Oppose: This legislation would chill teachers' ability to discuss current events and restrict them from using certain teaching materials, such as the widely acclaimed 1619 Project from the New York Times. In general, the proposed bill provides a stricter framework for social studies curriculum and would discourage students from getting involved with civic engagement efforts.

Update June 1, 2021: This bill passed both chambers of the legislature and was sent to the governor to be signed into law.
