Congressman Greg Murphy Introduces ‘Educate Act’ to Ban DEI at Medical Schools

Merit Morgan, WITN, March 26, 2024

Congressman Greg Murphy introduced the ‘EDUCATE Act’, otherwise known as the Embracing Anti-Discrimination, Unbiased Curricula, and Advancing Truth in Education Act, just last week.

The EDUCATE Act is intended to ban race-based mandates at medical schools and accrediting institutions.

Congressman Murphy’s push for the act comes just after the state of Alabama banned diversity, equity, and inclusion programs in public colleges and offices.

Congressman Greg Murphy issued a statement to WITN: “The EDUCATE Act compels medical schools and accrediting bodies to ditch the discriminatory, divisive, and harmful nature of DEI initiatives. While diversity enriches the fabric of medicine, it must not be achieved through exclusionary practices. Patients care about a doctor’s ability to perform their job well, not their political beliefs. Medicine relies on objectivity and dedication to excellence and attempts to inject political ideology into the field are wholly inappropriate.”
