Bill would prohibit students from learning about racism and sexism

BOISE — On Friday morning, the House Education Committee voted unanimously to introduce a bill to prohibit schools from teaching students about "racist or sexist concepts." Any school violating this could be subject to a withholding of up to 10% of funding from the State Board of Education. Committee Democrats walked out of the hearing in a show of opposition. They did not participate in the vote.

The committee took place shortly before House members met to discuss recessing until April 6 due to concerns of a COVID-19 outbreak in the Statehouse. It was one of just two committees that chose to meet despite the looming recess.

Citing the need to “keep this extremely short,” Rep. Judy Boyle, R-Midvale, said there would be no questions about the proposed bills. Boyle, who approved the hearing of this proposed bill, is filling in for Chairman Lance Clow, R-Twin Falls. Clow was out due to testing positive for COVID-19.

"That's not how the process works,” Rep. Sally Toone, D-Gooding, said of not being allowed to ask questions.

4. Don't learn about sexism or racism.

Don't learn anything about sex education.

I have a young friend that dropped out of high school because he said that he didn't learn anything in school that would be useful later in life. All that he needed to know is how to read, write, and do basic math so he could buy and sell drugs.

6. Why not just cancel all education in Idaho?

Make it an education free zone and be done with it.
