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.
