Assembly set to vote on bill that targets race-based school logos

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- This Tuesday, the state Assembly is set to vote on a proposed bill that would crack down on race-based mascots and logos in Wisconsin schools.

Under the bill, the state Department of Public Instruction would investigate complaints about race-based names, nicknames, logos or mascots.

School boards would then be given a chance to argue that the logos or mascots don't discriminate, harass, or stereotype.

If schools refuse to make changes, they could be fined by the state superintendent.
