    The One About Critical Race Theory and K-12 Education

    Critical Race Theory or CRT has become a hot-button issue and a concern for many parents of K-12 students in the United States.  Six states (Idaho, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Iowa, and New Hampshire) have passed laws and nearly 20 additional states have introduced or plan to introduce similar legislation to regulate how race is discussed in the classroom.  In this episode, our guests defined CRT, talked about it’s origins, and discussed what our nation’s students are being taught in schools about race and our country’s history with racism.

So Much Good Information!!

Wish I had access to information like this when my son was growing up. The diversity and quality of the guests on this show is outstanding! David and Doneda ask such great questions and then get out of the way and let the experts speak. Such a refreshing change from most talk shows!

As a veteran teacher with over 10 years teaching experience, this show is the best professional development I have ever had. It has allowed me to gain access to professionals I would otherwise not be able to gain access to and glean from their experience.
