Ramona school board bans the teaching of race theories

A civic education policy, approved unanimously by the board Aug. 12, bans the teaching of 10 concepts about race, including: teaching that a person is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive because of their race or sex, whether intentionally or unintentionally; a person’s worth is determined by their race or sex; a person bears responsibility for past actions of people of the same race or sex; a person should feel guilty or not because of their race or sex; and that the advent of slavery constituted the beginning of the United States.
