Inside the CRT Ban in Iowa, and Why It’s Needed

Laws banning discriminatory CRT training in public agencies, such as Iowa’s HF 802, are not stopping educators from teaching about equity and racial justice, as many people are claiming. As HF 802 states:

Each agency, governmental entity, or governmental subdivision may continue training that fosters a workplace and learning environment that is respectful of all employees. However, the head of an agency, governmental entity, or governmental subdivision shall ensure that any mandatory staff training provided by an employee of an agency . . . does not teach, advocate, encourage, promote, or act upon stereotyping, scapegoating, or prejudice toward others on the basis of demographic group membership or identity.

Interestingly, the toxic CRT training in April of 2021 inside an Iowa school district is exactly why HF 802 is needed, as this video will detail.
