Excerpt: Oklahoma Secretary of Education Ryan Walters asked the Oklahoma State Board of Education to revoke a former Norman High School teacher’s teaching certificate on Wednesday after she resigned over allegedly violating House Bill 1775.

Summer Boismier resigned on Aug. 23 after a parent complained that she violated HB 1775 when she posted a QR code to the “Brooklyn Library Books Unbanned” in her classroom. HB 1775 restricts Oklahoma public schools from teaching students that a person, because of their race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist or oppressive, either knowingly or unknowingly.
