My son Gage will not be taught that he is held back because of the color of his skin. Gage has every opportunity that anyone else in America has, and the only thing standing in the way of his success is himself.

I voted to ban critical race theory in Tennessee because Gage is his own artist of his own masterpiece, and so are you. Your circumstances don’t define you. Your actions and pursuits will define you.

The Tennessee General Assembly makes laws that protect the integrity of our state and defend those of us who are the most vulnerable. This time, the group in desperate need of defense is our children as critical race theory, a dangerous theory, is sweeping through our schools.
