An example in Beaverton, Oregon | By Jeff Myers | June 6, 2022

This news story pulls together many concepts and content from the past year of research into what’s happening in schools. I use our local school district as an example as I cover these key topics:

  • What is CRT (Critical Race Theory)
  • How CRT gets into schools
  • How CRT shows up in schools & classrooms
  • But they say CRT isn’t being taught…
  • How they deal with pushback
  • Does CRT work?

This only scratches the surface of many areas, especially examples of how CRT shows up in classrooms. But hopefully this helps explain, in a nutshell, what has been going on and why many people like us are pushing back.
