Ilhan Omar denies critical race theory is being taught in schools

"Republicans love to create outrage over things that aren’t actually happening," she wrote on Twitter. "People should be asking them, what elementary, middle and high school is teaching Critical Race Theory and why they are spinning false narratives."

The Minnesota Democrat’s comments come just one day after Wisconsin Republican Rep. Glenn Grothman introduced a bill that would ban Washington, D.C. public schools from teaching the controversial subject.

His bill, which was introduced on the first federal Juneteenth holiday, is just the latest in a series of legislative pushes to ban critical race theory from public schools and universities.
