Critical Race Theory:  What Does it Have to Do with K-12 Education?  

This space will provide context for and an opportunity to discuss a general history of Critical Race Theory (specifically its origins in legal discourse), how it is different from Culturally Relevant Teaching/Pedagogy, and why it has re-emerged and been challenged in recent conversations.  We will also explore how it uses legal and social issues to address areas for critical inquiry. Participants are encouraged to submit questions ahead of time about CRT and its significance both as a social topic and as a theoretical framework.
