Here’s what would be knocked out of Texas history classes under Senate Bill 3

Texas Republicans proposed a bill during the first 2021 Legislative Special Session that would eliminate important aspects of history from being taught in public schools. Under Senate Bill 3, issues involving women and people of color would be excluded from history lessons.

Below is a list of links of the historical events that would be excluded under the bill:
