State Rep. Ann Bollin and the Michigan House today approved a plan to prohibit race and gender stereotyping from being taught in Michigan schools.

“The radical new approach some are taking to push race and gender stereotypes onto young, impressionable children is wrong,” said Bollin, of Brighton Township. “Bringing such stereotypes into our classrooms divides kids and falsely teaches them that the color of their skin or their sex matters more than the content of their character.”

House Bill 5097, which Bollin helped sponsor, simply prohibits any form of race or gender stereotyping in core academic curriculum.

The measure now advances to the Senate for further consideration.
