Critical race theory to be discussed Monday at Missouri Capitol

Missouri lawmakers will hear invited testimony Monday afternoon in Jefferson City on critical race theory and the 1619 project.

The Joint Committee on Education is a committee comprised of state senators and representatives. They’ll hear invited testimony at 1, but will also accept written testimony.

The committee is chaired by State Sen. Cindy O’Laughlin (R-Shelbina).

Two mid-Missouri lawmakers serve on the joint committee: State Reps. Chuck Basye (R-Rocheport) and Ed Lewis (R-Moberly).

Representative Basye joined “Wake Up Columbia” live this morning on the Eagle. He says CRT supporters will be testifying at today’s hearing.
