INDIANAPOLIS—Indiana teachers unexpectedly got what they have been advocating for during the General Assembly’s 2022 session—the death of House Bill 1134.

Controversial "anti-CRT" education bill passes in Senate committee

Teachers with the Indiana State Teachers Association speak with Rep. Timothy Wesco, R-Osceola, about House Bill 1134 on February 10.

After hours of Senate Republicans meeting in caucus and the bill being moved to the end of the Senate calendar twice, Senate sponsor Sen. Linda Rogers, R-Granger, passed on the bill during the second reading deadline. This means the bill—which would have created a curriculum advisory committee, required schools to maintain learning management systems and prohibited teaching of certain “divisive concepts”—is officially dead.
