Missouri Senate Considering Proposal to Educate Students About Prejudice and ‘Dehumanization’

Missouri could enact legislation that would educate students in grades six through 12 about the “dehumanization that minority groups have experienced.”

The bill is based around the story of Celia, a slave who was given the death penalty in the mid-1800s after defending herself against her owner.

University City Democrat Brian Williams says that this bill is the epitome of what it means to have family…

If enacted, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education would work on a pilot project to use in up to 25 school districts to study its impact and success.

No one testified in opposition to the bill during a committee hearing.
