Opinion: To Truly Abolish DEI in Texas, Educators Must Be Held Accountable

Across the country, well-intentioned legislators are introducing and advocating for bills that prohibit Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs from operating at public universities in their states. More than two dozen bills to ban DEI and similar programs in higher education have been introduced in state legislatures across the country, and at least nine states have adopted this legislation.
