The San Dieguito Union High School District in North County San Diego would be the first in the county to ban the controversial teaching practice, the Times of San Diego reported.
The school board will consider proposed language that says “Instruction shall not teach or include Critical Race Theory as part of the curriculum, instruction or educational materials” during its virtual meeting Thursday.
Other school districts in San Diego and across the country are considering banning the teaching, which has become a political flashpoint.
Critical race theory focuses on how power structures and institutions impact racial minorities but critics say it can make White men feel like they are oppressors and women and minorities feel like helpless victims.
The new language is supported by the district’s interim Superintendent Lucile Lynch.

Parent Deborah Harroun in rural Ramona said last month she supports a similar proposal in that school district.
