Statement from State Sen. Scott Baldwin

STATEHOUSE (January 10, 2022) – "I unequivocally condemn Nazism, fascism and Marxism. When I said in the meeting, “I’m with you on those particular isms” that is what I meant to convey. As someone who fought to defend our democracy, I agree teachers should condemn those dangerous ideologies and I sincerely regret that I did not articulate that and apologize for it.

We absolutely need to teach our children about the tragedies of the past, which is why the legislation in its current form specifically protects the teaching of historical injustices. I said Wednesday that we need to listen and be open to changes that can improve the bill, and we are working on amendments to that end."
