Wisconsin Rep. Glenn Grothman (R) introduced legislation Friday that would bar the teaching of critical race theory in Washington, D.C. public schools.

The “Ending Critical Race Theory in D.C. Public Schools Act” is the latest push by Republicans to ban critical race theory in schools across the nation. Five states have already passed legislation to prevent the controversial teachings from being taught and 16 have introduced such legislation, according to NBC News. The D.C bill is not expected to pass through the Democratic majority in the House.

Grothman said in a press release that critical race theory tells children “to hate each other and hate their country.” The bill is also supported by four co-sponsors: GOP Reps. Ralph Norman (S.C.), Pat Fallon (Texas), Bob Gibbs (Ohio) and Ronny Jackson (Texas). Congressional lawmakers are able to create laws that impact D.C. because it is not a state [Townhall].
