What Is Critical Race Theory?

Posted by:

Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a legal framework that originated in the 1970s intending to challenge legal scholarship to consider the historical and present impact and causes of structural inequality and racism. CRT is an academic lens primarily used at the doctoral level and is not a defined curriculum or something outlined in the Kansas State Board of Education's education standards. It is distinctly different from the guiding tenets of educational equity with which it is regularly confused.
