I am signing this pledge because the recently proposed legislation to dictate to teachers is censorship and the whitewashing of U.S. history.

If our kids are going to be prepared for the challenges of their future, we as their teachers need to foster an honest representation of the past, while giving them the critical thinking skills and the empathy to treat all people with respect and understanding.

These proposed bills are indoctrination, whereas we teachers need to promote an inclusive history so young people can make informed decisions about their futures.
