Montana’s top prosecutor bans critical racial theory programs
HELENA, Mont. (AP) – Montana’s senior prosecutor issued an opinion Thursday calling critical race theory and some anti-racist programs taught in schools “discriminatory” and said they violated federal and state law.
The ruling by Republican Attorney General Austin Knudsen bans activities – which are also used for employee training – in the state. It came after Republican Superintendent of Public Education Elsie Arntzen earlier this month asked Knudsen for her opinion on the matter.
