Critical Race Theory and Education: What Is Going On Here? (DMIT Sparkshop)

Workshop/Training | Learning Circles

Critical Race Theory started in legal studies back in the 1980s, but has recently made media headlines as a point of controversy. Republican-lead states have launched a full on attack of CRT, completely banning it from being discussed or taught in K-12 schools. Back in May, Utah Governor Spencer Cox asserted that "critical race theory should not be taught in Utah elementary, middle and high schools, but asserted the now controversial, yet difficult-to-define theory does belong in colleges and universities (KSL News)." This Sparkshop will define CRT, talk about its place in education, and help clarify misunderstandings surrounding the theory.
