Kristi Noem proposes legislation banning Critical Race Theory

South Dakota joins 17 other states in proposing or enacting legislation against critical race theory. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis banned CRT from classrooms over the summer.

In South Dakota, Republican Gov. Kristi Noem just proposed legislation that aims to eliminate Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the state’s public school system.

This legislation is an official cure to her executive order that banned CRT just a few months ago. On top of the CRT ban, Noem also told the South Dakota Department of Education that, until 2022, they could not apply for grants from the federal government in the fields of history or civics.

Noem said in a statement Monday that, “Americans believe ‘all men are created equal,’ and we also believe the American dream is available to all regardless of race, color, or national origin.”
