RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina Senate committee have advanced a measure that would limit how teachers can discuss racial concepts inside the classroom. The move came Tuesday as Republican Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson released a task force report citing alleged cases of “indoctrination” in North Carolina public schools. The Senate Education Committee devolved into chaos  as conservatives challenged Democrats who questioned the merits of the bill. The bill is widely seen as a response to critical race theory, a framekwork legal scholars developed decades ago centering on the idea that racism is systemic. It has become somewhat of a catchall phrase to describe concepts some Republicans find objectionable.
