A new measure would bar public schools in Washington, D.C., from making students participate in critical race theory-related “anti-racism” exercises to apologize for their identity.

The bill, introduced by Wisconsin Republican Rep. Glenn Grothman, is called the “Ending Critical Race Theory in D.C. Public Schools Act” and would effectively prohibit public institutions from hosting “anti-racism” sessions. Likewise, it would ban teachers from communicating to students that the United States is “fundamentally racist or sexist” and that people of a certain background can be held responsible for decisions by other people with some of the same physical characteristics.

“No employee of the District of Columbia Public Schools or the District of Columbia Public 9 Charter Schools shall compel a teacher or student to adopt, affirm, adhere to, or profess ideas that promote race or sex stereotyping or scapegoating,” the bill states.

The congressman specifically notes that such stereotyping takes the form of teachers instructing students they are “oppressive” or “racist” due to their respective biology.

“My heart goes out to any children who have the misfortune of attending the District of Columbia schools. Objective statistics show the District of Columbia having the second-highest spending per student in the country, while having either the lowest or second-lowest reading and math scores in the country,” Grothamn told the Washington Free Beacon. “So while the kids can’t read and kids can’t add, they’ll sure be able to spout Marxist, America-hating rhetoric.”

In April, Idaho moved to take action on critical race theory in a similar way. Republican Gov. Brad Little signed a ban on educators “indoctrinating” students and forcing them to “affirm, adopt or adhere to” background stereotyping. Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott signed a law this week prohibiting critical race theory in public schools and on forcing students to align with “an understanding of The 1619 Project.”
