Critical Race Theory

Tuesday, July 27, 2021 at 06:00 PM

Critical Race Theory (CRT) is making headlines across the country as candidates for local offices take positions regarding whether students should be exposed to this learning approach. But even as candidates are taking pledges and local school boards are being protested, many of us still lack an understanding of what CRT really is and what it means for education. As we head to the polls for school board and local elections this year, it is on each of us to have the facts and make informed decisions regarding how CRT is being used as a rallying call this election year.
You're invited to join our panel of experts for a conversation around why CRT is becoming such a controversial issue and what it means for public education.
Our panelists include:
  • Chase Billingham, Associate Professor of Sociology, Wichita State University
  • Danedri Herbert, Editor at The Sentinel
  • Mark E. McCormick, Director Of Communications, ACLU of Kansas and 3rd District Commissioner, Kansas African American Affairs Commission
  • Moderated by Dr. Liz Meitl, Alternative Certification Program Adviser at Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools and Mainstream Coalition Board member

Due to previous precedent, we've opened this event up to the public.
