Joint Committee on Education Legislative Hearing
Monday, July 19, 2021 at 12:30 pm
Capitol in Jefferson City 

The Joint Committee on Education is holding a public hearing to discuss banning certain discussions of historic and systemic racism in public education curriculum. 

The Missouri Legislative Black Caucus and the MO State Conference of the NAACP are encouraging anyone interested in protecting the ability of local school districts and teachers to determine how to have difficult conversations in an age-appropriate manner to attend these hearings. Public testimony may or may not be taken at this hearing, but your presence sends a strong message that the majority of Missourians support local control over curriculum decisions. There is no legislation pending at this time. However, these discussions are setting the groundwork for legislation in 2022. 

Contact Sharon Geuea Jones at for more details.
