Students won’t be taught social justice programs, at least not from the latest initiative coming from the University of Memphis.

The Mid-South university will cancel a controversial program that incentivized teachers to adjust their curriculum to incorporate “diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice,” according to a Washington Free Beacon report.

The program received national backlash.

When Gov. Bill Lee (TN-R) heard about the program, he contacted the university, the report added.

“Ending this program was the right decision, and I thank the university for hearing our concerns,” Lee told the Free Beacon.
