Under Beeler's legislation, lessons regarding a racial, ethnic or gender group holding the same  "collective quality of belief" or that "cultural norms or practices" of one of these demographics "are flawed and must be eliminated" would be banned. Beeler's bill does not include a portion withholding 5% in a district or public school academy's state funding for conducting such lessons as would an earlier bill proposed by Senator Lana Theis (SB 0460). 

MLA is opposed to this bill as it challenges intellectual freedom and the Governor is expected to veto the bill if it crosses her desk. We will continue to monitor this bill and make our opposition known at every stage of its movement through the legislative process.
