“Divisive Concepts:” Legal Challenges to the Public School Curriculum
by Colleen Chesnut & Suzanne Eckes
Over the past year, controversies involving public school curricula have heightened, and many state legislatures have proposed or passed laws that limit instruction related to certain contentious topics and, in some cases, expand opportunities for parents to review and even opt their children out of lessons that they find objectionable. Lawsuits have already been initiated challenging some of these laws. Most recently, a group in Oklahoma challenged a state law that allegedly censored classroom discussions on gender and race (Black Emergency Response Team v. O’Connor, 2021). Similar lawsuits have been filed in other parts of the country (McCormack, 2021). While educators will be required to comply with laws and regulations in their own states, it is important that school leaders remain aware of this evolving legal landscape. This article will summarize a few illustrative federal court decisions related to curricular challenges, providing a glimpse into how future cases in this area may be considered.
