North Dakota has officially banned the Marxism-rooted Critical Race Theory (CRT) from being taught in the state's public schools.

On Thursday, the state House of Representatives passed a bill banning the teaching of Critical Race Theory in public schools.

The North Dakota state Senate then passed the bill on Friday.

Republican Governor Doug Burgum has signed that bill into state law.

The text of the one-page bill reads in part:

Each school district and public school shall ensure instruction of its curriculum is factual, objective, and aligned to the kindergarten through grade twelve state content standards.

A school district or public school may not include instruction relating to critical race theory in any portion of the district’s required curriculum … or any other curriculum offered by the district or school.

For purposes of this section, “critical race theory” means the theory that racism is not merely the product of learned individual bias or prejudice, but that racism is systemically embedded in American society and the American legal system to facilitate racial inequality. The superintendent of public instruction may adopt rules to govern this section.

In a statement about the new law, Gov. Burgum said:

"This bill addresses the concerns of parents while preserving the decision-making authority of local school boards to approve curriculum that is factual, objective and aligned with state content standards."

One of the sponsors of the bill, Republican Rep. Dan Ruby, also provided a statement:

“Teaching history and social studies are important and not hindered by a restriction on CRT.

"Students should learn about how our country’s founding was based on many great principles, as well as the mistakes that have been made throughout our history, but to say that our country is [systemically] racist is denying the truth about the struggles this country has made to ensure equality and opportunities for all minorities.”

As reported by KFYR, Democratic state Rep. Corey Mock had concerns about the apparent lack of an enforcement mechanism in the bill: “Right [now], we are saying there are no consequences.

"Push back all you want, there’s nothing we or an aggrieved parent can do about it.

"I am uncomfortable with us rushing into this and creating a bad law that we’re only going to have to work back in the next year if we’re going to make it enforceable.”

Critical Race Theory has rapidly become a controversial issue in public education and in the workplace.

Despite many conservatives pointing out that race essentialism is being taught in schools across the country, many progressives deny the presence of Critical Race Theory, as understood academically, in K-12 education.

During a recent debate with Ana Kasparian of “The Young Turks,” Ben Shapiro countered the increasingly popular progressive talking point that Critical Race Theory isn’t taught in public schools.

After Kasparian claimed that Critical Race Theory “is not taught in elementary schools,” and that the sprint to ban CRT is a “distraction,” Shapiro responded by pointing out that what’s being taught is indeed a “boiled down” version of the race essentialism ideology.

“When you are having elementary school students who are having to check off boxes with regard to their race and then explain to each other whether they are historically privileged or not in fourth or fifth grade, that’s a very dumbed-down version of Critical Race Theory,” Shapiro stated.
