EGPS Work Group for Racial Equity Discussion Group - Critical Race Theory

Event Description:

EGPS Work Group for Racial Equity Discussion Group

Critical Race Theory

Tuesday September 21, 2021 8:30 - 9:45PM

(Eastern Time - US and Canada)


Critical race theory has emerged as the hot button issue in education this year.  Conservative state legislatures have banned it from being taught, alleging that it would "exacerbate and inflame divisions on the basis of sex, race, ethnicity, religion, color, national origiin, or other criteria in ways contrary to the unity of the nation..." (Idaho law).  Scholars and journalists are pushing back and explaining that teachers need tools to examine racism in the foundations of the country.

So what is critical race theory?

And why is it considered dangerous by some and essential by others?

What does it matter to us in our lives, in our work, in this group?


There are many podcasts and articles about CRT.  Here are some:

Ibram X. Kendi: There is no debate over critical race theory

The Predictable Backlash to Critical Race Theory: interview with Kimberle Crenshaw

Critical RAce Theory, Comic Books and the Power of PUblic Schools - podcast interview with EVE Ewing by Ezra Klein
