MADISON — Wisconsin has joined the list of states considering bills that would ban teaching ideas linked to critical race theory.

A group of white Republican lawmakers introduced legislation Thursday that would bar public schools, the University of Wisconsin System and state technical colleges from teaching critical race theory concepts that racism is built into society. The bills also would prohibit local governments and state agencies from training employees on such concepts, mirroring an executive order that former President Donald Trump issued in September barring federal employees from being trained on them. President Joe Biden lifted that order in January.
