Week 15

Collinsville homeschool students visited the Capitol having completed a year of studying early American history and the US Constitution

A friend texted me this weekend happy to see all of the good things coming out of the state legislature. I asked her to explain as I am frustrated to see so many bills stalled for one reason or another. She said, “They made Oklahoma a 2nd Amendment sanctuary state, rid our schools of critical race theory, made it so patients can have a person in the hospital with them at all times, and eliminated the outdated 8th grade reading test requirement.”  Wow! This has been a busy session!

It was helpful to hear her encouraging perspective as we face the last few days of this session. Many good bills have made it through the process and to the governor’s desk but there are a few more waiting to be heard.

A budget agreement has been reached between the Governor, the Senate, and the House pending the passage of several measures through both chambers over the next few days.

HB1775 The anti-CRT Bill

Once again, it is so good to be an Oklahoman. Governor Kevin Stitt has signed HB1775. It is now time for the people of this state to be vigilant in order to rid Oklahoma of this evil indoctrination.

This doctrine of race and sex is being taught in schools across the United States and it has infiltrated many areas. We the People have allowed this to happen because we have become lazy and dependent on our state to protect us from all that we feel is wrong.

We are beginning to push back against this indoctrination and there are some courageous people in the state legislature who are diligently working to remove this training from schools across Oklahoma. However, some media outlets have misrepresented this bill.

Here is the meat of the bill:

The provisions of this subsection shall not prohibit the teaching of concepts that align to the Oklahoma Academic Standards.  (History must be taught)

1. No teacher, administrator or other employee of a school district, charter school or virtual charter school shall require or make part of a course the following concepts: 

a.one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex,

b.an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously,

c.an individual should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment solely or partly because of his or her race or sex,

d.members of one race or sex cannot and should not attempt to treat others without respect to race or sex,

e.an individual’s moral character is necessarily determined by his or her race or sex,

f.an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex,

g.any individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race or sex, or

h.meritocracy or traits such as a hard work ethic are racist or sexist or were created by members of a particular race to oppress members of another race.

  1. A lot of great legislation has been passed some not so great. We need SB925 to go to the governors desk and be signed. I believe this will greatly reduce crime. It will be very helpful in our rural community.

    1. I agree with you that many “not so good” bills have made it through the process. I’m thankful for the slow, deliberative process. It keeps good bills from passing easily, but it also keeps many bad bills out.
      As for SB925, I always look forward to hearing any bill supporting the 2nd Amendment.
