Becker schools proposing policy to ban ‘divisive’ concepts from district


Jenny Berg from the Star Tribune has the story about a proposed rule that would ban “divisive concepts” from Becker school district. The policy draft states that the policy’s purpose is to ensure students and staff are treated with respect and unbiased. It also stipulates that “neither the teaching of inherently divisive concepts or political indoctrination will be permitted” and that classrooms should be free from personal bias. Many interpret this as the district trying suppress free speech, suppress LGBTQ advocates and prevent the accurate teaching of history.
