Temecula Valley Unified school board bans critical race theory

The Temecula Valley Unified school board banned the teaching of critical race theory in district schools after a heated board meeting Tuesday. Members of the conservative majority board voted 3-2 in favor of the ban, according to The Press-Enterprise.

Critical race theory, often taught at the college level, examines the role of institutions in racism throughout history.

Temecula Valley Unified joins other districts across the country that have pushed to prevent such topics from being taught in the classroom.That’s included Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified in Orange County, which banned it in April.
