As Georgia Republicans ram HB 1084 through the legislature, teachers and parents have been condemning the dangerous classroom censorship legislation that could prevent students from learning a whole, honest, and accurate history of our nation.
The bill is a priority for Brian Kemp and a centerpiece of his extreme, anti-education agenda, which would pit parents against teachers, jeopardize Georgia kids’ education, and make teachers’ jobs harder — all in a shameless attempt to boost his own re-election campaign.
