Norcross’ office did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment.
Asked after the hearing what he thought about being called a racist, Good told CNN, “Well, I think it’s telling that for some people when you are criticizing racist … something racist, like critical racist theory, then you are called a racist.”
Asked if he regretted his exchange with Cardona, Good said, “No.”
Cardona repeatedly said it is up to states and school districts to decide on their own curriculum but that “the culturally relevant pedagogy is critically important for students to feel engaged, and part of a school community. And I have confidence in our educators across the country to get it right.”
Later Thursday, Republicans on the Education and Labor Committee sent a letter to Chairman Bobby Scott, a Virginia Democrat, requesting an apology.
“Evidence strongly suggests that Rep. Donald Norcross was the Member who slandered Rep. Good, and we expect that Rep. Norcross will abide by the rules of the Committee and House of Representatives, along with his good conscience, and apologize to Rep. Good publicly,” the letter said. “It is our hope that you will work with him to ensure that occurs and that we can move forward with our work in a bipartisan and professional manner.”
This story has been updated with further developments Thursday.
