(Bismarck, ND) -- A hearing is set to hear public comment about proposed rules surrounding a ban on teaching critical race theory.

The hearing will take place Thursday morning in the Peace Garden Room of the state Capitol in Bismarck. The initial purpose of the meeting is to help provide more guidance for school districts around the state on what the ban truly entails.

Public comment could result in revisions in the rules before they are finalized.
