No, kids should be racially color blind instead of being taught they are inherently racist or disadvantaged based on the color of their skin

No, while our history is tragic, as it comes to K-12 education, social theory won't help them. Understanding of what has happened on a factual basis can help individuals come to their own conclusions and offer a good discourse between different groups.

@8WFGR5H from Montana commented…12mos

I agree in principle but how do you decide what facts and more importantly from which sources you teach

No,because Critical Race Theory is a Jewish supremacist doctrine that encourages racial hatred against people of European racial stock.

No, teaching a group of people they are literally, inherently evil will only serve to make them give up and just be evil instead.

@2BFTRTKfrom Texas  disagreed…2yrs

Critical Race Theory doesn't teach that any group of people is "evil". Please try to understand what terms actually mean before giving your opinion on them.

American History, with all of it's flaws should be taught in schools. CRT is a graduate level course. Re-branding our history to whitewash it is morally apprehensible.

Teaching that our laws, etc. are biased as opposed to racist seems a more reasonable approach.

No, there is only one race. The human race. This is what should be taught. All other races do not exist.

@8P2H2PB  from Missouri commented…2yrs

The Human race is a species, like everything else it can be divided. And if taught this they could realize how incredibly one sided this world is. You sound incredibly ignorant right now. And a 9th grader just told you how society works.

Race doesn't exist period, any attempts to specifically define it or push it almost immediately fall apart. What specific race are mixed race children? If someone disagrees how can I objectively prove someone is a specific race? This problem expounds once you realize that as early as 100-150 years ago Germans weren't considered white by the English.

So you think all the kids will magically belive this. kids can be STUPID, but not THAT stupid

No, Kids should be raised racially colorblind and should not be taught in school from a young age to hate the country they live in

If only this was what actually happens. CRT isn't even in public education it's a perspective on criminal justice, particularly the phenomenon surrounding racial crimerates despite race technically not even existing. It's a social construct we made up and redefined for several centuries. If you think we should be racially colorblind, I'm with you, but you can't pretend you're moving against that by blaming CRT.

No, conflict theory in general is heavily flawed in terms of historiography. Conflict theorists, of which Critical Race Theory is a part of, set out not to show events as they were, but to prove a point. Conflict theorists like those who wrote the 1619 Project downplay examples of unity or outright ignore them at best and create utter lies at worst. Take for example the now deleted claim from the 1619 Project that among the chief causes of the American revolution was the rising sentiment of abolition in Great Britain. This claim was found to be so fraudulent that the New York Times had to

No. Children should be taught about our institutions, laws, and history, but in a way that helps them understand why those things have been founded or written in the way that they are. History and the beliefs that were relevant at the point and time should be discussed, but the Critical Race Theory should not be taught as something that is present in every aspect of society.

@942JMM2Democrat from Indiana disagreed…2mos

Yes, we cannot end racism until we acknowledge that our institutions, laws, and history are inherently racist

Yet it is. I live in Indiana too, and I see hate toward people of color every day

@95WHG8R from Illinois answered…27mins

Yes, but it should be taught as a theory and not a mandatory method of viewing society.

@95WGX25 from California answered…50mins

Critical race theory isn’t being taught in our schools. It’s a branch of legal studies that is not at all taught to children. We cannot call any mention of racism in classes “CRT” it’s irresponsible and literally the admitted goal of far right extremists.

@95WGWBP from Florida answered…51mins

It really depends. If it were to be taught, I'd say it should be taught only during high school.

@95W89Z4 from California answered…5hrs

No Masters level course should be, but the acknowledgment of things like slavery, the holocaust, and racism should be protected from the laws pretending as if critical race theory is even being proposed to be taught to children.

@95VMBDK from California answered…15hrs

No, but because critical race theory is a very specific critique that was never taught in k-12 schools to begin with. If the question is if children should be taught about the realities of racism and our history then yes.

It's my understanding that this is a college level topic and it's not something I would teach in my US Government class for 12th grade. I think other racial issues should be discussed however.

Critical race theory is a meaningless buzzword and while schools should reveal these systemic issues I refuse to call it critical race theory.

@95VGJQ2 from California answered…21hrs

I believe that critical race theory should be taught in school because it is accurate and is American history. If a school were not to teach about slavery how would schools be able to accurately teach about the Harlem renaissance later on in students school carrier without absolute confusion. We should not romanticize the way that people have been treated based off of the color of their skin or where they come from just because it makes people a little bit uncomfortable. It should be uncomfortable, and the uncomfortable will come with the drive to want to change the future to better our society and eventually be able to say that hate crimes will come to an end.

"Critical race theory" is a boogeyman created by right-wing provocateurs and the current response options for this question indicate that whoever put it on this website doesn't understand what it actually is and has bought into deceptive right-wing framing

No, critical race theory is an idea related to civil law. It is an invented outrage and has nothing to do with K-12 education.
