Federal judge weighs New Hampshire’s ‘divisive concepts’ law

(The Center Square) – A federal judge is considering a lawsuit challenging a New Hampshire law that limits how teachers discuss racism and discrimination in the classroom.

The lawsuit, filed by the National Education Association of New Hampshire and American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire, seek to overturn the so-called “divisive concepts” law that prohibits teaching about systemic racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination in public schools and state-funded programs.

The NEA’s lawsuit was merged by the court with another legal challenge filed by the American Federation of Teachers of New Hampshire, another teachers’ union.
