of Education to prevent indoctrination and CRT of Arkansas students that conflict with principles of equal protection under the law. The order will also prohibit employees and students from having to attend CRT trainings and orientations.
CRT holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches people to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. Its adherents pursue “antiracism” through the end of merit, objective truth and the adoption of race-based policies. (RELATED: Sanders Gets Emotional Reading Veteran’s Letter To Trump [VIDEO])
