Critical Race Theory, a controversial academic movement that deals with racial justice, has met with pushback in the state . Gov. Kristi Noem in July signed an executive order that bars officials for the South Dakota Department of Education from applying for federal grants in history or civics until after the 2022 legislative session, a move designed to ban grants tied to the theory.
