Quick Glance: 'Battle for America's Classrooms: GOP Targets Race and Identity'
  • In 2021, a wealthy suburban school district in Texas garnered national attention when parents and local conservative activists falsely accused the district of indoctrinating students with Critical Race Theory.

  • This led to Republican figures across the country taking interest and sparked a Christian movement that extended beyond the district's borders to restrict what children are being taught in schools.

  • Mike Hixenbaugh's book 'They Came for the Schools' illustrates how this school district became a model for Republicans nationwide and revealed their ambitions that go well beyond controlling which version of American history enters high school textbooks.

  • The movement to revise American history and the battle over teachings in schools have far-reaching implications for teachers, students, and communities nationwide.

Texas man gets 33 months in prison for death threats to Rep. Maxine Waters
Quick Glance: Man receives almost 3 years for threatening Rep. Maxine Waters
  • A man aged 61 was sentenced to a term of nearly three years on Monday, June 17, following a sequence of phone calls made to the office of Rep. Maxine Waters in Hawthorne, during which he made life-threatening statements to her.

  • According to a criminal complaint filed in federal court, Gaherty phoned the congresswoman's office twice in August 2022 and twice in November 2022. Officials stated that Gaherty left behind four voicemails, each containing a threat.
