The Charlotte Observer (Sunday)
Debate on CRT
The Observer’s July 16 Editorial criticizes N.C. Senate leader Phil Berger’s bill as premature at best. It initially praises Berger for clarifying that his bill doesn’t forbid classroom discussion of Critical Race Theory, but later criticizes it for potentially creating a “chilling effect.”
I say we must debate it — and it’s potential for harm — at every level of government from the legislature to school boards. We don’t need to postpone debate. We need to speed it up.
