Texas superintendent apologizes after official's Holocaust remarks

In the meeting, according to the news outlet, Ms. Peddy talked about a new Texas law, House Bill 3979, which relates to how public schools handle subjects such as critical race theory. The measure says that teachers who choose to discuss current events or “controversial issues of public policy or social affairs” should also explore the issues “from diverse and contending perspectives without giving deference to any one perspective.”…

“We are in the middle of a political mess,” a voice identified as Ms. Peddy’s can be heard saying in the recording.

She later says, “make sure that if you have a book on the Holocaust, that you have one that has an opposing, that has other perspectives.”

Her remarks drew an audible reaction from other people in the room, including one person who asked, “How do you oppose the Holocaust?”
